This lovely Claddagh pendant necklace measures approximately 1" tall by 3/4" wide and comes on an 18" gold plated chain. This necklace was made in Ireland by Solvar and comes in a gift box.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. When he was released, nothing could keep him from his beloved Galway where he returned to become a master goldsmith and where he created the Claddagh ring. For centuries this was used as a wedding ring by the fisher folk of Claddagh village, which nestled outside the walls of Galway city in the west of Ireland. Claddagh rings are still worn as friendship, engagement or wedding rings depending on how they are worn.
