Claddagh Jewelry

The tiny fishing village of Claddagh bustles feverishly, a chaotic smorgasbord of motion and sound. The year is 1593 and Master Goldsmith Richard Joyce gazes out upon Galway Bay, preoccupied with his latest custom design. A design destined to become an enduring part of Ireland's heritage.

The Claddagh Ring, features two hands grasping a heart, topped by a crown.

It symbolizes Love, Friendship and Loyalty. Worn on the right hand with the heart pointing toward the wrist, it means the wearer is in a relationship. With the heart pointing toward the fingertips, the wearer is single and may be looking for love. If worn on the left hand, with the heart pointing toward the wrist, the wearer is married. With the heart pointing toward the fingertips, the wearer is engaged.
