Our Mens Claddagh ring is most popularly worn as an engagement ring or a wedding ring. The Mens Claddagh ring can also be used as a friendship ring. The Claddagh Ring dates back to the 17th century. It is named after the ancient village of Claddagh near Galway Ireland. The ring was created by a man named Richard Joyce. This is why we decided to have a collection just for the Mens Claddagh Ring.
Richard was a fisherman from Claddagh. Spanish soldiers stole his boat and enslaved him for many years. He was made a slave for many years and then sold to a goldsmith. The goldsmith taught Richard the goldsmith trade and Richard, stole a piece of gold daily so that he could make a ring for his beloved Margaret.
Finally, he was able to make the Claddagh ring for Margaret. After all, she was the love of his life and desperately hoped to return to her and the village of Claddagh.
Richard eventually made it back to the village of Claddagh and presented Margaret with the Claddagh ring and the rest is history. I just love the history and especially this story. It is a story for the true romantics at heart. Much like the wearers of our Mens Claddagh rings.
