Based in Ireland, Glencara specializes in Claddagh & Celtic Rings and Jewelry since 1978. We are a family business, passionate about Irish & Celtic culture and the jewelry we create is based on Celtic design and symbolism, centuries old.

Claddagh Rings & Jewelry

The Claddagh is one of Ireland’s most popular rings and carries great symbolism – “Let love and friendship reign forever”.

The beautifully designed Claddagh Ring is quite distinctive with its two hands clasping a heart and surmounted by a crown. It is a monument to love and friendship with the two hands said to signify friendship, the heart representing love with the crown symbolizing loyalty.

How you wear a Claddagh Ring is of great importance; if worn on the right hand with the heart facing out, your heart has not yet been won. If worn on the right hand with the heart facing in, you are in love. And finally the Claddagh Ring can be worn as a wedding ring if worn on the left hand with the heart facing in; two hearts forever joined.

Celtic Rings & Jewelry

Celetic Jewelry dates back to 2000 B.C., evolving throughout the centuries and spreading across the world. Unique Celtic designs are still used today as an expression of one’s individuality.

The Celtic Knot is the most well known Celtic design, the beautiful simplicity of the triple knot symbolizes eternity and continuity. The interlace pattern never ends and is the key to Celtic knot work. Many Celetic Rings incorporate the Celtic Knot along with other Celtic symbols.

The Celetic Cross pre-dates Christianity and were first used by pagans to worship the sun. In pagan times the circle of the Celtic cross represented the sun, being the center of their lives. During the great conversion of many pagans to Christianity, Christian Philosophers adapted the Celtic Cross and thought the meaning of the circle to represent Christ, the center of Christianity.

Other Symbols such as the Celtic Spiral along with elements of the Ardagh Chalice and Book of Kells are at the heart of our Celtic Jewelry designs, as can be seen in the Celtic Warrior Ring.

Glencara is offering one lucky WAHM Resource Site reader a $50 gift certificate for a ring or jewelry piece of their choice.
