The Claddagh symbolizes love (heart), friendship (hands), and loyalty (crown). The circular shape of the ring represents eternity.
Claddagh is the name of the small fishing village in Galway, where this unique symbol first originated over 400 years ago. In later centuries the ring became a fashionable token for friends and lovers to give each other.
