The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish ring 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 the same name in Galway. The ring, as currently known, was first produced in the 17th century. According to Irish author
Colin Murphy, a Claddagh ring was worn with the intention of conveying the wearer's relationship status: (1) On the right hand with
the point of the heart toward the fingertips: the wearer is single and may be looking for love. (2) On the right hand with the point of
the heart toward the wrist: the wearer is in a relationship. (3) On the left ring finger with the point of the heart toward the fingertips:
the wearer is engaged. (4) On the left ring finger with the point of the heart toward the wrist: the wearer is married. There are other
localized variations and oral traditions, involving the hand and the finger on which the Claddagh is worn. Folklore about the ring is
relatively recent, not ancient, with "very little native Irish writing about the ring", hence, the difficulty today in finding any source that
describes or explains the traditional ways of wearing the ring.
