Gemstone Claddagh Ring, Rutilated Quartz

The meaning of the claddagh ring is embedded in its main features and what an amazing jewel it is. History tells us about priceless jewels that were acquired by plundering lands but, rarely do we hear about a jewel that was created purely out of love and loyalty. The essential features of a claddagh ring are the heart, hands and crown - basically there is no claddagh ring if any of these elements are missing. The heart symbolizes love, the hands signify friendship and the crown promises loyalty.

A humble fisherman named Robert Joyce from Ireland is credited with making the first claddagh ring. Young Robert was among a group of fishermen who were captured by pirates and sold as slaves. He was sold to a goldsmith and forced to learn the craft from his master. Robert Joyce tried to keep up his morale despite, being exposed to the depressing life of a slave. He longed to be reunited with his beloved who lived in the same fishing village. He made the ring hoping that its features would showcase his true feelings for her. He was released from slavery a few years later, he rushed back to his village. Ring in hand, Robert kept looking for his beloved - he was absolutely delighted to see that she had been patiently waiting for him for all those dark years. He gave her a ring and the couple were soon married and set up family in the village. Interestingly, the name of he village was 'Claddagh' and that is where the ring got its name from. The narration dates back to around 4 centuries, historians generally seem to agree that the story is true.
