Claddagh Ring.
 

The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish design originating in a fishing village called Claddagh just outside Galway town, now swallow up's urban sprawl. The design as can be seen is two hands presenting a crowned heart.

Claddagh rings were widely worn by woman in the west of Ireland, the ring was often the most valuable article the family possessed. They were usually handed down from mother to daughter. The tradition was that if the girl wore the ring on her right hand with the heart pointed towards the nail, she was open to offers of marriage. And if she wore it on the left hand with the heart pointed away from the nail she was engaged to be married.
