There is no better way to mark an everlasting love, special relationship, or meaningful friendship than with an Irish claddagh ring, and Factory Direct Jewelry has one of the largest online claddagh ring collections available.
Generally referred to as Irish or Celtic, gold claddagh rings are traditionally given as a token of love or worn as a wedding ring. The original design and customs associated with the claddagh ring are derived from the the Irish fishing village of Claddagh, situated outside the city of Galway in Ireland.
The unique and distinctive claddagh ring design features two hands holding a heart, with the heart usually topped by a crown. Each element of this highly recognizable design is said to represent a desirable quality. The heart represents love, the hands represent friendship, and the crown represents loyalty. Due to these three traits, claddagh rings are worn as a symbol of friendship, love, engagement, or as Celtic wedding rings depending on the intention of the wearer and/or the giver.
According to traditional Claddagh ring meaning,the way a claddagh ring is worn signals the relationship status of the wearer. If the claddagh ring is worn on the right ring finger with the heart pointing to the fingertip, it means the wearer is free of any attachment. If the claddagh ring is worn on the right ring finger with the heart pointing away from the fingertip, it means the wearer is romantically involved. If the claddagh ring is worn on the left ring finger, it means the wearer is married or engaged to be married.
