Claddagh jewellery – handmade and ethical silver Florin coin
This beautiful little Claddagh design necklace has been meticulously crafted from an old English sterling silver Florin coin. The coin itself was minted in 1900’s from the finest silver. Not only does the silver ‘some-how’ feel warmer and more beautiful it also has the depth of its history behind it. This combined with the fact that it is more ethical and green to use than freshly mined and processed silver make it the perfect raw material for a contemporary take on a lovely traditional design.
Once flattened into the required shape, the hands, heart and crown design is roughly drawn onto the coin surface. This trace outline is carefully followed with an ultra fine piercing saw blade. The interior detail is revealed using the same hand saw and a pendant drill. The silver is also meticulously hand carved and engraved. The Claddagh / fáinne Chladaigh is traditionally an Irish ring given which represents love, loyalty, and friendship (the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty).
