The Claddagh design as it exists today originated in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh in County Galway in the 17th century. Originally, the design appeared on rings which were used for wedding engagements, close friendships, and daughters coming of age. Prior to the 1600s, many myths and legends surround the history of the Claddagh and its origins. However, iterations of the design have been dated back to ancient Rome, where the clasping hands were commonly used to illustrate the pledging of vows. As use of the symbol grew in popularity throughout Ireland and the world, the Claddagh began to make its way onto other fine pieces of jewelry, such as pendants and bracelets. Today, we are extremely excited to offer this special pendant that bears so much of Ireland’s history and symbolism. We are confident this piece will become a newfound favorite to that special someone, or perhaps even yourself!
