Baby Claddagh Ring - Sterling Silver.
This is our smallest Claddagh that was designed for babies. It is a miniature version of the Women's Claddagh, but it is available up to a size 9 for those who like the petite size.
This ring is beautiful in its simplicity. It measures just under 5/16" from the base of the heart to the top of the crown. This ring is made in Ireland and stamped at Dublin Castle. Comes in a lovely ring box for gift giving. Legend has it that the Claddagh symbol was originated by Richard Joyce, a Galway seafarer kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery where he learned the art of a goldsmith. When he was released, nothing could keep him from his beloved Galway where he returned to become a master goldsmith and created the Claddagh ring.
For centuries this item was used as a wedding ring by the fisher folk of Claddagh village, which nestled outside the walls of Galway City in the west of Ireland. Claddagh rings are still worn as friendship, engagement or wedding rings depending on how they are worn.
