About the Claddagh

In the 1600’s in a fishing village in Galway called The Claddagh, a local Goldsmith created this now-famous ring. Legend has it that Richard Joyce became enslaved by Algerian pirates and was sold to a goldsmith. He created the Claddagh ring while in captivity and when he was liberated, it was a chance to bring this lovely design to the world. It is now a beloved symbol of Ireland, known worldwide. The intricate design is a crowned heart held by two hands. The heart represents love and the hands represent friendship, while the crown stands for loyalty.
