The story of the claddagh ring is based around a young fisherman, who lived in the small fishing village named 'Claddagh' in Ireland.  The young man named Robert Joyce one day saw his boat attacked by pirates who, looted everything aboard and then, sold the captives as slaves. This was around four centuries ago when slavery was rampant. Robert ended up working with a wealthy goldsmith, he started to learn the trade from him. After a few weeks, the young slave started to feel depressed as the thought of being separated from his beloved made him sad. With no likely end to his sorrow in sight, Robert Joyce decided to make something for her - he chose to craft a ring with his newly acquired skills. The idea was to keep alive the dream of being freed from slavery, he could then return to his village and give the ring to her. Through the features of the ring, Robert wished to capture his true feelings for her - something that would remain forever molded in jewel. It was with this frame of mind that he conceptualized the hands, crown and heart in the ring. The hands denoted togetherness, the crown showed his loyalty to her and the heart was meant to tell her just how much he loved her. The couple did manage to be reunited in the village of Claddagh when, the young man was freed from slavery after a few years. They were married shortly after that and lived happily ever after. Needless to say that, Robert Joyce proudly gave her the ring that he had so meticulously crafted for her. The ring came to be known as a the Claddagh ring, named after the fishing village. The story of the ring spread and the touching tale behind the jewel, brought it universal recognition.
