Delicate Claddagh ring for ladies, high quality made of white gold with green stones. A beautiful piece of jewellery from Ireland with a long history, as the Claddagh ring has been known as a marriage and engagement ring on the Emerald Isle since the 16th century.
The heart symbolises eternal love. The crown Loyalty and the two hands holding the heart in its centre stand for friendship and kinship.
The Claddagh ring was made by an Irish fisherman. Fisherman? Yes, because the poor man was captured by Algerian pirates while fishing. They sold him into slavery and he ended up with an Arab goldsmith. He learned his trade and soon the former fisherman was an expert in his field. With his masterpiece, the Claddagh Ring, he regained his freedom and he could sail home. There he married his great love and proposed to her, which he had made in the far distance.
