The slender curves of this sterling silver Claddagh pendant give it a graceful appeal. Careful texture in the cuffs and crown make the classic love symbol stand out. And yet, the design also includes delicate CZ diamonds and emeralds to embellish one side of the heart. A charming twist on an old favorite.
The Essence of the Claddagh...
The Claddagh is named for a small fishing village near Galway Bay. It’s told that a 17th-century resident of this village, Richard Joyce, was kidnapped on his way to the Irish slave plantations in the West Indies to work. He was sold to a Moorish goldsmith, to whom he became an apprentice. When Joyce was finally released from captivity, he returned to Galway to find his once true love waiting for him. As a sign of his commitment to her, he gave her what is now known as the first Claddagh wedding ring. The hands represent friendship; the heart, love; and the crown, loyalty.
