The Enduring Legend of Claddagh Jewelry
Legend has it that the Claddagh ring 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, in 1698, King William III 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.
