The meaning of the word Claddagh refers to a small fishing village in Galway, Ireland. The Claddagh was first created in this fishing village and was therefore called the ‘Claddagh Ring’. The Claddagh ring has a heart held by two hands. A crown is shown on the top of the heart. The first Claddagh was made as a show of love between two hearts that were oceans apart. The heart denotes love, the hands show friendship and togetherness. Finally the crown signifies loyalty.
