The Claddagh ring (Irish: fáinne Chladaigh) is a traditional Irish ring given which represents love, loyalty, and friendship (the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty).
The design and customs associated with it originated in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh, located just outside the old city walls of Galway, now part of Galway City. The ring, as currently known, was first produced in the 17th century.
This incarnation is a large ring, measuring 19mm from the top of the crown to the bottom of the heart. It weighs a minimum of 5.4 grams and is available in sizes Q-Z. For sizes outside this range, please contact me. Priced per size due to weight.
