Claddagh rings are worn as friendship, engagement or wedding rings depending on how they are worn. Friendship: by placing the ring anywhere on your right hand. Engagement: by placing the ring on the third finger of your left hand with the heart pointing outwards. Wedding: by placing the ring on the third finger of your left hand with the heart pointing inwards towards your heart. Boru has designed a range of Claddagh rings called "New York". The elements of the traditional Irish Claddagh remain very much part of the composition but the design of the crown has been based on the art deco design of the Chrysler Building which dates back to the 1930s.
