Irish wedding bells feature traditional symbols with the most popular being the Claddagh. Any of our designs are suitable as an Irish make-up bell.
The Irish Gift House offers a grand selection of a traditional Irish wedding gift that is often called an Irish make-up bell. Of great significance is the Claddagh bell, as the symbolism of this Irish icon is friendship, loyalty, and love: elements that go hand and hand with marriage.
Our most popular Claddagh make-up bell is made in Ireland by Mullingar Pewter, but don't miss the brass selections from Liffey Artefacts along with the Irish wedding bells that are made by Galway Crystal. Galway Crystal is 24% leaded crystal, and it is the lead in the crystal that provides the beautiful sounding ring.
An old Irish tradition is to give a bell on the occasion of a wedding. A decisive moment is always announced by the ringing of a bell and in Irish culture it is no different. The bell affords good luck and if at any time during the marriage there is discord, the ancient Irish remedy for lovers’ quarrels is to ring this make up bell, breaking the spirit of discord and renewing the spirit of love.
