The tradition of the Claddagh ring goes something like this, long ago in Ireland a man was captured in the fishing village of Claddagh. He was sold into slavery. Many years passed as he pined away wondering if his true love would wait for him knowing in her heart he would return to her. The love and image of his true one lingered in his heart, mind and soul. Through out those years of slavery he stole tiny bits of gold from his master making his true love a ring. He imagined over and over the day he would lay eyes on her again, giving her his token of love never being separated again.

The Claddagh Ring History

His broken heart ached for her and so he fashioned a heart for love, a crown for loyalty and hands as a symbol of friendship. The ring included everything they shared and the hope they would one day share these experiences together again. After many years of slavery he finally returned home to Claddagh. Once he made it home he was over joyed to discover his true love had waited for him. He gave her the ring as a symbol of their undying love, loyalty and friendship, now forever known as the Claddagh ring. Do you have someone in your life you wish to pledge your love, loyalty and friendship to forever? If so the Claddagh ring is a blessed symbol of your love they are sure to cherish as they will your love.

I'd like to introduce you to fellow trusted Wizzley writer and my friend Jo Harringtion.  Jo has written a fantastic article on Irish Claddagh rings.  You can find her work on this beautiful tradition below.  

Jo's article is different than mine as it's about Irish Claddagh Rings: A Love Token for your Gaelic Man 

This ring truly can be given to anyone from anyone if given for the reasons the ring was originally created.

Thanks Jo for this great piece on giving your man a Claddagh ring.  :)K

Originating from Galway, in Ireland, Claddagh rings were historically worn by men. They were clues towards love and friendship (and politics).

Thank you so much for sharing. This is a wonderful article. I knew the ring meant love, friendship and tradition, but I didn't know the meaning behind it.

There are legends and there are histories. They both add to the color and charm of this ring.

2uesday, thanks for sharing your lovely Claddagh ring story.

I knew a lady who had a Claddagh ring that she treasured as it was given to her by her husband for a special wedding anniversary. It is an easy style to wear, alone or with other jewelry unlike some rings.

The Alexandrite Gem Claddagh is my favorite too. Love the color. Thanks for the back story on the Claddagh rings tradition, I told the one I was told growing up as a kid, but since have heard many others. Regardless it is a great story and an even better tradition. :)K

Thank you so much for bigging me up here! {{{{{hugs}}}} While historically, Claddagh were for men, that's not true today. Men and women alike wear these beautiful rings. I'm female and I've personally got my eye on the Alexandrite Gem Claddagh that you have high-lighted here. Want and covet! It's gorgeous!
