Exchanged as a token of love and affection in the form of jewelry, the Claddagh symbol originated in the tiny village of Claddagh in County Galway, Ireland. Legend has it that an Irish silversmith had been kidnapped and enslaved by pirates, finally returning home to his beloved village of Claddagh after many years. He formed this now famous symbol into a ring and gave it to his love, who had waited patiently for his return. With it he spoke these heartfelt words: "With these hands, I give you my heart and crown it with my love"
This uniquely Irish symbol of LOVE, expressed with a heart, FRIENDSHIP, expressed with two hands and LOYALTY, expressed with a crown, makes a beautiful and thoughtful gift for one you love.
