The Claddagh is an old Irish symbol dating back to the 17th century and represents love, loyalty and friendships: Love in the heart; Loyalty in the crown; and Friendship in the hands.
Here the Claddagh is perfectly suited to the oval shape of the locket. The arms are a stylized braiding that calls to mind a celtic knot and create a decorative border around the locket's upper curve. The arms continue downward to join with the focal point of the locket – the hands, heart and crown that is nestled in the bottom curve.
The inner compartment of the locket is generously sized to hold your small photo, memento, or other small treasure.
