Handfasting - An event dating back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage prior to the availability of rings as well as precious metals.

Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this special day.
The Quaich - Initially crafted from wood the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking vessel rolled right into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her throughout the marriage, From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup".
