Traditional Irish Claddagh Rings - Symbols of Love, Loyalty and Friendship
The Irish Claddagh ring (or fáinne Chladaigh in Irish) is a traditional style of Irish ring, and is the ultimate symbol of love, loyalty, and friendship. The Claddagh design is made up of three essential elements - two hands clasping the central point of the heart, above which is an ornate crown. The heart is a symbol of love, the crown signifies loyalty, the hands symbolize friendship. Worn by both ladies and gents, these beautiful and iconic Irish rings, also known as Irish heart rings, have been exchanged between friends and lovers for many years.
