Horses were highly valued by the Celts. A man might well have been judged by the quality of the horses he kept by how well he treated them. Evidence exists that shows a good horse was sometimes treated with the same respect and reverence due a chieftan. They were symbols of virility, strength, and stamina.
This ring features "Inverurie Horses" - a copy of a design created by George Bain, which was inspired by a Pictish image of a horse he found carved into a stone in Inverurie, Scotland. It is also commonly thought to represent the three "Great Horse" goddesses of Celtic mythology: "Epona" (Gaulish), "Macha" (Irish), and "Rhiannon" (Welsh).
Each of our rings is made from sterling silver (92.5% purity), and moulded to a variety of sizes. Their genuine craftsmanship is sure to please the eye, and the deep symbolism of their designs connects them to our hearts and minds.
