The Claddagh ring has a very distinctive design featuring two hands holding a crowned heart. Each piece of the symbol is related to qualities of love – the heart (love), the hands (friendship), and the crown (loyalty). The Claddagh ring is one of the most recognized Irish symbols, particularly for Irish jewelry.
Claddagh rings are often used either as friendship rings, or as Irish wedding rings. The design of the Claddagh ring makes it appropriate for either use. However, there are different ways to wear the Claddagh ring, and those ways are detailed further in our article How to wear the Claddagh ring.
Our Claddagh rings are all crafted in Ireland and hallmarked at the Assay Office in Dublin Castle, as required by Irish law since 1637. Each is presented in a luxurious presentation box for gift-giving.
