History of the Claddagh

The Claddagh is typically presented to someone as a token of love or friendship.  The history of the Claddagh dates back about 300 years to the small fishing village of Claddagh in Ireland.  The term, “cladach” means “flat, stony shore.”  There are many legends as to the origination of the Claddagh.  One legendtells of a Prince who fell in love with a common maid. To convince her father his feelings were genuine and he had no intentions of "using" the girl, he designed a ring with hands representing friendship, a crown representing loyalty, and a heart representing love. He proposed to the maid with this ring, and after the father heard the explanation of the symbolism of the ring, he gave his blessing.  Another is that of Richard Joyce of Galway was captured in the West Indies and sold to a Moorish goldsmith. He learned the craft and forged a ring for his love waiting in Ireland.  Upon his being set free, he returned to Ireland, presented her the ring, and they were married.
