What's the Meaning of the Claddagh Ring?

We are often asked about the meaning of the Irish Claddagh symbol and how the Claddagh ring should be worn. The traditional Irish Claddagh represents love, loyalty and friendship. The heart is for love, the crown is for loyalty and the hands are for friendship.

How do you wear your Irish Claddagh ring? Well, that depends on the message you would like to send! Wearing your ring on your right hand with the heart pointing out indicates that you are single. Wearing it on your right hand with the heart pointing in means that you are in a relationship (dating, but not committed). Wearing the ring on your left hand with the heart pointing in says that you have found true love and are in a committed relationship.

"Alexa really does pay the highest price around. My family and I were in the process of liquidating my mother's jewelry collection and didn't know where to go. We saw the sign outside Donegal Jewelers saying that they bought gold so we stopped in. Alexa gave us a price while we waited. We didn't sell right away because we wanted to make sure we were getting the most we for what we had. After taking our jewelry to several other jewelers and Cash for Gold places we went back to Alexa. She offered us the most money and we felt comfortable with her. I highly recommend Donegal Jewelers." - Angela
