In Ireland Claddagh rings are commonly used as engagement or wedding rings. The hands that represent friendship the crown that honors loyalty and the heart that symbolizes love all become partners in the ultimate emblem of commitment to a significant other. Sometimes the shape of an engagement ring is so stunningly unconventional that a custom-designed wedding band is necessary to create the effect of perfect unity between the two pieces of jewelry. Though for hundreds of years the simple circle of yellow gold defined the traditional wedding band these days craftsmen can model them in any style to suit the bride’s tastes.
