  • Claddagh Symbol
    The Claddagh symbol of hands holding a heart, surmounted by a crown dates back more than 400 years and is generally associated with the fishing village of Claddagh in the west of Ireland, near Galway. There are many legends concerning the origin of the Claddagh symbol, but most agree that the hands symbolize friendship, the heart love and the crown loyalty. In the 17th century, rings with the Claddagh symbol became the fashionable exchange of friends or lovers, often becoming heirlooms passed down from mother to daughter.
  • Ring Sizing

    Rings need to fit well to be comfortable and to minimize the risk of loss from your finger. A jeweler has sized rings to help you determine your size. If you wish to measure your size in the comfort of your own home we can supply a set of plastic sized rings.

    Finger size changes with temperature - less blood flows to the hands when the hands are cold, so the fingers are then slimmer. Measure your fingers when your hands are at their usual temperature. The correct size allows the ring to just slip over the knuckle, not loosely but not so tightly that heroic efforts are required to remove it. Remember that people's left and right hands are usually not identical in size. It should be kept in mind that a wide ring will fit a little more tightly than a narrow ring of the same size.
