Claddagh Rings

THE STORY OF THE CLADDAGH

Inspired by history, created by craftsmen, forged in precious metal, Blacoe Jewellers are proud to present their range of exceptional Claddagh Jewellery from the home of the Claddagh in Galway, Ireland.

The Story of the Claddagh, a symbol loved and cherished all over the world, goes back over three hundred years ago to a man named Richard Joyce lived in the little fishing village of the Claddagh on the outskirts of Galway City. Legend tells that Joyce was captured by pirates and sold into slavery in Algiers.

His master, a Turk, was a wealthy goldsmith and from him Joyce learned the art of crafting jewellery. Eventually, Joyce earned his freedom and was allowed to return home to his native village, the Claddagh. It was here that Joyce first created the Claddagh ring. He designed the heart to represent love, the crown to represent loyalty and the hands to represent friendship.

Traditionally, the ring was used as an engagement ring by the women of the village and then as a wedding ring. It was also a tradition that the ring was passed on from a mother to her daughter. Hundreds of years later, the ring is still given as a symbol of love and friendship. Today, if you wear the ring on your right hand with the heart turned inwards, it shows that love is being considered. But when worn on the left hand with the heart turned inwards, it proves that your heart has found true love forever. A ring worn on the right hand, with the heart outward usually conveys that the person wearing the ring is not in any serious relationship.
