The Rhodium Connemara Marble Claddagh Pendant from Solvar is a wonderful and significant gift for any occasion. The pendant is made from a highly-durable base metal and plated with beautiful rhodium for a bright silver shine. The central heart is inset with a piece of genuine Connemara marble, known as “Ireland’s gemstone” for its rich green beauty.
The Claddagn ring design itself is thought to date at least as far back as the 16th century. One legend says that a mariner from the Claddagh region of County Galway was captured, leaving a lost love behind. He was sold into slavery to a goldsmith, and, upon being released by royal decree some years later, returned to Galway and fashioned the first Claddagh ring for his love. The hands symbolize friendship, the heart signifies love, and the crown represents unequivocal loyalty.
