The Claddagh Symbol
The whisper of romance lingers within every Claddagh. A gift of love, Crafted in Ireland it echoes a tale of devotion retold over the centuries.
Once upon a time, so the story goes a young Irish sailor was captured and sold into slavery. Far from his native land, he held the memory of his sweetheart deep in his heart. He never forgot her. Years later, on his safe return to Galway his gift to her was a Claddagh Ring. Forged with the skills he learnt during his imprisonment, it was a token of his enduring love. “With these hands I give you my heart and I crown it with my love”. The Claddagh holds the memory of true love that can last forever.
You can add you own chapter to the story even now by how you wear it. On your right hand with its heart facing outwards, it shows that you own heart is not yet taken. Turn its heart inwards and you’ll let admirers know that love is a possibility. But if you wear it on your left hand, with its heart turned inwards towards you own, there can be no doubt. It tells the world: two hearts have joined together forever. Wear it and be part of a never ending love story.
Connemara Marble and Connemara Ireland

Connemara lies in the territory of Iar Connacht, "West Connacht," which is the west portion of County Galway, Ireland. Connemara Marble is referred to "Ireland's Gem Stone" as it is a very unique and rare form of Marble. This beautiful marble offers a range of colour tones, from the lighter, paler shades of green, all the way to rich dark emerald tones.
