The Claddagh Ring
Height 9cm Width 9cm
The Claddagh Ring, symbolising love, friendship, and loyalty was first used as a wedding ring over 400 years ago in the tiny fishing village 'The Claddagh' in Galway city, Ireland.
This carving is made by a process known as Intarsia, which is the ancient art of making pictorial mosaics by laying precious and exotic woods onto a solid wood surface. Seven different woods are used to make these Celtic designs.
