Choosing a Claddagh ring for a man
Maybe you aren’t sure if your brother is the type that would wear a Claddagh ring and you are reluctant to buy one. But here’s the thing: Claddagh rings aren’t worn simply as an adornment, but mostly for what they represent. A man that receives and wears a Claddagh ring today is wearing history.
Claddagh rings are worn for romantic or familial reasons. In this case, a Claddagh ring signifies an appreciation of Irish heritage and a celebration of your relationship as siblings.
How to properly choose a Claddagh ring for your brother
First, you need to keep in mind the fit of the ring. Before actually buying one, you have to make sure that the ring is the right size. You can choose the right fit by consulting our comprehensive guide on how to find your ring size.
There can be tons of reasons why ring sizes fluctuate (temperature, diet, time of day), so make sure you have the right measurement when ordering your ring. It can’t be too tight as it will be uncomfortable. It can’t be too loose, as the wearer will risk losing it. Because it’s a special gift and you want it to be memorable, maybe you can secretly use one of your brother’s other rings for a more precise sizing.
Once you’re sure of the size, the fun begins! There are certainly different types of Claddagh rings to choose from. You should consider a more traditional type as pictured below if your brother is more of a conservative and mature, the kind of man who doesn’t like flashy things or precious stones, and he is always polished and smartly dressed. You just have to take his personal style as an indicator.

On the other hand, if your brother embraces a fashionable style, maybe you should consider the more modern variant of the Claddagh ring: a band decorated with the three iconic symbols: hands, heart, and crown.
Also, don’t forget that many men prefer the more oxidised and darkened style of jewellery, which lends a touch of masculinity to this fabulous ring.
BORU Jewelry offers premium Claddagh rings that are available in a wide variety of precious metal options, such as 925 sterling silver, 14K gold, or 14K white gold.
