Very few ring designs combine cultural significance and timeless elegance as the Claddagh ring does. While the clasped hands or Fede ring design originated in ancient Rome, the Claddagh dates back to early 18th century Galway, Ireland. There are many legends surrounding its creation but the meaning remains the same. The heart, the crown and the hands portray the trinity of love, loyalty and friendship. This Claddagh makes a heartfelt gift in many instances. A mother can pass it down to their daughter to symbolize the coming of age, a token exchanged amongst friends, or the pledge of love in marriage. However, it is in the positioning of the ring where the deeper meaning is found…
Left Hand Outward - When the ring is on the left ring finger with the heart facing outward, the wearer is engaged.
Left Hand Inward - When on the left hand with the heart facing inward, the wearer is married.
Right Hand Outward - When the ring is on the right hand with the heart facing outward, the wearer is single.
Right Hand Inward- When on the right hand with the heart facing inward, the wearer is in a relationship.
This celtic style and shape has weathered the centuries relatively unchanged, but the precious stones and metal can be crafted to ones taste or budget. From subtle sterling silver to stunning meldings of emerald and gold, the Claddagh is the perfect indication of appreciation to someone you share the human experience with.
