The gorgeous blue of the light sapphire crystals from Swarovski give these earrings an eye-catching design. Beneath the Swarovski crystals is the traditional Claddagh symbol of a heart with a crown being tenderly held by two hands crafted out of sterling silver. The vibrant blue of the color sapphire is steeped with meaning and association. Reminiscent of both the sky and the ocean it is a stable color that is both calming and soothing to the body and spirit. Blue represents intelligence confidence and stands for loyalty in much the same way that the Claddagh symbol does. The crown that adorns the heart in the symbol also stands for loyalty while the heart and hands indicate love and friendship respectively. Worn alone or together with the matching Claddagh pendant embellished with Swarovski Crystals available from Shanore this dazzling design adds a bit of color and playfulness to your day. The earrings stand out beautifully when worn with a solid color top and the blue plays up well when matched with a colorful ensemble.
