A traditional Irish symbol from centuries past, the Branka claddagh ring is today's hope. The darling central heart is secure between loving hands, a perfect crown set above - together representing purity, love, and loyalty. Traditionally, the manner of wearing has much to say:
Worn on the right hand, heart facing out... your heart is open.
Worn on the right hand, heart facing in... your heart is not available.
Worn on the left hand, heart facing in... your heart belongs to your spouse.
Worn on the left hand, heart facing out... you are engaged.
