The claddagh Symbol

The Claddagh has long been associated with the motto “Let Love and Friendship Reign”

The Claddagh Ring originated in the Claddagh fishing village near Galway City
in the West of Ireland.

The ring shows two hands (representing friendship) presenting a heart
(representing love) adorned by a crown (representing loyalty) and it is thus the
traditional Irish wedding band.

The ring became popular outside the Claddagh about the middle of the last
century, especially as it was claimed to be the only ring made in Ireland ever to
be worn by Queen Victoria and later King Edward VII.


The Significance of the Claddagh Ring ...
It is not right for a Claddagh person to buy a ring - they must obtain it as
a gift.

When the Claddagh (also spelled Claddah) ring is worn on the right hand,
crown turned inwards, your heart is yet unoccupied.

When it is worn on the right hand, crown turned outwards, shows a special
commitment to someone.

When it is worn on the left hand, crown outwards, let our love and friendship
reign forever - never to be separated
