Irish Claddagh Rings :: Emerald Claddagh Rings

Emerald Claddagh Rings are the perfect marriage of history, symbolism and love

Birthstone Claddagh rings have recently become extremely popular.   None more so than Emerald Claddagh rings, which are a new take on this traditional Irish symbol.  Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle, so although emerald Claddagh rings are new, the meaning and symbolism of this ring are rooted in history, and enhance the sentiment surrounding this cherished ring. 

The emerald, the birthstone for May, has long been a symbol of love.  The deep green hue symbolized Spring, fertility and rebirth as far back as the days of Cleopatra, queen of Eqypt, who wore and collected emeralds from her famed emerald mine.  More recently, Princess Diana of Britain chose a stunning emerald ring for her engagement ring.  Emerald Claddagh rings are a way to accentuate the love, friendship and loyalty that the Claddagh ring represents, with the allure and history of the emerald.

Choosing the Perfect Emerald Claddagh Rings...

While emeralds with no inclusions and deep blue green hue are the most prized, emeralds with branched inclusions are often admired for their beautiful patterns, known as “jardin”, which is French for garden.  Emeralds are often cut in a rectangular shape with beveled edges, called very appropriately an “emerald cut”.  Emerald Claddagh rings usually have an emerald in place of the heart set in the center of the ring, or in the case of diamond and emerald claddagh rings, either the diamond or emerald can be used as the heart.

Of all Birthstone Claddagh rings, emerald Claddagh rings are uniquely memorable due to the emerald’s many links throughout history to love, and the enduring name this gemstone lends to Ireland, the Emerald Isle.  Follow the link for a wonderful selection of Claddagh Birthstone Rings
