This claddagh ring holds so much meaning. Whether you prescribe to its meaning of “friendship, loyalty and love,” or “in the loving hands of God,” my claddagh ring has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. It represented a marriage vow when my Brazilian grandmother gave my Irish grandfather a claddagh ring as a wedding band. It meant tradition when my mom did the same for my dad on their wedding day.
You may have wondered why we chose Ireland for our destination wedding, well, it’s because of this ring I’ve worn since I was twelve years old. A beautiful and authentic Irish symbol.
