Why Wear A Man Claddagh Ring, The Claddagh Ring Story.
Most men would consider a man claddagh ring because of it's meaning. To fully understand the importance of a man claddagh ring, we will need to narrate the tradition of the claddagh ring. We will go back in time to around 375 years and to a small Irish fishing village named Claddagh. Those were the times of pirates and slavery, the history of the Irish claddagh ring is linked to both of these. An Irish fisherman by the name of Robert Joyce lived in this small fishing village. Robert Joyce was one day fishing with a group of fisherman on the high seas when, the boat he was sailing in was attacked by pirates. The inmates of his boat were captured and sold to slavery.

Young Robert Joyce was sold to a goldsmith, the wealthy gold smith forced Robert to toil for him. The physical hardships that Robert Joce faced at the hands of the goldsmith were nothing compared to the pain that he felt deep in his heart. Robert's sweetheart was left alone in the Claddagh village and no amount of physical agony could make him forget her. He gradually learnt the goldsmith trade from his master and and kept dreaming of one day returning to his village. To ease the pain and grief in his heart Robert Joyce kept believing that he would one day be united with his beloved. He started making a jewel (for her) that would symbolise everything that he felt for her. The dream of finishing this jewel and one day gifting it to her, gave him an inner strength to live through his years as a slave.

Part of his dream came true when he was released from slavery and was a free man. He took the jewel that he had made for his beloved and returned back to the Claddagh village. His happiness knew no bounds when, he met his beloved who was patiently waiting for his return. He gifted the jewel to her and this came to be known as the first Claddagh ring in history. The couple were soon married and lived happily ever after. Some versions of this narration also claim that, the wealthy goldsmith had offered Robert Joyce (after being released from slavery) his daughter's hand in marriage. Robert Joyce refused and chose to come back to his beloved.

The features of the Claddagh ring clearly demonstrate the love and affection that Robert had for his beloved. The heart shaped center obviously shows love and affection. The hands holding the heart symbolise friendship and togetherness, remember that Robert Joyce kept dreaming of one day being together with his wife. The interpretation of the crown in those days, would most likely signify loyalty to the crown (royal family). However, in today's world the crown could be taken to mean loyalty between two lovers, or friends or even mother and child.

You will be impressed to know that, your man claddagh ring is one of history's most meaningful jewels. The historic meaning and significance of your gold or silver man claddagh ring, is not related to someone opressing and plundering someone to acquire this ring. The humble feelings between a poor slave and his ordinary lover is what add importance to your man claddagh ring. You could buy a man claddagh ring for yourself or receive it as gift from your lover, child or good friend. The virtues of love (caring), friendship (togetherness) and loyalty (towards lover, child or friend) will forever be with you, historically embedded in your man claddagh ring. If you are looking for a men's ring, the man claddagh ring in gold or sterling silver would be an excellent choice. It symbolizes qualities that are slowly depleting in today's world that is filled with greed, hatred and jealousy. There are ways in which you can further enhance the meaning of the man claddagh ring and we have covered them in more detail in the next paragraph.

The side view of the man claddagh ring clearly shows the gemstone with a low profile. This reduces the chances of your claddagh ring getting damaged with physical impact.

The band width of the gold or sterling silver man claddagh ring is a good 5mm behind the finger. This gives the ring a majestic and imposing look. Good weight also makes this mens' claddagh gemstone ring sturdy.
The celtic design on the band of the custom man claddagh ring extends all around the band. Every gold or silver claddagh ring is completely custom made, good weight and dimensions are maintained for all ring sizes.

Enhancing The Significance And Importance Of Your Man Claddagh Ring.
If you have read the history of the claddagh ring above, you will better appreciate the significance of the man claddagh ring. Despite the existing meaning of this historic jewel, there are ways in which you can enhance the meaning of your gold or sterling silver man claddagh ring. This is all the more possible with a Kaisilver custom man claddagh ring, since you have a high degree of customization and flexibility. We have retained the features of the original claddagh ring and further added features that can be customized to meet your needs.

The gemstone in your man claddagh ring can be selected as per your preference. You can for example, choose a birthstone for your custom man claddagh ring. A birthstone ring is considered a very special jewel and the meaning of the claddagh ring will add to the importance of your birthstone ring. Many people believe in the special properties of gemstones and this is also one way in which the gemstone for your custom man claddagh ring can be chosen. Or you could choose a gemstone by your liking based on gemstone color. Choosing the gemstone is therefore one way in which you can add to the meaning of your silver or gold man claddagh ring. There is a growing trend for couples to exchange birthstones in their rings. This would mean that the man wears his claddagh ring with the lady's birthstone and vice versa.

The man claddagh ring is also very suitable for a man wedding or engagement ring. A special occassion ring has meaning because of the occassion for which it is purchased or worn. However, the meaning of a wedding or engagement is very similar to the true meaning of your man claddagh ring. A wedding or engagement is a solemn decision or commitment between two individuals to stay together for the rest of their lives. It also implies mutual love and loyalty between the two individuals. This is the underlying concept of marriage and engagment among all religions, colors and nationalities. Your man claddagh ring embodies these very qualities and is therefore a perfect choice for a special occassion ring.

If you are considering a custom man claddagh ring for your wedding or engagement, remember that Kaisilver also offers the claddagh ring for ladies. It is therefore a very good choice for a pair of wedding or engagement rings. As explained above, the interesting option to exchange birthstones in such rings can also be considered. With the complete flexibility provided for your Kaisilver custom man claddagh ring, all gemstone options are available. Order your men's claddagh ring with your partner's birthstone and include your birthstone in her claddagh ring.

Another idea to enhance your claddagh man ring would be to have some personalized etching done inside the band. If you are gifting a custom man claddagh ring to someone, have a short date or occassion engraved inside the band. Some people prefer to have a name etched inside the band. Since every Kaisilver claddagh men's ring is fully custom made, all options are available. You can choose the options when ordering a gold or sterling silver man claddagh ring. Just keep in mind that, a long message etched inside the band would not be very readable as the individual characters or numbers would be very small. Discuss with your jeweller before finalizing what needs to be etched inside the band of your man claddagh ring. You might have to use initials or short forms instead of, complete names or phrases. This will be dependent on the size of our silver or gold claddagh men's ring too.

The above are some ideas to enhance the meaning of your man claddagh ring. Use these as mere guidelines and do not hesitate to come up with your own ideas. Since we control the entire production process including gemstone procurement and cutting, we are able to provide a high degree of flexibility and customization that no other jeweller can match.

A Few Random Thoughts And Ideas For Your Custom Claddagh Men's Ring
We have already talked about the history and tradition of the claddagh ring. When you wear or gift a man claddagh ring, remember that it is a jewel with a tremendous history. The meaning is in the design and features of your custom men's claddagh ring, the gemstone or metal are just one component of this stunning jewel. Here are some interesting and useful bits of information that can guide you in selecting the perfect man claddagh ring.

Metal or gemstone is secondary: Do not be under the impression that a gold man claddagh ring has more meaning as compared to a claddagh man ring in sterling silver. The significance of your men's claddagh ring would be in the hands, crown and heart as they symbolize love, loyalty and togetherness. So work within your budget and select a gold or sterling silver man claddagh ring. The main thing is that, your claddagh men's ring needs to have a good weight and craftsmanship and a design that together provides good durability. The gemstone selection can be used to enhance the meaning of your custom claddagh men's ring. Your Kaisilver man claddagh ring provides all gemstone options, this is for the silver or gold men's claddagh ring.

Gemstone and durability: We have mentioned that the researched design of the Kaisilver claddagh ring for men, has inbuilt features to enhance the durability of your ring. Good metal weight, solid gemstone mounting and streamlined features are some of these features. You should also know that, the gemstone you choose for your man claddagh ring might require different degrees of caring and looking after. Every gemstone on this planet has it's own physical characteristics, these include hardness, color, inclusions etc. This should be taken into consideration when understanding the durability of your men's claddagh ring. For example, a gemstone like Kunzite might fade in color when exposed to strong light and heat conditions. A gemstone like Tanzanite should not be worn when doing physical activities like repairing a car, gardening etc. This is because, the gemstone might chip or break with physical impact. This is something that you should know when choosing, wearing and storing your man claddagh ring. Make sure that the jeweller you select for your man claddagh ring, is aware of gemstone properties and more importantly, is willing to openly share this information with you. The information will be useful in guiding you to select the right gemstone for your gold or sterling silver man claddagh ring.

Jeweller as important as the jewel: The source that you select to get your man claddagh ring from is as important as the ring itself. Get a reputed jeweller who is willing to understand your requirement and provide you with a solution and options. There are just too many decisions to be taken and things to be evaluated when buying a jewel like a men's claddagh ring. Most jewellers would like to push the product or gemstone that they have in stock. Mass produced men's claddagh rings do not provide much scope for customization and are generally light weight and flimsy. This is why we recommend that you find a good custom jeweller who will make a sturdy, good looking man claddagh ring for you. Every Kaisilver man claddagh ring is fully custom made with custom cut gemstones. Our support staff are gemstone and jewelry experts and not smart talking sales people, this will work to your advantage as you do not feel the pressure to make a hurried decision.
