The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish symbol of friendship, love and loyalty. Culturally, the hands represent friendship, the crown stands for loyalty and the heart is for love. The custom of giving this rings as a gift started during the 17th century in a village name Claddagh (now part of Galway city). Although this customary gifting began in Ireland, the joined hands design has been around since the Roman empire. These "fede rings" or "faith rings" are a gesture of union and keeping vows. The fede rings are commonly shown as two hands coming together.
