How To Wear a Claddagh Ring
The Claddagh Ring has been the traditional wedding ring in Irish culture since the 17th century. There are four basic meanings depending on how the ring is worn:
Single: You should wear the ring on your right hand with the heart facing outwards.
Relationship: You should wear it on your right hand with the heart pointed inwards.
Engaged: You wear it on your left hand with the heart pointing outwards.

In Irish tradition, the Claddagh ring is passed down from mother to the eldest daughter and is kept in the family for generations. During the middle of the 19th century, millions of Irish people emigrated because of the Great Famine and travelled thousands of miles on coffin ships; the majority of these emigrants found their way to North America.
