Where to buy a sterling silver Claddagh ring

The Irish Claddagh ring is traditionally given as a token of love or worn as a wedding ring. The significance, history, and meaning of the Claddagh rings began over 300 years ago in a small fishing village in Claddagh, overlooking Galway Bay. This article explains where to buy a sterling silver Claddagh ring.

The meaning of the Claddagh ring

What do they mean? The Claddagh ring's meaning is what makes the ring important. The hands of the ring hold the heart, which signifies friendship, while the heart denotes love and the crown loyalty. However, the meaning of the Claddagh ring is not just with the clasping hands, crown, and heart, it also extends to how you wear the ring and in which hand. If an engaged or married person is wearing it, then they will have their Claddagh ring on their left hand with the crown pointing away from their heart. For someone who is considering love, then the ring is worn on the right hand with the crown pointing away from their heart. For a person who doesn't want to start a relationship, they will also have their Claddagh ring on their right hand, but with the crown pointing towards their heart. It is because of this deep meaning that the Claddagh is the perfect wedding ring, birthstone ring, and engagement ring. Furthermore, the ring is often sought out as a faith ring. As people become more focused on the materials of life, loyalty, love and friendship can be hard to find, which is why the Claddagh ring is a wonderful Irish friendship ring to give as a gift to show someone that you care. Male Claddagh rings Just as there are Claddagh rings for women, there are also men's Claddagh rings. However, they tend to be heavier than the women's rings. Of course, due to the lifestyles and the fact that men are not as careful with jewellery as compared to women, a good gold Claddagh ring is required. Even though, a male Claddagh ring can receive the same quality craftsmanship, the design of the ring should focus on its durability and sturdiness.
