Meaning of the Crystal Claddagh Ring
The Claddagh Ring has a vivid past. It originated from a small fishing village named Claddagh, near Galway in Ireland. The legend says Corsairs captured Richard Joyce at sea. They sold him into slavery to Moors. He learned how to make it while working for a goldsmith in captivity. He worked in that capacity for 14 years before an ambassador freed him. After that, he returned to Claddagh. The legend says that the hands represent friendship. The heart represents love. Finally, the crown represents loyalty.

The original Claddagh Ring was likely plain, with no crystals. Since then, many people created many different versions that include gems, crystals and diamonds. We have a version with no crystals available here.
