Curiosity about The Claddagh
The Claddagh design originally developed out of a type of European ring called a ‘fede’ ring composed of two clasped hands. ‘Fede’ refers to the loyalty that binds two individuals a promise certified by a handshake. Depending on its position the Irish Claddagh ring signals the state of a search for love. If worn on the right hand with the crown pointing away from the owner’s heart the ring suggests that love may very well be on the horizon if worn on the right hand with the crown inward toward the wearer’s heart he or she is still seeking love. An individual who wears the ring on his or her left hand with the crown turned outward is usually married.
Give Classic a Spark
This version of the Claddagh ring attracts a woman who proclaims faith to her Irish heritage and champions the classic integrity of the nation’s trademarks. She is also intent on dispelling any assumptions that she might be too conservative thus the diamond accents that brighten a conventional look. Whether she has given this ring to herself as a reward or a pick-me-up or whether she has accepted it from a significant other most likely she has done the choosing.
