Love | Friendship | Loyalty
The unique characteristics of the Claddagh design are associated with the virtues of love (the heart), loyalty (the crown), and friendship (the hands). Originating in the ancient village of Claddagh near Galway, Ireland, this symbol represents the intentions of the heart. The Claddagh is traditionally worn on the right hand with the heart facing out as a sign that one is unattached and with the heart facing in to signify that the wearer is under love's spell. This symbol is only worn on the left hand if one is engaged or married. Wear the Claddagh Charm to draw in your heart's desires. Each charm hangs from Alex and Ani's patented Expandable Wire Bangle and is available in a Rafaelian Gold Finish and a Rafaelian Silver Finish finish.
