Forged in the 17th century, this Irish love token originated in a small village called Claddagh. The hands represent friendship, the heart love and the crown loyalty.
Materials: Sterling Silver
Dimensions (width x height): 5/8" x 3/4"
Height is measured from the top of the findings loop to the bottom of the earring.
Legend has it that the Claddagh jewelry was invented by a silversmith called Richard Joyce. Hailing from the fishing town of Claddagh, Joyce, unfortunately, found himself at the hands of pirates during a trip in the West Indies (current-day Caribbean).
The pirates kidnapped Joyce and sold him as a slave to a Moorish goldsmith in Algeria. As a slave, he created the Claddagh ring as a reminder of his home.
Luckily, King William III in 1698 got wind of the British and Irish captives in Algeria and demanded their release.
This is when Joyce returned to his beloved hometown and met his sweetheart. He married her shortly after with a Claddagh ring, creating a tradition that lives on to this day.

Each piece of Keith Jack jewelry you purchase will have a complimentary cleaning cloth in the box under the black pad.
To remove oils and dirt, wipe your jewelry with a silver polishing cloth or the Keith Jack polishing cloth that was provided.
Never use a silver cleaning liquid on jewelry with any areas that are oxidized (darker in color). The silver cleaning liquid will strip away the finish. Silver liquid cleaners are fine to use for silver jewelry that does not have a darkened, oxidized background. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions before using silver polish.
Do not apply perfumes, lotions, aftershave or chemicals while wearing jewelry.
Remove your jewelry before sleeping or doing physical activities to avoid causing excess friction and stress on it.
To avoid tarnishing and discoloration, remove jewelry before swimming in chlorinated pools or hot tubs.
