Claddagh

Aren’t hands awesome? They’re one of the defining things about us as humans and have so much magnificently fine tuned engineering in them. They’re famed as hard to draw, but once you’ve figured out the arcs of the knuckles they’re fairly straightforward. The wrists are the hardest part. Claddagh rings traditionally include a crown and a heart, but this ring is transforming it into a more modern engagement ring, which needs to be taller and narrower to fit next to a wedding ring. The row of diamonds is a nod to the crown and the tattoos are personal to each client, mixing Indian and Celtic symbols in one of them. For some reason these have all been commissioned in palladium.
