Claddagh

My collection of Claddagh ring designs are the latest in a long history of Claddaghs, which first began three hundred years ago in the small fishing village of Claddagh in County Galway. The design of two hands surrounding a heart with a crown symbolises friendship, love and loyalty. Traditionally, there are three ways of wearing the ring. When worn on the right hand with the heart facing outwards, the wearer is not romantically attached, but if the heart faces inwards there is someone special in their life. When worn on the left hand it indicates the wearer is engaged or married.
