This Sterling Silver Ring features a Claddagh where the heart is comprised of a Synthetic Amethyst for February. Ring measures approximately 3/8" from the base of the heart to the top of the crown. This ring is made in Ireland and stamped at Dublin Castle, and comes in a ring box for gift giving. Legend has it that the Claddagh symbol was originated by Richard Joyce, a Galway seafarer kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery in North Africa where he learned the art of a goldsmith. Upon his return to his beloved Galway Joyce created the Claddagh ring. Claddagh rings are still worn as friendship, engagement or wedding rings in Ireland.
