This ring is my Christmas gift from my boyfriend - an Emerald (my birthstone) Claddagh ring! It`s GORGEOUS and I must say my boyfriend has great taste when it comes to picking out rings (he got my a ring last Christmas and everyone compliments me for it).
I admit I have a very Irish name, but I am not Irish. My boyfriend is Irish so the meaning behind the ring was symbolic to him and he wanted to share it with me -- since he does love me. I`ll be honest I wasn`t sure how to wear it -- a few of my friends have them and they wear them certain ways, while another wears it differently. Since I already have a ring on my right hand, I was going to have it sized (it`s a smidgen too snug on my ring finger) for my left hand. My boyfriend raised his brow at that -- so I thought looking something up online might do me a favor. I did and I found the hand you wear it on and in the manner mean different things. So the hand I wanted to wear it on meant marriage or engagement (LOL! Whoops!!). I`ve got to get to the jeweler to have it re-sized and I`ll ensure I get it sized for my right hand ;).
In case you are wondering the symbolism behind the Claddagh ring, please see the description as to how to wear your ring based on who it was given to you from (italicized information from source: wikipedia)
<em>1. On the right hand with the point of the heart toward the fingertips, the wearer is single and may be looking for love. (This is most commonly the case when a young woman has first received the ring from a relative, unless she is already engaged).
2. On the right hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist, the wearer is in a relationship (suggesting their heart has been "captured").
3. On the left hand with the point of the heart toward the fingertips, the wearer is engaged.
4. On the left hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist, the wearer is married</em>
