The Claddagh is one of the most popular symbols in Irish jewelry. Legend has it that Richard Joyce, a Galway native, was captured and sold to slavery in North Africa. However, Joyce found himself slave to a Turkish silversmith, and from his master he learned and excelled at the craft.
He was released from slavery after 14 years and he returned to Galway. In Galway his sweetheart was waiting for him. But while in captivity, he had made what we now know as the Claddagh Ring especially for her. The heart symbolizes love, the hand’s friendship and the crown loyalty.
Celtic designs have been a symbolic tradition for thousands of years and often signifies a true love bond, as is the case with the Claddagh: the heart and hands design.
Claddagh rings are worn as friendship, engagement or wedding rings depending on how they are worn.
- Friendship: by placing the ring anywhere on your right hand.
- Engagement: by placing the ring on the third finger of your left hand with the heart pointing outwards.
- Wedding: by placing the ring on the third finger of your left hand with the heart pointing inwards towards your heart.
