Once a betrothal had been decided the claddagh ring would be worn on the right hand but turned in so the heart faced inwards and this was to show that your heart had now been taken.

Upon marriage, the claddagh ring was then transferred to the left hand with the heart still turned inwards as a sign of the commitment and love between the two people and this was their wedding band.

Over time the popularity of the claddagh design grew and now, people all over the world give and receive the claddagh ring. It is given as a gift to friends as a sign of friendship and to loved ones they hold dear as a sign of love and commitment thus carrying on the age old message of Love (the heart), Loyalty (the crown) and Friendship (the hands).
