The Claddagh ring (Irish: fáinne Chladaigh) is a traditional Irish ring given which represents love, loyalty, and friendship (the hands represent friendship; the heart represents love; and the crown represents loyalty). The design and customs associated with it originated in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh, located just outside the old city walls of Galway, now part of Galway City. The ring, as currently known, was first produced in the 17th century. In this article, I will show you some of the men’s claddagh ring.
The first of the men’s claddagh ring on our list is Men’s Onyx Claddagh Ring in 10K Gold with Diamond Accents. This men’s 10K gold claddagh ring features an onyx gemstone accented by three round diamonds in a 4-prong setting. The heart symbolizes love, the hands stand for friendship and crown is for loyalty. Depending on how the ring is worn the meaning is altered. If worn on the right hand with the heart pointing inwards, it means the person is spoken for, but if worn outwards it’s means the person is single. When worn on the left hand with the heart pointing inwards, this tells others you’ve found true love.
Claddagh rings are the traditional Irish token of love. The distinctive design features two hands grasping a crowned heart, symbolizing love, friendship and loyalty let love and friendship reign forever. The Claddagh ring belongs to a group of European finger rings called “fede rings”. These rings date from Roman times, when the gesture of clasped hands was a symbol of pledging vows, and they were used as engagement/wedding rings in medieval and Renaissance Europe. Fede rings are cast in the form of two clasped hands, symbolizing faith, trust, or “plighted troth”. The Men’s Claddagh ring is a variation on the fede ring, while the hands, heart, and crown motif was used by the men in England in the early 18th century.
