This gorgeous pendant features two great Celtic symbols - the Trinity Knot and the Claddagh! This .925 sterling silver pendant is available in several chain lengths.
The Claddagh is the most beloved of Irish symbols and represents love, loyalty and friendship. It is believed that the Claddagh symbol was designed by Richard Joyce who hailed from Galway. Whilst fishing off the coast one day he was caught by pirates and sold into slavery in North Africa. He served an Arab goldsmith and learned the trade of jewelry making. During the 14 years of his slavery he pined for his sweetheart left behind in Galway so he designed the Claddagh ring which he hoped to present to her one day. After his release he returned to Galway and married his sweetheart!
The Trinity knot symbolizes the Holy Trinity - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
