The Celtic legend dates back to the 17th century in Ireland where the use of a wooden wedding goblet was a Celtic tradition.
The legend states that a young man in love would go into the forest to find a sturdy piece of wood, which he uses to carve out a goblet. The goblet was carved with two captive rings remaining on the stem of the goblet. The rings were carved without separating them from the original piece of wood.
The goblet is then used by the bride and groom to toast each other on their wedding day. The two rings symbolize strength, unity, eternity and a never to be broken bond of love between them.
