About Us

Having begun in Galway, Ireland, Claddagh Rings opened a small store under the shadow of the Guinness Brewery in the heart of the Dublin Liberties way back in 1996. Back in those days, there were not a lot of websites selling Claddagh rings, in fact, I believe that we are Ireland’s oldest online Claddagh ring store. We then moved to a small shop in the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, just off Grafton Street, Since then, and thousands of satisfied customers later, we have become the home of the Claddagh ring on the Internet.

We are no longer open to the public but we are in still based in Dublin, please do not call into the office address as we’re usually in the workshop. My name is Stuart and I’m an award winning jewelry designer and master craftsman and I take pride in each and every piece of Celtic jewelry that we create and sell.


The stunning Claddagh Ring is the result of a story of love, endurance and bravery, which was first told more than 300 years ago in the historic fishing community of Claddagh, located outside the city walls of Galway on the west coast of Ireland.
An Irish fisherman called Richard Joyce was captured by pirates and sold into slavery in North Africa. Being in the service of a master goldsmith, his potential was noticed and he was given expert training in order to nurture this natural talent. Thinking of his wife at home, Richard created the first Claddagh Ring and added the crown for loyalty and hands for friendship.
When he was freed from being a slave, he returned to Galway in Ireland and gave this ring to his wife who loved it. It became a famous design and a family heirloom handed down through generations to treasure. These days people from around the world come to us to purchase an authentic Irish Claddagh ring.

Exquisite craftsmanship using the finest hallmarked silver and gold creates authentic Claddagh Rings.
