About this Piece
Shanore Ireland presents a brilliant sterling silver Celtic Claddagh pendant, adorned with sparkling white Swarovski® crystals. Resting gently between the joined hands of the Claddagh design is a solitary Swarovski® crystal amethyst.
The rich amethyst color is known to invoke healing properties and offer protection to the wearer. Amethyst's beautiful color is matched only by its incredible ability to inspire balance, creativity, and open communication. This February birthstone adds elegance to a classic Celtic symbol.
History of the Claddagh
The Claddagh (or Cladach, meaning 'the shore') features a crowned heart held by two hands - the heart represents love, the hands represent friendship, while the crown stands for loyalty. As far back as medieval times, engagement rings had been inscribed with clasped hands to signify one's fidelity, while the heart and crown were eventually added in the 18th century.
The Claddagh is named for the former fishing village that's now part of Galway city in the West of Ireland, where iconic Claddagh rings have since been produced for hundreds of years. Legend has it that in 1695, a local teenage silversmith called Richard Joyce became enslaved by Algerian pirates, and invented the Claddagh ring while in captivity.

I often buy goods from Aiden and has always given a first class service
My parents purchased the necklace and earrings while visiting Ireland from the US. I found the bracelet online and ordered it. It is beautiful. I am beyond thrilled with it. Arrived quickly to the US very nicely packaged. I would definitely buy from retailer again.
My wife loves the ring. Aidan was great to work with and was very responsive. I will definitely be shopping here in the future. Highly recommend
Just the perfect gift from Ireland!
