Product Description

Claddagh Ring. Sizes 4-10. 

There are a couple of legends surrounding the origin of the Claddagh ring. One prominent legend that bears some historic truth is that of a man named Richard Joyce, a member of the Joyce clan and a native of Galway Ireland. Richard left his town to work in the West Indies, intending to marry his love when he returned. However, Richard's ship was captured and he was sold into slavery to a Moorish goldsmith. In Algiers, with his new master, Richard trained in his craft. When William III became king, he demanded the Moors release all British prisoners. As a result, Richard Joyce was set free. The goldsmith had such a great amount of respect for Richard that he offered him his daughter and half his wealth if he stayed. Richard denied the goldsmith's offer and returned home to marry his love who awaited his return. During his time with the Moors, Richard, then a slave, forged a ring as a symbol of his love back home. Upon his return, Richard presented her with the (Claddagh) ring and they were married. An Irish love story for the ages that inspires all of us today.
