Mens Sterling Silver Slim Claddagh Ring
Legend of the Claddagh
The early history of the Claddagh goes back over 400 years to a small fishing village nestled on the shores of Galway Bay.
Here the Claddagh became a token of love, loyalty and friendship when a seafaring Spanish goldsmith fell in love with a girl from the Claddagh village and crafted the first Claddagh ring for her. Since that time the Claddagh has become a symbol of love throughout the world.
A Claddagh with the heart facing towards one's heart is seen as a proclamation of love and the heart facing away from one's heart is a sign of being uncommitted.
The crown is for loyalty, as a man promises to be loyal for life to his bethrothed. The hands represent friendship as one's partner in life is also ones best friend.
We hope you enjoy this beautiful Claddagh piece and invite you to browse our many other Claddagh themed products.
