The Claddagh

The Claddagh ring is the traditional Irish wedding ring. The symbolism of the Claddagh ring gives it significance and timelessness:

Irish Claddagh
  • The hands denote friendship and togetherness
  • The heart is a sign of love
  • And the crown above the heart signifies loyalty and fidelity

The history of the Claddagh ring dates back to the 17th century. The tradition of Claddagh rings first started in a small fishing village in Ireland called the Claddagh. The word Claddagh itself comes from the Irish term 'An Cladach' which means a 'flat stony shore'.  The Claddagh is worn by people of Irish descent the world over as a source of pride in their heritage. The Claddagh motto is a beautiful description of the essence of the Irish spirit...

"Let Love and Friendship Reign!"
