Product DescriptionListen for whispers of ancient love when you wear this beautiful, sterling silver claddagh earring. The claddagh earring is created by the Master designers at Solvar, which is a Dublin-based, family-owned jewelry business. This expertly-crafted claddagh earring traveled from the Emerald Isle to join you and tell its tale of Irish love, loyalty, and friendship. The artful design elements on our claddagh earring represent the following: the heart is 'love', the crown is 'loyalty', and the hands are 'friendship', which sum up the love between a Glasgow sailor and his sweetheart when he was sold into slavery for many years.
Upon his return, he crafted the claddagh design that many people now enjoy in numerous forms, like this claddagh earring. The claddagh earring signifies a rich heritage that is not only deeply beloved by the Irish, but has been adopted by the rest of the world. The claddagh earring hangs 3/4 inches from the 'eruo wire', or popular lever back ear hook, which is the type of ear hook that makes it difficult for the earrings to be lost. The claddagh earring is mounted on a padded card which is suitable for safe-keeping your Irish beauties when not in use.
