royal claddagh

i am, at this very moment, wearing a big gaudy ring — and i love it. now most of you, if you know me at all, know that i don’t like “big and guady.” i prefer small and delicate. but not this time. this past monday, i purchased for myself a silver claddagh ring. for those of you who don’t know what a claddagh ring looks like…

i know, a big heart. rather cheesy, eh? rather, not very louissa. the only time i like hearts anything is on a valentine. not jewelry. and yet i love claddagh jewelry. perhaps it’s because of the family i grew up in. claddagh is celtic. a claddagh ring has been the traditional wedding ring in ireland since the 17th century. and my family is proud that they’re irish. my nana and aunts all have claddagh jewelry. i have claddagh earrings. and now a claddagh ring. or maybe that’s not the reason. whatever it is — all i know is that i love claddagh anything. it’s gaudy and yes, a heart with a crown and two hands surrounding it.

but you’ll probably see me wearing it on a regular basis. because i love the symbol. because i’m irish. and i’m proud of it.

and because i’m a freak! i have more pictures (check out the notes — i’m just so funny)!
