The Legend of St. Brigid

Also known as St Brigid, she is Ireland's most famous female saint. Born in 450 AD in County Louth to a pagan chieftain and Christian mother, Bridget was named after the Celtic goddess of Spring, fertility, craft, and poetry. She was inspired by her contemporary St Patrick to follow the Christian path, choosing to devote her life to the poor and needy instead of finding a husband. She even prayed for her beauty to be taken away so no-one would want her hand in marriage. 
She founded many convents and monasteries throughout Ireland, as well as a school for art. She became a folk heroine, with any miracles, relics, and mythical stories associated with her name. Today, making a 'St Bridget's cross' is an Irish custom at the start of Spring on February 1st - St Bridget's Day, traditionally made out of rushes.

Love this ring. I have many Claddagh, but this one by far is my favorite. The detail on this ring is gorgeous. The pattern on the ring band is delicate but strong, Connemara marble is so pretty. I absolutely love this ring!
