Claddagh stands for Love, Loyalty and Friendship. Made in County Wicklow from Fado Jewelry. 10K. yellow gold.
The Claddagh is probably the most well known Irish symbol. The hands represent friendship, the crown represents loyalty, and the heart, of course, love . As legend goes, an Irish sailor sold into slavery cherished the memory of his sweetheart through his trials and tribulations. Upon his return to Galway after a number of years, he gave her a handmade Claddagh ring as a symbol of his dedication- "With these hands I give you my heart, and I crown it with my love".
