Details

Skilled craftspeople working in a family-run studio in Dublin create this petite sterling silver locket by hand. The claddagh--a pair of hands holding a crowned heart--is a symbol of love, loyalty, and friendship that dates back to 16th-century County Galway.

One of the most popular symbols of Ireland and Irish culture is the claddagh, two hands clasping a crowned heart. The motif is often found on wedding rings and symbolizes love, friendship, and loyalty. Legends about the claddagh’s origins abound, from its being given by an eagle to a charitable 16th century lady in Galway to its being designed by 17th-century Galway native Richard Joyce while he was enslaved by a goldsmith in Algiers. When he was finally freed and able to return home, he gave the ring to his fiancée who had awaited his return.

"Just right for a young lady"

This is a special gift for a young girl or woman. The heart is lovely and just the right size. I think the chain could be a little heavier though, especially if the person you give it to is active. Otherwise it is a special gift meant to last.
