    A claddagh is an Irish ring. Sometimes worn as a friendship ring, sometimes as a wedding ring. Usually yellow gold. The ring has two hands holding a heart. First made in Galway, Ireland.

    When I was in Galway I went to the jewelry shop that claims to be the first to have made them. In the back they have a claddagh museum. It was k8nd of cool. Don’t think I’ve ever seen them in Aruba though

    I could use a new one myself, the one I have only fits on my pinky now very old. I would love one with an emerald stone, if you find one let us know, good luck searching and shopping.
