Ask anyone in Ireland, and they will be able to explain the Claddagh symbol, and probably have a story to share about it too. It is a classical symbol in Celtic history and culture whose meaning is known to almost all who have seen in. The delicate hands hold within them a solid heart, adorned with a shimmering crown. The three-part symbol is placed upon a gorgeous sterling silver bead encrusted by a Swarovski crystal border. Reining Above All The Claddagh has triple meaning in Celtic history. The hands represent friendship while the heart shows love, and closely watching over each is the crown of loyalty. Perhaps the most important of the three. Because, without loyalty one cannot truly achieve friendship or love. It is one of life's most high virtues and through this jewelry piece, you can show those you love it is also one of yours. Careful Creations The jewelers at Tara's Diary and Origin Collection put a lot of attention and consideration into the making of each and every single bead. The curves, edges and writing you see here were all designed and produced by skilled artists. Wear the bead alone as a shining individual or pair with any of the numerous beads by Tara's Diary Origin bracelet to make a truly unique collection.
