Celtic Knot braids and the Irish Claddagh come together in a charming, inspiring design in this necklace. A gleaming circlet of sterling silver features an arch of Celtic Knots reminiscent of flowing sea waves that link two majestically gloved hands. These two hands reach towards each other in the union of friendship and grasp a golden heart symbolizing love. On top of the heart is a splendid crown that signifies the loyalty that must be present in every loving, long-lasting friendship.
The Claddagh emblem has been a proud icon of Ireland since the 17th century. One legend claims that a man named Richard Joyce crafted the first Claddagh ring in Galway, Ireland. He made it as a token of gratitude to his lady who faithfully waited for his return after he was kidnapped and enslaved in Tangiers for several years. The Claddaghs message of love, loyalty, and friendship is the perfect complement to the Celtic Knot patterns signification of eternal love in this necklace.
This necklace makes a lovely gift set with the matching Celtic wave Claddagh earrings. Give this gift set to a special lady in your life who has been a source of loving, loyal support.
