So my godmother recently gave me some money to buy myself something for my 21st last year and I definitely wanted to use it for something special. I fell in love with the design of this ring but after Ed told me more about it, it literally couldn’t be more perfect!
It’s called a ‘Claddagh’ ring, traditionally Irish (my godmother’s descent), and is a token of love/ friendship.
It’s location and position on your hands and fingers mean a whole variety of things as well, which is neat! Wiki’s definition is;
- On the right hand with the point of the heart toward the fingertips, the wearer is single and may be looking for love. (This is most commonly the case when a young woman has first received the ring from a relative, unless she is already engaged).
- On the right hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist, the wearer is in a relationship, or their heart has been “captured”.
- On the left hand with the point of the heart toward the fingertips, the wearer is engaged.
- On the left hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist, the wearer is married.
How awesome is that! There are so many more stories behind the ring and I am now going to return to wikipedia to read the rest ^_^
