I know this is late, but I have not been online much. My 28th birthday was by far the best birthday I've ever had. My husband and I got matching tattoos. I have always loved Irish culture, and being that I have Irish in my blood It only makes since. There is an Irish tradition that when two people fall in love they give each other a ring. It's called The Claddagh Ring. The ring is given as a token of friendship, love, or marriage. The design and customs associated with it originated in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh, located just outside the city of Galway. The ring was first produced in the 17th century, though elements of the design date to the late Roman period. It is a heart symbolizing LOVE, a crown meaning LOYALTY, and the hands symbolizing FRIENDSHIP.
