The slender curves of this sterling silver Claddagh pendant give it a graceful appeal. Careful texture in the cuffs and crown speak to the nimble hand of ShanOre craftsmen, as well as the attention one should pay to the meaning of this traditional Irish symbol. Delicate stones in the spirit of diamonds and emeralds embellish one side of the heart, like a sash of sparkling flowers.
The Essence of the Claddagh
The Claddagh symbol finds its most popular history in the 17th-century tale of Richard Joyce, a young man from Galway, Ireland who was kidnapped on his way to the Irish slave plantations in the West Indies to work. He was sold to a Moorish goldsmith, to whom he became an apprentice. When Joyce was finally released from captivity, he returned to Galway to find his once true love waiting for him. As a sign of his commitment to her, he gave her what is now known as the first Claddagh wedding ring. The Claddagh design gives many kinds of jewelry a precious quality these days. The hands represent friendship; the heart, love; and the crown, loyalty.
The slight constitution of this pendant reflects the gentleness of its wearer. The dusting of jewels alludes to her modesty, but also her femininity. Emeralds are often linked to the powers of sight and intuition, and insinuate the wisdom and perceptiveness of the individual born in the month of May. These gems also supply the owner with rejuvenating energy and emotional nourishment. A pendant this lovely would prove a fitting gift for the woman celebrating a birthday, a graduation, or a promotion, and would certainly confirm the strength of a suitor's admiration.
