Claddagh Jewelry

Claddagh Jewelry: The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish ring that represents love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown). The design and customs associated with the Claddagh ring originated in the Irish fishing village of the same name in Galway, Ireland.

The ring was first produced in the 17th century, although the elements of the design are much older. The story goes that a man named Richard Joyce, who was from the village of Claddagh, was captured by Algerian pirates and sold into slavery. Joyce was sold to a goldsmith, where he learned the trade. When he was released, he returned to Claddagh and began producing the distinctive rings.

The Claddagh ring is traditionally worn on the right hand with the heart facing outwards to signal that the wearer is single, and with the heart facing inwards if the wearer is in a relationship. If worn on the left hand, an outward-facing heart signifies the wearer is engaged, and an inward-facing heart signifies the wearer is married.
