Once upon a time, so the story goes, a young Irish sailor was captured and sold into slavery. Far from his native land, he held the memory of his sweetheart deep in is heart. He never forgot her. Years later, on his safe return to Galway, his gift to her was a Claddagh ring. Forged with the skills he had learnt during his imprisonment, it was token of his enduring love. "With this hands I give you my heart, and I crown it with my love".
The Claddagh holds the memory of true love that can last forever
