The Claddagh ring is a very popular engagement and wedding ring in Ireland. The symbol of two hands holding a heart and crowned by a crown stands for friendship, love and loyalty. This romantic symbol is meant for a very special person.
Depending on how the ring is worn, it has different meanings. When the Claddagh ring is placed on the left hand and the heart points in the direction of the wearer, the heart has already been forgiven and has arrived safely in the marriage port. If you are engaged, you wear the ring on your right hand with the heart facing the wearer. If you are looking for the right one, wear the ring on the right hand but with the heart pointing upwards. Even today the Claddagh ring is traditionally passed on from mother to daughter.
