Hand polished is the metal of choice for this timeless European design. An impressive high polish finish creates a gorgeous glow that is sure to put a smile on your face. The Claddagh design dates back to Roman times, when clasped hands were a gesture that symbolized pledging vows. More recently, the Claddagh has become a traditional Irish design, symbolizing friendship as well as being used as engagement and wedding rings. Our rings are proudly handcrafted in our California factory.
