Claddagh Ring

The Claddagh Irish ring is a traditional ring which represents love, loyalty, and friendship – the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty. We offer a wide selection of Irish Claddagh rings on our online store including Yellow gold, White gold, Platinum or Silver, and all are handmade in our workshop in Dublin, Ireland.

The Story Behind the Irish Claddagh Ring

The design and customs associated with the Claddagh ring originates in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh, located just outside Galway city. The ring, as currently known, was first produced in the 17th century and is most widely credited to a young Irishman named Richard Joyce, a native of Claddagh.

According to legend, on a ship bound for the West Indies plantations, Joyce and his fellow shipmates were captured by Algerian pirates and brought to the African country. Joyce was sold to a Moorish goldsmith who trained the young man in the craft. After some time, the master was won over by the Irishman's charm and craftsmanship and offered Joyce half his wealth and the hand of his only daughter in marriage. However, Joyce declined as his heart belonged in Ireland. Upon returning to his native Claddagh, Joyce gave a ring to his sweetheart. They married and Joyce set up a goldsmith shop from where the first Irish Claddagh Rings, bearing his inscription RI (the initial letters of Richard), were produced.

How to Wear Your Irish Ring – Claddagh

How you wear your Claddagh Irish ring can signify many different things. A ring worn on the right hand with the heart turned outwards is thought to signify that your heart has not yet been won. The ring worn on the right hand with the heart turned inwards means that the wearer has found someone to give their heart to. Finally, the ring worn on the left hand with the heart turned inwards signals the wearer is bound forever to their true love.
