The Claddagh Ring

The Claddagh ring  in Irish is fáinne Chladaigh. It is a traditional Irish ring given as a symbol of love, loyalty, and friendship. Each part of the Claddagh ring has a meaning. The Claddagh ring hands represent friendship, the heart represents love and the crown represents loyalty.

The Claddagh ring design and tradition began in the small Irish fishing village of Claddagh, Ireland. Claddagh is situated just outside the old city walls of Galway, now part of Galway City. It is said that the Claddagh ring was first produced in the 17th century.

As the Claddagh story goes long ago a young man was captured and sold into slavery from the fishing village of Claddagh. Many years passed and he wondered if his true love would wait for him.
