The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish ring. The hands represent friendship; the heart represents love; and the crown represents loyalty.
Jeff had come in to the store with an idea for a Claddagh ring for his anniversary. He envisioned anatomically correct hands holding a carat heart shaped diamond with a 3 dimensional crown instead of the typical flat design. The hands would rise up to meet the height of the table of the diamond set in the basket head. The crowning touch was to flush set 3 ruby birthstones of their 3 July born children in the crown. A brilliant design. I was my pleasure to make it a reality.
