A few things from Ireland that we absolutely love:
#1 The Claddagh Ring
Lots of people on our Irish side of the family wear the famous Claddagh ring. The ring’s design signifies hands of friendship cradling a heart of love, topped with a crown of loyalty. This lovely ring is a pre-facebook way to display your relationship status as follows:
Wear on the right hand with the heart facing outward meaning you’re “single”, heart facing inward to indicate you’re “in a relationship”. Wear the ring on your left hand, heart facing out to say “I’m engaged!”, heart facing inward to say “I’m off the market, and the deal is sealed”.
I am a very lucky girl to have a gorgeous wedding ring, but for work and days full of latex gloves I reach for my Claddagh. I love that my ring is from Ireland, what this ring signifies, and how it reminds me of the hubs. Thanks Sanders for the lovely ring, thanks Mum for picking it for us.
