Day 149- “Claddagh Ring”

Featured today (actually, a couple days ago, if I posted it on time) is my friend Erin’s Claddagh ring. I asked her about it, since I’ve seen them before but never really understood what they were. She explained the symbolism of them and what it means when you wear them a certain way- on the right hand with the heart facing the fingertips, the wearer is single; on the right hand with the heart facing the wrist, the wearer is in a relationship (their heart is “captured”); on the left hand with the heart facing the fingertips, the wearer is engaged; on the left hand with the heart facing the wrist the wearer is married.

I like the photo because of the ring’s symbolism, and I love the focus on the ring.
