A very pretty vintage Irish Claddagh sterling ring with tiny diamonds.The Claddagh represents love, loyalty and friendship. The hands for friendship, heart for love, and the crown for loyalty.
The ring is sterling silver with a 14K gold overlay on the crown. The numerous tiny 1mm diamonds outlining the open heart, have flat top tables and are bead set. Though small...they still manage to give off a lovely sparkle.
The ring measures just slightly over a size 7 on my measuring wand. The ring face is about 3/8" (10mm) at the central point (base of heart to top of crown). There is some decorative piercing on the inside front of the shank.
It is marked 925 14K and there is an A with a slanted line and a c within a circle. I am uncertain as to when or by whom this ring was made. Great vintage condition.
