Claddagh Wedding Rings

For over 400 years, the Claddagh wedding band has been worn as the traditional Irish wedding ring in the West of Ireland. In this time, the Claddagh has become known far and wide as the Irish symbol for ‘love, friendship and loyalty.’

History of the Irish Wedding Ring

Claddagh is a small fishing village near Galway in the West of Ireland. The story of this Irish wedding ring is as fascinating as the symbols on the ring. The original Claddagh ring was the center of a great love story. The legend is that Richard Joyce, who hailed from Galway, was to be married the week that his ship was captured by pirates. While in captivity, it is said that he handcrafted a ring for his betrothed. In 1689, he was finally released. He then returned to the town of Claddagh and gifted her with the wedding ring he had crafted. She, too, had longed for him, and they were soon married – complete with Claddagh rings as part of their simple ceremony. This story shows the power of enduring love, friendship, and loyalty in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges.
