Claddagh Ring: How to wear it

You can wear it on either your left or right hand, depending on the message you are trying to convey. If it is placed on your left hand with the heart facing outwards it's an indication that you are engaged. When the heart is on the inside of this hand, the ring is a sign that you are married.

However, if you wear the ring to the right with your heart facing outwards, it indicates that you are single and in search of love. Wearing the ring with your heart facing inwards on the left signifies that you're currently in a serious relationship. Of course, it is possible to choose to ignore these rules and wear the ring however you prefer.

This ring may also serve as an engagement ring and can be a part of a meaningful ritual for the wedding ceremony. Your partner can move the ring from their right hand to the left to symbolize your wedding day.

Finally, both men and women can wear this Irish ring. Men prefer Claddagh rings with bigger designs and more substantial bands.
