A Claddagh ring represents the symbol of love and it is highly appreciated by marrying couples that choose this type of ring as their engagement ring or wedding ring. Usually, these couples have a certain relation with Ireland, because this is from where this type of ring is originated.
A Claddagh ring reveals a lot about the girl/woman wearing it, but this is available only for a trained eye, because other people could say that what the girl/woman is wearing is just another beautiful ring. The Claddagh ring is represented by two hands joined together and holding a heart, that has a crown on top of it.

We will begin with the ways a girl/woman can choose for wearing her Claddagh ring. That are many ways that can be taken into account, but we will discuss only about 3 of them, that involves the ‘ring finger’, as it is called.
The first way is wearing the Claddagh ring on your right hand with its heart facing away from you or in other words, with the heart closest to the fingernail. This means that you are still searching for a person ready to take your heart. In this case, you are neither married, nor engaged. There should be made a mention here: both males and females can wear a Claddagh ring this way.
If the ring is worn on your right hand with the heart facing towards you, it means that you are in a relationship and probably already engaged to your partner. By wearing a Claddagh ring this way, you show the world that you are no longer available. This method of wearing a Claddagh ring is mostly used by females to show men they are no longer interested in starting a new relationship. It is also used by females that don't want to be stressed by men, who are always harassing them, so it is in a way a protection method as well.
The third and most important way of wearing a Claddagh ring is to place it on your left hand with the heart facing towards you. This means that you are married and obviously no longer interested in other relationships. Males and females can use this type of ring as their wedding ring, but usually this happens only with the ladies.
A wedding ring is beautiful when it is combined with other jewelry, such as a necklace, bracelet, earrings, pendants, medallions and others. So, what we want to present now are several accessories of this kind, which can be easily combined with a Claddagh wedding ring, because they have the same symbol: those two hands joined together by a heart, with a crown on top of it.

Maybe the most important symbol of Christianity, the cross, is also represented in the case of another Claddagh accessory: the yellow gold emerald Claddagh cross pendant ($126). You can always combine this cross pendant with one of the available yellow gold Claddagh rings.
