Claddagh Rings

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.

The origins of the Claddagh ring design come from the Irish fishing village of Claddagh, near to Connemara in Galway, Ireland. Dating back to the 17th century, the Claddagh ring has grown to become an iconic part of Irish heritage. Since their creation, Claddagh rings and Claddagh jewelry have remained popular in Galway and throughout Ireland, both with those of Irish heritage and visitors to the country alike.
