The Claddagh Ring is the most famous of Irish Rings, symbolising love, loyalty and friendship. This symbolism is best represented by how the ring is worn.
When the ring is placed on the right hand with the heart nearest the fingertip, it indicates that the wearer is single and available. When worn similarly on the left hand, it means that the wearer is single, but has an occupied heart. When the ring is worn on the left hand with the crown nearest the fingertip and the heart pointing towards the heart, it means that the wearer is married.
