Legend has it that whoever wears the Claddagh becomes part of its history. The design on this sterling silver pendant echoes the words of the Irish sailor who first crafted it for his sweetheart “With these hands I give you my heart, and I crown it with my love”. Its symbols represent love (heart), friendship (hands) and loyalty (crown). This small but heavy sterling silver claddagh pendant has been hallmarked in Dublin Castle.
