Streamlined and gallant, this gentleman?s sterling silver ring features the pledge of the Claddagh etched on the inside of the band: Love, Loyalty, Friendship. The comfort fit means that the wearer barely feels its presence on his finger. Simple details in the cuffs and crown add texture and sophistication.
The Story of the Claddagh
Many theories exist regarding the origin of the Claddagh. One tale involves a woman who inherited great wealth from her first husband, and when she married her second husband?the mayor of Galway?she used her inheritance to build bridges in Connacht. As a reward for her charity, an eagle dropped the ring in her lap. Another story explains how a prince fell in love with a common maid, and fashioned the Claddagh to prove to her father that his intentions were pure. The most popular legend tells of Richard Joyce, who was kidnapped and sold to a goldsmith after leaving his hometown of Galway and the woman he loved to work in the West Indies. He learned the craft of his master, and when he was set free, he brought back the first Claddagh ring to his beloved as a sign of his commitment.
A Token for the Telling
This ring is as sleek and orderly as the gentleman who owns it. He most likely wants to showcase his adoration for the special woman in his life, and his unavailability to others, by wearing the bottom of the heart pointed inward. While his relationship may not quite be ready for marriage, he is open to traveling that path of ultimate loyalty when the time is right. Or perhaps he plans to purchase this ring as a wedding band for himself. In Ireland, many men and women don this symbol to honor their betrothals. In any case, this gentleman likes the idea of both continuing tradition and looking forward to future joys.
