“Hearts are not to be had as a gift, hearts are to be earned.”
– William Butler Yeats
I know what you’re thinking… Why is SuperJeweler talking about Claddagh rings in February? This is Valentine season not St. Patrick’s Day. Ah, but wait, because while they’re definitely a symbol of Irish pride, Claddagh rings also represent the very best of romance.
The history and origin of Claddagh rings:
Beginning in the mid-thirteenth century, The Tribes of Galway (Treibheanna na Gaillimhe) consisted of several prominent Catholic merchant families from the region of and surrounding Galway in Western Ireland. The families of Athy, Blake, Bodkin, Browne, D’Arcy, Font, French, Joyce, Kirwin, Lynch, Martin, Morris, and Skerrett dominated the financial, political, and social landscape of the region right up to the Irish Rebellion of 1641. Having supported the Confederate Catholics of Ireland, the families faced punishment for their rejection of British rule after Cromwell’s invasion of Ireland in 1649.
The details of his circumstances are fuzzy. It would seem, however, due to this familial fall from grace, Richard Joyce, found himself an indentured servant bound for the West Indies in 1675 – a voyage that would take the ship around the then-treacherous northern coast of Africa.
Spanning the 16th to 19th centuries, a group of privateers called the Barbary pirates or the Ottoman corsairs operated out of ports in Rabat, Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli. Tales of these pirates and the fear they induced in Europe during this period have been chronicled in such classics as Robinson Crusoe [Daniel Defoe], The Count of Monte Cristo [Alexander Dumas], and the captive’s tale in Don Quixote [Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra].
The group, which in turns was supported by various European nations for carrying out attacks against their enemies, seized ships and goods in addition to the raiding of coastal towns in Europe and as far away as Iceland. It’s primary purpose, though, was the capture of Christians to be used as slaves for the Ottoman Empire. Those lucky enough to have family wealth or the community status to raise funds for ransom would be returned home – those who could not provide money for release were sold into slavery in a variety of trades.
Such was the fate that awaited Richard Joyce as he journeyed to the West Indies in the mid 1660’s. The ship he was aboard was intercepted by pirates, and Joyce was taken captive. Unable to raise the money required for his release, he was sold at auction. Purchased by a goldsmith in the city of Tangiers in northern Morocco, he was made an apprentice and spent the next fourteen years of his life in servitude learning the goldsmith trade.
In 1689, upon the growing strength of the British navy, King William III of England was able to demand the release of all British subjects captured by the Algerians who were being held as slaves. Joyce’s master is supposed to have offered him half of the business and his daughter’s hand in marriage if he would agree to remain in Tangiers. The offer was declined and Joyce chose to return to Galway.
According to legend, he arrived home with the Claddagh ring he designed and crafted while in captivity – giving it to the sweetheart he left behind as an engagement ring. Using the trade he learned during his time in Morocco, Richard Joyce became a successful goldsmith in his own right in his native Ireland.
The uses and symbolism of Claddagh rings:
Inspired by “fede” or fealty rings dating back to ancient Rome; Joyce supposedly designed the ring to represent the combined concepts of loyalty, friendship, and love.
During the ornate Victorian period, these rings surged in popularity, not only in Ireland, but in the rest of the UK, the United States, and Canada. Claddagh rings have been gifted as engagement rings, wedding bands, friendship rings, and heirlooms passed from mother to daughter.
Over the years, Claddagh rings have developed a storied symbolism that varies from region to region. One of the most popular is the meaning indicated by the way in which the ring is worn. If the Claddagh ring is worn on the right hand, crown down, the individual is single and in search of love; crown up he or she is taken. On the left hand the crown down symbolizes engagement, while the crown up indicates marriage.
Of course, this is only one use for the Claddagh ring. It’s also associated with the Irish motto, “Let love and friendship reign,” and is often given as a sign of trust and loyalty from friend to friend.

Claddagh rings are a great change up from the regular ring. I think it has a much deeper meaning then that of a regular ring/piece of jewelry. Not only are you giving a symbol of your love but you are giving deep loyalty and friendship forever. It can’t get better than that.
I Love rings and have lots of different styles, but don’t have anything like this, so I hope to win it!

I love these rings, the symbolism and tradition. The emerald and ruby are wonderful together as well.
I would love to be able to give one of these beautiful rings to my wife for Valentine’s Day if I could afford it. The last piece of jewelry I gave her was her engagement ring and she had to help me pay for it. We have been married for 17 years and been struggling financially so a gesture like this ring of my love for her through all that we have gone through would be so wonderful.

These rings are unique – just like every relationship out there. I would be honoured to own one.
Very interesting! Personally, I would change the Ruby to a Garnet.
The crazy thing is 26 years ago I met my wife and since she doesn’t care for diamonds, I sat down and drew on a piece of paper her engagement ring that I took to a jeweler and had made. It was two hearts, linked together and our birthstones in each heart. Emerald for me and Garnet for her. I always thought there were forces at work and this is yet another thing that add to that theory!
interesting history and a very beautiful ring…emerald is my birthstone…the 2 stones are so lovely together
Pretty I like it
It’s amazing and not just for valentines it’s an heirloom piece that I would leave to my dsughter. 🙂
I LOVE this ring! My Father was Irish and the stones in this one happen to be each of my son’s birthstones! It would be the perfect family memory ring for me!

I love the history behind these rings and it would be something different to wear every day. Would love to win this!
This would be the perfect gift for my daughter
the ring is very beautiful the history was very interesting just reading it here on your blog I learned alot thank you for a chance
I was born on February 28th 1957 I was born on Brother birthday he is 4years older then myself. When my mom and dad told him what he got for his birthday, he said take her back I don’t want her. Now we are the best of friends. So when I say a claddagh ring is special to me that would be the best reason why.
This is so brilliant in colour and classy! Would love to win!
This would be a treasured keepsake of my Irish ancestry and would be passed down in our family as an heirloom.
Not everyone gets a gift like this bought for them or given to them. Sometime every penny they make has to pay bills and buy food. It is a beautiful ring and I am sure whomever wins will love it…thank you…
Between the crown and the hands they create a perfect heart shape. #beautiful #claddagh rings
I think the claddagh rings are a wonderful idea for Valentine’s Day. I especially love that you can get a split heart, that way you can have two birthstones making two halves of a whole. Now if only my husband and I weren’t both August babies. Haha.
This is such a beautiful ring, growth and love together.
Absolutely beautiful. Would love to receive this on Valentine’s day!
Very unique and pretty!
Very beautiful! I really love Claddagh rings but have never had one of my own. The double stones are pretty and a nice way to put a personal touch on it. And the one being given away has my birthstone beside my anniversary month’s.
Receiving a Claddagh ring for Valentine’s Day would delight my heart and soul! It’s a very giving, sharing, loyal and loving kind of romantic gift that would be worn often; and, the circumstances of receipt would be reminisced about as well!
This ring is Beautiful! The story of the rings origin is a remarkable story.
Thanks for sharing the history and I would love to win! thanks
Gorgeous Thanks for the chance 🙂 ❤️
It’s a beautiful contrast of bright vibrant colors pairs with precious metal band. Thank you for the opportunity.
I think Claddagh rings for Valentine’s Day is a lovely idea, these rings are unique & beatiful!
Thanks for sharing the story behind the ring, which really makes it a perfect gift of love.
I love the Claddagh ring. It is unique and beautiful and has a story behind it. My dad’s side of the family was Irish so I would love to have one. Thanks for the chance.
Fascinating! Thanks for the wonderful article.
