Sterling Silver Classic Claddagh Birthstone Ring, I give you my heart in friendship and crown it with my love.
The Claddagh is a traditional Irish jewellery piece, given in friendship and is often worn as a wedding ring. The design and customs associated with it originated in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh just outside the old walls of the city of Galway. The Claddagh,s distinctive design features two hands clasping a heart, and surmounted by a crown. The elements of this symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown). If you wear a Claddagh ring with the narrow part of the heart pointing towards your heart, it means that you are taken. Wearing the ring with the point of the heart facing out means that you are free.
