Handcrafted in Ireland, these gorgeous Rhodium Claddagh Drop Earrings are crafted from a high quality base metal and plated in durable and elegant rhodium, shined to reflective perfection. Whether you are buying them for yourself or for a friend, loved one, or family member, these earrings are the perfect accessory to show off a love of Ireland.
The Claddagh is one of the most meaningful symbols to have originated in the country, representing love, loyalty, and friendship with its heart, crown, and hands. Legend has it that a 16th century Irish mariner from the Claddagh region of County Galway had to leave the love of his life to go to sea and was captured, spending years away with no way to send word. When he returned, he fashioned the first ever Claddagh ring, named for his home, for his lost love as a symbol of his undying devotion and affection.
The perimeter of the Claddagh ring drops is inlaid with beautiful clear crystals to give a little extra sparkle. The earrings are handcrafted in Ireland by Solvar Jewelry, based in Dublin since 1941.
Dimensions: 15mm x 15mm.
