The perfect wedding present for the perfect couple, these Bride and Groom Flutes with a Silver Plated Pewter Claddagh design are as elegant as they are meaningful. Each flute has centered on it a beautiful silver-plated Claddagh design, Ireland’s preeminent symbol of everlasting love that dates back to the 17th century.
Legend has it that a Galway man was captured at sea and sold into slavery to a goldsmith, leaving his love behind for many years. Eventually, when he was able to escape and return to Ireland, he fashioned the first ever Claddagh ring out of shavings he had kept. The heart signifies love, the crown loyalty, and the hands represent friendship, three sides of eternal love.
