The meaning of the Irish Claddagh came into being over three centuries ago. Well before the 1700s however, in Roman times rings in the shape of clasping hands represented a vow of faith between two individuals. Today one wears the bottom of the Claddagh heart pointed outward if he or she is open to love and pointed inward if he or she is already committed to someone special. The Claddagh carvings that adorn this ring extending left and right signal the diamond as the central symbol and reinforce the end of a woman’s journey to find her life partner.
Someone who appreciates subtlety in her jewelry would wear this mount to showcase the brilliant stone from her beloved. From afar the Claddagh shoulders may give the illusion of a gift bow tied around the diamond. Surveying the ring up close one discovers the understated etchings of love loyalty and friendship.
