Tradditional Marcasite Claddagh Ring
Sterling Silver with Marcasite
Made in Ireland
Legend has it that the Claddagh symbol was originated by Ricard Joyce, a Galway seafarer kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery in North Africa where he learned the art of a goldsmith. When he was released, nothing could keep him from his beloved Galway where he returned to become a master goldsmith and where he created the Claddagh ring. For centuries this was used as a wedding ring by fisher folk of Claddagh village, which nestled outside the walls of Galway city in the west of Ireland. Claddagh rings are worn as friendship, engagement, or wedding rings depending on how they are worn.
