Description

This Claddagh Pendant with Gold Heart has Celtic knot-work along a circle with a Claddagh symbol at the bottom. The Claddagh Heart is a solid 10K gold heart. This pendant symbolizes love, the hand’s friendship and the crown loyalty.

The Claddagh Ring dates to the 17th century and originated in the little fishing village of Claddagh in County Galway, Ireland. 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 Goldsmith, and from his master he learned and excelled at the craft.

He was finally released after 14 years, on the orders of William III. The Goldsmith for whom he was working for was so impressed by his work that he offered his daughters hand in marriage to him as well as half his property to try and get him to stay. But Joyce refused the offer and 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. For centuries this was used as a wedding ring by the fisher folk of Claddagh village.

We also have a matching Claddagh Ring and Claddagh Earrings that would be perfect with this Claddagh Pendant with Gold Heart. This is a great gift for yourself to add a bit of Irish heritage into your life!
