As the name might suggest, the Claddagh ring remains our iconic and beloved signature piece. Even as our collection has expanded over the years, the Claddagh continues to hold an enduring place in our hearts.

This exquisite design, crafted by our gifted goldsmith, Eileen, remains a cherished cornerstone of our collection. Through the passage of time, Eileen's collection has grown to include various styles of Claddagh jewelry as well as Ogham and Celtic inspired pieced. Yet, this particular design remains a timeless favorite.

What distinguishes it is a timeless Irish tradition. The Claddagh symbol is revered worldwide for its embodiment of love, loyalty, and friendship. Over the centuries, the Claddagh Ring has been exchanged as a token of love, often passed down through generations of families.

Eileen has gracefully elevated this meaningful emblem, imparting it with a unique contemporary twist.
