SOLD – Vintage Claddagh garnet ring
This traditional Irish ring is a true token of love. Often worn as an engagement ring or wedding ring because of the three symbols of love, loyalty and friendship represented by the heart, crown and hands. The design dates back to the 17th century!
Back in the days, you didn’t have social media to proclaim your relationship status. With this ring, much like Facebook, your relationship status can be updated easily. Here’s a short guide to avoid any awkward moments or give off mixed signals.
- Single: wear the ring on the right hand with the heart turned away from your body which means your heart is open to love.
- In a relationship: wear the ring on the right hand with the heart facing towards the hand.
- Engagement ring: wear the ring on the left hand with the heart pointing away from the hand.
- Wedding ring: wear the ring on the left hand with the heart pointing to the hand.
