The famous Claddagh ring, also known as an Irish heart ring is a symbol of three things that are love, loyalty and friendship.

The history of Claddagh rings

The first Claddagh was invented in Galway more than 400 years ago in a small fishing village called Claddagh. Richard Joyce is the most likely candidate to be the first creator.

Claddagh Ring How to wear it

It can be worn on your left or right hand, based on the message you wish to communicate. If the heart is looking outwards on your left hand, it is a sign of engagement. If the heart is pointing towards the inside of this hand, the ring will indicate that you are married.

If you wear the ring to the right side, with the heart facing outwards, it indicates that you are single and still seeking love. Wearing the ring with your heart pointing inwards to the right signifies that you're currently in a serious relationship. Of course, you may opt to not adhere to these rules and wear the ring however you would like.

This ring can also be a great engagement ring, and can be used to create a meaningful ritual during the wedding ceremony. Your partner can move the ring from their right hand to the left to signify your marriage.

If you prefer an original wedding ring, you can always ask for a custom Claddagh ring created. Certain customizations include Celtic symbols or diamond bands.

This Irish ring is suitable for both women and men. Men prefer Claddagh rings that have thicker bands and larger designs.
