A beautiful 18 kt yellow gold claddagh ring with 1 heart facetted cut medium intense emerald, est. 0.42ct and 12 round brilliant cut diamonds, est. 0.36ct (VS clarity: G-H colour).
According to Irish author Colin Murphy, a Claddagh ring was worn with the intention of conveying the wearer's relationship status:
- On the right hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist: the wearer is not looking for a relationship (may already be in one or may not be in one, but is not looking).
- On the right hand with the point of the heart toward the fingertips: the wearer is single and may be looking for love.
- On the left ring finger with the point of the heart toward the fingertips: the wearer is engaged.
- On the left ring finger with the point of the heart toward the wrist: the wearer is married.
There are other localised variations and oral traditions, involving the hand and the finger on which the Claddagh is worn. Folklore about the ring is relatively recent, not ancient, with "very little native Irish writing about the ring", hence, the difficulty today in finding any source that describes or explains the traditional ways of wearing the ring.
