The image of the hands clasping the heart under the crown is uniquely a Galway symbol. The Claddagh Ring representing love, loyalty and friendship was created by Richard Joyce hundreds of years ago. This symbol of Galway is known and cherished all over the world and is still handcrafted by the goldsmiths at Blacoe Jewellers in their workshop on Shop Street in the heart of Galway. This piece has a modern twist with a shamrock embedded into the crown and a diamond in the centre of the heart. Available in both 9ct Yellow Gold and 9ct White Gold.
