For Valentine's Day, there's no gift more perfect than Ireland's most enduring symbol of love - the Claddagh ring. The Claddagh symbolizes not only love, but also the loyalty and friendship that bind the truest of loves.
The ring is made up of a heart in the center (representing love), a crown perched on top of the heart (for loyalty) and the ring band finishes with a pair of hands holding up the heart and crown (to symbolize friendship). Its story dates back to the small Galway fishing town of Claddagh in the 17th century and has been a symbol of love ever since.
