My husband bought my Croí álainn bracelet a number of years ago. It's now slightly bent - like us it's been through the wars - and the inscription is starting to wear but I wear it all the time as a replacement for my wedding ring which I can't really wear all the time for various reasons. For us it symbolises two very different people to make one durable and fab union that often gets comments! That's us as a couple as well as the piece! Good v silver united to form a strong unit.
