The Irish have used the Claddagh symbol in their art, history and culture for centuries. Embodied by two supportive hands, a heart of sterling silver and a crown atop the two, this pendant is highlighted by an arch of subtle and glowing diamonds. Sterling silver. Pendant is 17.5mm by 25mm and comes with an 18'' Sterling silver chain. Made in Dublin, Ireland.
Matching earrings available.
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".
