Recently I came across an article about an old Irish tradition, that newly engaged couples are presented with a crystal bell to help them to resolve any differences.
This is new to me. I only know about engagement rings, but that is gifts between the couples. Normally what do you give to your friends on their engagement? I don’t remember I had received any engagement gifts.
If there is such tradition here, then it may be a good idea to give the engaged couple one of these crystal bells. Look, they are so beautiful…
Text or company logo can be engraved on the bell, so it can be a good corporate gift too.
IBgifts.com claims that each piece of the Tyrone Crystal passes through the hands of 26 people before it is finished, made from start to finish by the hands of traditionally skilled craftsmen.
26 people?! Hmm… it looks like quite inefficient in the production line. It certainly is not a selling point to me - I want something that is cheap and yet good quality. Hahaha!
