The Claddagh's distinctive design features two hands clasping a heart, and usually surmounted by a crown. The elements of this symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown).
This Irish symbol first appeared in the 17th century as a ring and has been a part of Irish and the modern Celtic cultural resurgence. Now we present the symbol as a set of lovely earrings cast in 925 sterling silver and accompanied with the traditional and ancient Celtic triquetra knot.
Each claddagh emblem measures .75 inch in diameter. This item will be shipped in a gift box, perfect for surprising that special someone.
