The calladagh ring is an ancient Irish design dating back to over 300 years. The ring is named after a small fishing village in Ireland called the Caladagh, and the first ring is believed to be made by an Irish slave by the name of Robert Joyce. Calladagh rings belong to a group of rings referred to as the 'faith rings'. Kaisilver calladagh rings retain all the meaning and significance of the first calladagh ring that was made over 300 years ago.

The History Of The Calladagh Ring
Tracing the history of calladagh rings takes us back in time to a small Irish fishing village named the calladagh. Over 300 years ago, in this tiny pretty village lived a young fisherman by the name of Robert Joyce. One day, the boat in which young Robert was sailing was attacked by pirates and all the captives, as was common in those days, sold as slaves. Robert Joyce was sold to a wealthy goldsmith and learnt the trade from his master.

Robert was forced to live the hard life of a slave but never forgot his beloved who was left behind in the calladagh village. He started to make a ring which he would present to his beloved once freed from slavery. Some years later Robert Joyce was freed and returned to his village, he was overjoyed to meet his beloved and gave her the ring that he had made. The ring was a symbol of love that even the harsh conditions of slavery could not diminish. The couple were soon married and lived happily ever after. This ring came to be called the Irish calladagh ring and is the first calladagh ring recorded in history.

The Meaning Of The Calladagh Ring
We have described the history of the calladagh ring and will now explain the significance of Calladagh rings. This ring depicts two hands holding a heart with a crown placed on top of the heart. To understand the meaning of calladagh rings we need to first explain the meaning of the main features of the ring. The heart in the ring stands for love and this could be love between mother and child, husband and wife, brother and sister or even between friends. The hands in the caladagh ring are extended in friendship and togetherness. This symbolizes friendship through good times and bad and even when friends are geographically thousands of miles apart. The crown on this Irish ring shows loyalty and can today mean, loyalty between husband and wife, or between friends and can also be extended to mean loyalty and honesty between parents and children or other family members.

Calladagh Ring, Design Variations
There have been a few variations in design of Calladagh rings and Kaisilver provides all options as, each ring is individually made and not mass produced. Some versions of the calladagh ring excluded the crown from the design and the emphasis on the meaning of the ring was given to friendship and love. Another design for the same ring which did not become very popular was to have two hearts between the hands. The design looked odd and most jewelry lovers did not care much for the design thus, two hearts calladagh rings are hardly seen these days. Another very good design concept would be two have two gemstones in the heart, this is not similar to the double heart calldagh ring. The ring has just one heart between the hands but, two gems are custom cut to form a complete heart and set in the ring. This is a very intricate process but Kaisilver provides this option as, we have some of the world's finest craftsmen working on our jewelry. The two gemstones set in the heart can be the birthstones of mother and daughter or friends or husband and wife.

This makes the ring a great choice for a wedding or engagement ring, you can choose to add a few diamonds in the crown to make the ring a spectacular special occassion ring.

Kaisilver Creates The World's Best Rendition Of The Calladagh Ring
An expert team of Kaisilver designers and craftsmen spent several months researching the meaning and history of the calladagh ring. Valuable inputs from this research were used as inputs in finalizing the specifications for our ring. The ring retains the meaning of the original ring that was made more than 300 years ago. Many additional features were added to the original design to enhance the meaning of this stunning ring. Some of the world's finest craftsmen work on each Kaisilver ring and each ring is fully custom made. You will notice the stunning details on the hands and fingers on our ring, the celtic design on the band of the ring is another highlight.

With direct and preferrential access to over 200 million carats of gemstones, we provide you a complete choice of gemstones for your Calladagh ring. You can choose the gemstone of your choice or decide to set your birthstone in the ring. The gemstones we use are not low grade reject gems that are normally peddled in mass produced jewels. Every ring has a gem stone that is handpicked and custom cut by our experts. You have a choice of two gemstone sizes (shown in the table below) and in the case of gems like, emerald, sapphire, ruby and tanzanite different grades of the gemstone can also be selected. You can choose the gemstone grade based on your budget and might want to go for the better grade when buying your calladdagh ring for a special occassion, like a wedding or engagement.

Since all our jewelry is high end, we ensure that your Calladagh ring has a design that is sturdy and durable and at the same time does not appear clumsy and bulky. The ring now comes with a good gold weight of around 8 to 10 grams and this is almost 50% to 60% more as compared to what, others would offer for similar designs. The good gold weight ensures that the ring does not bend and dent easily, the gemstone is also very firmly mounted with gold all around the border. Prong settings are not very durable as the prongs tend to stick in pockets and other places. This causes them to gradually open up and loosen the gemstone, you then risk the gemstone dropping off the mounting.

The fact that each Kaisilver calladagh ring is fully custom made means that, you get an unmatched degree of customization and flexibility. The design can be modified as per your requirements and the rings can be ordered in all ring sizes. The ring will be customized to have a gold weight that is proportional to the ring size and our experts will let you know if your ring size requires a gold weight that exceeds the weights mentioned here. You can also choose the gemstone of your choice, with the very interesting option of combining two gems in the same ring. In this option, a very intricate process is followed where two gems are skillfully cut to form a complete heart shape when set next to each other. This is a very unique and interesting choice where two birthstones can be combined in the same ring.

Calladagh Rings, Designer Tips
Choosing white or yellow gold: This would generally be based on personal preference, however you need to consider the color of the gemstone too. A deep and dark colored gemstone like a very deep blue sapphire, would appear almost black in white gold. This is because the color contrast would be highlighted between the dark gemstone and the bright color of the gold. If you are thinking of an aquamarine calladagh ring or the same ring with a blue topaz gemstone, white or yellow gold would look great. Our experts can advise you regarding choosing gold color based on your gemstone preference.

14k or 18k gold: Your Kaisilver calladagh ring can be ordered in 14k or 18k gold. We would like to mention here that 14k gold is much harder than 18k gold. A ring that is to be worn very often would therefore be more durable if made in 14k gold. We offer both 14k and 18k gold as an option, so the final choice is always yours.

Special occassion rings: If you are looking for calladagh ring as a wedding or engagement ring consider the diamond option for the crown. This does not increase the price of the ring by a big amount as the additional amount to be paid is just 100 U.S$. The diamonds include 1 piece of size 2.5mm round and another 2 pieces of size 1.5mm round. In the case of rubies, sapphires, emeralds and tanzanite, the higher grade gemstone would be a great option.

Etchings inside the band: You can request for an etching of a name or some other word to be done inside the band of your calladagh ring. This is done at no extra charge to you, but please restrict the word to around 8 characters (alphabets including spaces) so that the etching will be clearly visible.
