My ring is a claddagh ring. It originally belonged to my grandmother and was given to me. It’s a very traditional Irish ring that women wear. It symbolizes love, friendship, and loyalty.
But the way you wear them symbolizes different relationship statuses:
>Right hand with the point of the heart toward the fingertips—single
>Right hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist—taken
>Left hand with the point of the heart toward the fingertips—engaged
>Left hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist—married
So when a girl turns her ring around it means she’s gone from being single or just dating into a more serious relationship with someone. And when the ring switches hands it means you’ve gone from dating toward marriage.
Claddagh rings are traditionally passed from mother to daughter in Irish families, and usually given when a girl comes of age.
I think they’re incredibly beautiful and special. :)
