Relationships are complicated. Sometimes you may not want to presume the status of a relationship – but you do want a gift that makes the person know they are special. You may even want to find out what they think of you?
A Claddagh ring is the perfect choice. The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish ring given which represents love, loyalty, and friendship (the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty). Based on how the ring is worn represents the various states of the wearer’s “relationship status”.
- If the Claddagh ring is on the right hand with the heart facing outward (away from the body), this indicates that the person wearing the ring is not in any serious relationship.
When worn on the right hand but with the heart facing inward (toward the body), this means the person wearing the ring is in a relationship.
- If the relationship is more serious, a Claddagh ring worn on the left hand ring finger facing outward (away from the body) usually indicates that the wearer is engaged and when the ring is on the left hand ring finger and facing inward it generally means that the person wearing the ring is married.
So – if you are looking for something a bit more convincing than the relationship status on Facebook from that special person – give them a Claddagh ring and observe how they wear it!
