The Irish claddagh, dating back to 16th-century County Galway, is a pair of clasped hands holding a crowned heart that symbolizes love, friendship, and loyalty. Here the claddagh is stamped into a sterling silver circle, symbolic of everlasting life, and paired with beautifully faceted kelly green Swarovski crystal briolettes. The sentiment is at once universal and uniquely Irish. The necklace also features the words ''love,'' ''friendship,'' and ''loyalty.''

  • Approximately 1 1/2''L.
  • Made in Ireland.

One of the most popular symbols of Ireland and Irish culture is the claddagh, two hands clasping a crowned heart. The motif is often found on wedding rings and symbolizes love, friendship, and loyalty. Legends about the claddagh's origins abound, from its being given by an eagle to a charitable 16th century lady in Galway to its being designed by 17th-century Galway native Richard Joyce while he was enslaved by a goldsmith in Algiers. When he was finally freed and able to return home, he gave the ring to his fiancée who had awaited his return.


According to authors Colin Murphy and Donal O'Dea:

The way that a claddagh ring is worn on the hand is usually intended to convey the wearer's romantic availability, or lack thereof. Traditionally, if the ring is on the right hand with the heart facing outward and away from the body, this indicates that the person wearing the ring is not in any serious relationship, and may in fact be single and looking for a relationship: "their heart is open." When worn on the right hand but with the heart facing inward toward the body, this indicates the person wearing the ring is in a relationship, although not yet married. A claddagh worn on the left hand ring finger, facing outward away from the body, generally indicates that the wearer is engaged. When the ring is on the left hand ring finger and facing inward toward the body, it generally means that the person wearing the ring is married.

    Charleston, South Carolina, is a veritable outdoor ironwork museum, with its pedestrian-friendly streets and a tradition of cast-iron and wrought-iron gates, fences, and balconies that date back to the early 18th century. British styles were the earliest to take hold in the city, but a local style soon evolved and gained national attention, with elements that were influenced by German ironworkers and the neoclassical design that was popular in architecture of the 19th century.

    (Based on 9 reviews)
    Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters
    This hearty forest green cardigan takes its inspiration from military-style Irish sweaters, often worn by volunteers who fought with the British in WWII. Although Ireland was neutral and relations with Britain were strained, thousands of men and women chose to join the Allied cause as members of the British Royal Army and Merchant Navy, or by working in British factories. Our contemporary version uses rich leather to enhance frequent wear points, ensuring years of rugged outdoor wear. Leather shoulders help keep expedition gear and luggage straps from slipping off. Front slash pockets add functionality and make this sweater an alternative to a jacket on milder winter days. Pure Irish wool, knit in Ireland.

    For hundreds of years, women in the rural villages of the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland have knit natural wool sweaters for their fisherman kin. Although the myth that you can identify island families by the stiches in their sweater—like a Scottish tartan—isn't true, every knitter does have her own special patterns, passed down through generations of mothers and grandmothers. At weekly gatherings, they continually invented intricate new stitches.

The Golden Horn is the name of an approximately 4-mile-long inlet whose harbor has sheltered boats for thousands of years, through four powerful empires. Its picturesque views have inspired painters, poets, and photographers—Leonardo da Vinci even designed a bridge for it in 1502.
