The Claddagh Story
The first Claddagh ring was created in medieval times, by an Irishman who hailed from Galway. This merchant seaman, Richard Joyce, was sailing aboard a vessel in Moorish lands when he was kidnapped and sold into slavery.
Forced to work as a goldsmith, Joyce soon developed formidable skills in his new vocation.
During this period, he longed for his true love, Margaret, who waited for him in Galway. It is quite certain that Joyce believed (against all odds) that he would see his true love again one day.
To honor their love, he created the very first Irish Claddagh Ring, which is also known as the Royal Claddagh Ring. After years of slavery, the British King arranged for all British subjects to be released from slavery, and Joyce became a free man.
He sailed back to Galway, where Margaret, who had never stopped loving him, was waiting with open arms. He placed her gold Claddagh ring upon her finger, and the couple remained together until the end of their lives…
