Your Lady will look lovely in this Peridot or Blue Topaz Claddagh Ring! Made of Sterling Silver, the ring measures approx 12mm from base of heart to crown. Comes gift boxed. Made in Ireland. The Claddagh rings legend comes from a story about a fisherman Richard Joyce from a village called "Claddagh" on the west coast of Ireland. He was captured by pirates and sold into slavery to a Moorish goldsmith where we learnt the trade. Many years later when freed in 1670 he returned to "Claddagh", to marry his childhood sweetheart and started manufacturing Claddagh Rings. As Irish people started to travel the world, so the legend of Claddagh rings spread.
