These drop earrings feature a Claddagh design, which is a symbol of love, loyalty, and friendship. Celtic craftsmen have been creating jewelry with the Claddagh symbol for centuries. Sterling Silver is a delicate yet powerful metal. It is versatile, malleable, but can also withstand a lot of wear and tear. These lovely earrings are made by Solvar Jewelry, which is a family-owned Irish company that has been crafting beautiful artisanal Irish jewelry in the heart of Dublin since 1941. These earrings would certainly make a very beautiful gift for a person that you truly love!
