The Claddagh ring is so familiar as an Irish Symbol that many people just call it "The Irish Ring".
While it was originally designed as a wedding ring, in the more than 400 years since then, the meaning has evolved and there are now 4 different ways to wear your claddagh ring!
Single: Wear the ring on your right hand with the heart facing outwards.
Relationship: Wear it on your right hand with the heart pointed inwards.
Engaged: Wear it on your left hand with the heart pointing outwards.
Married: Wear it on your left hand with the heart facing inward.
As you may know, the word Claddagh is not pronounced as it sounds - say "Cla-da" to sound like you are from "the old sod".
