rish Celtic Unisex Claddagh CLADDAUGH Ring Handcrafted 925 Sterling Silver
The Irish Claddagh symbolizes Love, Loyalty and Friendship
The Claddaghs distinctive design features two hands clasping a heart, and usually surmounted by a crown. The elements of this symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown). A Fenian Claddagh ring, without a crown, was later designed in Dublin. Claddagh rings, with or without the crown (most commonly with a crown), have come to denote pride in Irish heritage, while continuing to be symbols of love and marriage.
Claddagh rings may be used as friendship or relationship rings depending on the intention of wearer and, in the case of a gift, of the giver. There are three traditionally accepted ways of wearing the ring which may signal someones relationship status:
1.When worn on the right ring finger with the heart pointing to the fingertip, the wearer is free of any attachment.
2.On the same finger but the other way round, with the heart pointing away from the fingertip, it suggests someone is romantically involved.
3.When the ring is on the left hand wedding ring finger, it means the person is married or engaged
