Sterling Claddagh Rings & Pendants
Sterling Claddagh Rings
It is believed that a Richard Ioyes, of Galway, Ireland, created the Claddagh around the end of the seventeenth century, upon his return from a rather eventful trip, intended for the West Indies. Before getting very far along in the voyage, Algerian pirates captured and sold him as a slave to a Moorish goldsmith. Luckily for us, Richard's master taught him the art of metalworking. He put it to wonderful use creating a ring rich with matrimonial symbolism. The heart stands for love, the hands for friendship and the crown for fidelity. A Claddagh may be given as a token of friendship, received as a wedding ring, or worn just because you like it. The engraving on our Claddagh Rings is the same style as our Large Claddagh Pendant #230-L.
