This Dancing Stone Claddagh Ring is part of Boru’s Damhsa – Dancing Stone Collection. The centre CZ stone literally ‘Dances’ with movement, making it sparkle and shimmer. This Celtic Ring incorporates a traditional Irish Claddagh symbol along with clear CZ stones along the side.
The Claddagh symbol in this Dancing Stone Claddagh Ring represent love, loyalty, and also friendship. It’s the perfect gift for a loved one or for a good friend.
Legend has it that the Claddagh symbol was originated by Richard Joyce, a Galway native. He was captured and sold into slavery in North Africa. However, while he was there, he was taught his craft by a Moorish goldsmith.
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.
Celtic designs have been a symbolic tradition for thousands of years and often signifies a true love bond, as is the case with Claddagh: the heart and hands design.
We also have a matching Dancing Stone Pendant for this Celtic Ring.
