Description

This Heart Shamrock Claddagh Pendant is sterling silver, with touches of plated rose gold. It is based on the Celtic vine and includes the shamrock and all the elements of the Claddagh symbol. The Claddagh heart symbolizes love, the hand’s friendship and the crown loyalty.

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 finally released after 14 years. He returned to Galway where his sweetheart awaited him. But while in captivity, he had made what we now know as the Claddagh Ring especially for her.

This pendant also includes beautiful silver shamrocks. The name ‘shamrock’ comes from the Irish name “seamrog”, meaning little clover. The shamrock plant is recognised the world over as the badge of Ireland. It has been a symbol of Ireland since the 18th century.

The shamrock’s most direct link to the Irish people comes in the form of the legend of Saint Patrick bringing Christianity to Ireland. So according to legend, Saint Patrick explained the Christian Holy Trinity to the people of Ireland using the three leaves of the shamrock as a metaphor.

Across the world the Shamrock is used as a mark of Irish heritage. It’s worn by millions every year on the 17th March, St. Patrick’s Day!

Matching Heart Shamrock Claddagh earrings are also available to complete the look with this Heart Shamrock Claddagh Pendant.
