You are looking at a shiny silver tone Claddaugh Italian charm. This sweet charm has the Claddaugh symbol two hands holding a heart, which wears a crown. The circled arms are done in Irish green and the heart is gold tone. The charm is detailed and outlined in gold tone. This is a very cute charm!
The Claddagh is a unique and distinctive Irish love symbol, which is believed to have originated in the Claddagh, a small fishing community near Galway Bay. The motif is explained in the phrase "Let Love and Friendship Reign". When worn on the right hand with crown turned inwards, your heart is yet unoccupied. Worn on the right hand with the crown turned outwards shows a special commitment to someone. When worn on the left hand with the crown outwards, it means let our love and friendship reign forever - never to be separated.
What a wonderful gift to give someone you care about... or add it to your own Italian charm bracelet!
