Today's show is brought to you by My Irish Jeweler

My Irish Jeweler is a great website out of Dublin, Ireland. They make Celtic Rings & Jewelry for Men & Women and ship for Free all over the world.

Amber Rodland was excited to hear about our sponsor because she wrote: I have always had a love for all things Celtic. We were never a fan of traditional wedding bands. My husband searched the web and found My Irish Jeweler. We fell in love with the Book of Kells band and got it in platinum, and we love them! I cannot say enough about the attention to detail put into these bands. In fact, the jeweler actually called us from Dublin, Ireland to confirm our sizes. The rings are very unique and a great reflection of us as a couple. We'll have been married for three years this coming Samhain, and I still get compliments on our bands. They are so beautiful and well-crafted. I recommend My Irish Jeweler to my friends looking for unique jewelry with a Celtic flair.

But it's not just about wedding rings. My Irish Jeweler has a great range of Celtic Cross Pendants, Claddagh Jewelry and other super gift ideas. Always made in Ireland. Always free shipping. Go to
