We would like to say a few things about the tradition and meaning of he claddagh ring here. A research team from Kaisilver spent several months studying this historic jewel. The findings from this research were used by our designing experts to finalize the specifications of the Kaisilver claddagh ring.

It is for the this reason that Kaisilver gold and silver claddagh gem stone rings are regarded as the world's best rendition of the ring.
Your claddagh jade ring has it's origins in a small fishing village in Ireland named Claddagh. Almost four centuries ago, this was a pretty village with lovely natural scenery and it was during that time that the ring was first made. Modernisation has changed the face of the village but, the respect and admiration for the claddagh ring has grown with each generation. Over 375 years ago, there lived a young fisherman by the name of Robert Joyce in this village. Young Robert often sailed the high seas with his fellow fishermen, his beloved waited patiently for him to return each night. One eventful day spelt tragedy and the boat in which Robert and his friends were sailing was raided by pirates. Slavery was rampant in those times and all the captives including Robert were sold as slaves. A wealthy goldsmith bought Robert Joyce and put him to work in his workshop.
The physical hardship of slavery was something that Robert could bear but, the thought of being seperated from his beloved mentally tormented him. He started learning the trade from his master, just one dream giving him the will to survive. He dreamt that he would one day be a free man and be united with her. Each day felt like a year and it was during this time that he decided to make something to gift to his beloved. Using his developing skills as a goldsmith, he decided to make a ring for her. A few years later Robert saw his dream come true, he was freed from slavery and returned to his small village. He was obviously overjoyed to find his beloved still waiting for him and gave her the ring that he had made for her. The ring came to be known as the claddagh ring and is the first recorded case of this amazing jewel.
This is the story behind your claddagh jade ring, we now explain the meaning of the various features of the ring. The harsh conditions under which the first claddagh ring was made and the sacrifice and love, symbolized by the very thought of making it add sufficient meaning to the jewel. Talking about the features of the jewel, observe the image of the claddagh jade gem stone ring shown above. There is a heart shaped portion in the center of the ring, this really needs no explanation and love is what it symbolizes. The hands that hold the heart show friendship or togetherness. It is this feature that groups the claddagh ring with other rings from the 'faith rings' category. The crown on top of the heart should be a given a fair interpretation and denotes loyalty. Given the circumstances under which the first claddagh ring was made, loyalty between two lovers is evident.
One important thing that you should know is related to the gem in your claddagh jade gem stone ring. The first claddagh ring was all gold and had no gemstone, Kaisilver chose to enhance the beauty and meaning of the ring by adding a gemstone. The gemstone in your ring can be chosen according to your preference or even represent a birth stone.
Here are some more details specifically related to your jade gem stone claddagh ring.
Metal: The Kaisilver claddagh jade ring is available in gold or sterling silver. Both gold and silver claddagh rings have the same fine craftsmanship and good metal weight. The same production and design team works on gold and sterling silver rings. Since the meaning of this historic jewel is in the features and tradition, a silver or gold jade claddagh ring will have the same meaning. When it comes to gold jade rings, you can choose 14k or 18k gold and also select white or yellow gold. Both white and yellow gold rings are priced the same. For silver claddagh rings we suggest that no rhodium or other plating be done, this is because all plating on silver will wear off in time.
Weight: We realize that metal weight is an important factor that directly influences the durability of a jewel. Most other jewelers would produce similar jewels with a weight of 4 to 5 grams. In our view this is grossly insufficient, light weight jewels can bend or dent easily. Firm gem stone mounting is also not possible with low metal weight. The Kaisilver claddagh ring has a healthy metal weight of around 8 to 10 grams. This is almost double of what other jewelers provide. The good metal weight will work to your advantage in the longterm.
Gemstone: The RG236 claddagh ring is shown above with a green jade gemstone. We provide unlimited gemstone options and you can refer to the table shown below. Prices differ according to the gem stone selected, we can even procure a gemstone that is not mentioned in the table. The gem stone is a 7mm to 8mm heart shaped green jade and in this case has been cut with a smooth (cabachon) cut. You can choose to leave out the gem stone and have the entire heart portion made in gold or sterling silver too. When it comes to jade please note that both jadeite and nephrite are classified as jade. This is accepted by all gemological experts and also by the FTC.
Gem treatment: Like most other gemstones used in the jewelry sector today, this green jade gem has also been treated to enhance color. Jade when mined is rarely seen with a good green color that is uniformly spread throughout the gem. Gem experts have discovered advanced processes to enhance the color of jade. These treatments are permanent and do not affect the durability of the jade gem. Almost 90% of the jade used in jewelry production is treated to enhance color. This provides jewelry buyers to own a good jade ring at an affordable price.
We can however produce your jade claddagh ring with an untreated jade stone. Such gems will be supplied with a certification to state that they are not treated. Untreated jade can be of two types, medium grade jade will have color zoning and you will not see a uniform color spread on the stone. The price of your claddagh ring will increase by 50 U.S$ if you need such a jade gemstone. On the other hand, if you need a green jade that is untreated but has a color and color spread that, is as good the stone shown in the RG236 ring image, add another 150 U.S$ for such a gemstone.
