The Claddagh symbol is one that can be traced back through Irish history. Although Claddagh rings are the most popular way to wear this symbol, it can be found in necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. The heart symbolizes the undying love shared between two people, the crown stands for loyalty and the hands mean friendship. Besides the symbols of the design the way in which a person wears the ring has meaning as well specifically the hand it is worn on and the direction in which the crown part of the ring points. For those who are married or engaged the ring is worn on the left hand, just like a wedding band, with the crown facing away from the heart for those who are open to being in a relationship the ring is worn on the right hand with the crown pointing away from the heart and for those who simply are not interested in any type of relationship, the right is still worn on the right hand but with the crown pointing toward the heart. The Irish Claddagh ring is the most popular engagement and wedding ring worn in Ireland. The consumer can find the Claddagh rings in just about any jewelry store from the mall to the high end store.
