The Claddagh Symbol

Two hands hold a heart between them, with a crown on top of the heart, in this Celtic (or Irish) emblem. “With my two hands, I give you my heart, and crown it with my allegiance,” some say is an expression used to explain this gesture. Friendship, love, and loyalty are all represented by the symbol. Wearing this ring on your right hand with the crown turned inwards is considered to indicate that you are single. It denotes love involvement if you wear it with the crown turned outward. You are engaged if you wear the ring on your left hand with the crown pointing outwards.
