Sterling Silver Celtic Claddagh Knot Pendant! So beautiful!

Many fables surround the Claddagh, one of Ireland’s unique treasures; two hands cradling a crowned heart. The heart symbolizes love, the hands friendship and the crown loyalty. Wear the ring on the right hand, crown turned inwards, indicates that love is being considered. Worn on the left hand, the crown turned outward signifies all your heart is truly spoken for. It is believed that Richard Joyce made the original Claddagh ring around 1690. He lived in a little fishing village called “Claddagh” near Galway City. The vast exodus of refugees helped the popularity of the Claddagh from Ireland to places all over the world during the Great Potato Famine of 1847-49.

Once upon a time, so the story goes a young Irish sailor was captured and sold into slavery. Far from his native land, he held the memory of his sweetheart deep in his heart. He never forgot her. Years later, on his safe return to Galway his gift to her was a Claddagh Ring. Forged with the skills he learnt during his imprisonment, it was a token of his enduring love. “With these hands I give you my heart and I crown it with my love”. The Claddagh holds the memory of true love that can last forever.

It tells the world: two hearts have joined together forever. Wear it and be part of a never ending love story.
