A Claddagh ring sitting on the jewellers workbench. Beside this celtic ring sits a jewellers graver.
The graver is a tool which is very important in the craft of genuine claddagh rings.
This hand held tool is used the engrave the fine celtic details including the claddagh hands and also the detailed crown.
It is also used to set the heart shape gemstone securely in place.
We craft our claddaghs here in our Dublin workshop still using the traditional methods and tools of fine crafted claddagh jewelry.
