This timeless Irish ring has been around for centuries, symbolizing love and Irish heritage showing off beautiful designs and quality craftsmanship.
The Claddagh (An Cladach,) meaning “the shore” was the name of the village in Galway where the Claddagh originated. Legend tells us that it was Richard Joyce, a silversmith from the village that invented the Claddagh. Pirates came to the village and captured a fishing boat and sold the crew as slaves, one of whom was Richard Joyce who had been married just one week.
Joyce was sold to a Turkish Gold Smith where he spent 14 years longing to be reunited with his love back home. During this time he made a gold ring to which he would give to her if they were ever to be reunited. When Joyce finally returned to the Claddagh his love had waited for him. He went on to marry her giving her the ring he had designed and crafted which evidently went on to become one of Ireland’s most beautiful and memorable jewelry designs famously known as the Claddagh Ring.
The Claddagh design consists of two hands clasping a heart, surrounded by a crown, the heart being a symbol of love, the hands symbolizing friendship and the crown symbolizing loyalty.
