Claddagh Necklace, Celtic Jewelry, Mother's Day, Irish Dance Gift, Friendship Gift, Anniversary Gift, Graduation Gift, Ireland Jewelry

$59.00


A beautiful design that combines the Celtic weave with the classic Claddagh. Sterling Silver with 18" sterling silver chain.

The Claddagh (Irish: fáinne Chladaigh) is a traditional Irish symbol which represents love, loyalty, and friendship (the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty).

Legend has it that a hardworking young man from the village of Claddagh in Galway, by the name of Richard Joyce, was kidnapped while fishing at sea by some Mediterranean pirates. He was sold into slavery to a Moorish goldsmith in North Africa. During his many years working with his Moorish Master he learned the craft of goldsmithing and became an accomplished artisan. He designed the Claddagh ring for the sweetheart he had left behind in Ireland, and who he longed to return to. He designed the crown as a symbol of his loyalty to her, the heart as a symbol of his love for her, and the hands holding the heart as a symbol of his everlasting friendship for her. When he was eventually freed and was able to return to Ireland he found his sweetheart had waited for him all the years of his absence. They were soon married and never separated again!

This item comes with a sterling silver chain as described. However, if you require a longer or shorter chain size or desire a different chain style, please contact me. Chain sizes are 16", 18", 20", 22" and 24" - all solid sterling silver. Any pendant can also be put onto a 30" black leather cord that can be worn long or doubled up as a choker.
