      Definition:"The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish ring, given in friendship or worn as a wedding ring. "

      "Sometimes authors of fiction and fantasy works have given the ring a somewhat altered or fanciful symbolism to better suit their purposes, such as writer/director Joss Whedon's use of the ring as a recurring plot device in the television series, Buffy The Vampire Slayer.[5] Whedon reinterpreted the meaning of the ring - when worn on the left hand, facing in, in the usual "married" configuration - as meaning, "the wearer is destined to be with his or her love forever."[5] While the actual meaning ascribed to the ring in this instance is incorrect,[1] it is used in much the same way as claddaghs have been used in more traditional roles in fiction: to provide an ongoing visual reference to the type of relationship that exists between two of the lead characters."

      It's the Claddagh ring. It's originally a Wedding Ring. And It's Irish.

        I saw at school the other week that my sose teacher was wearing one, and i got all excited and went kinda crazy and started going on about how Angel gave Buffy the ring and so on. Pretty sure i scared her, but it was cool

          NxD Slayerette you're british right? I have a claddagh ring that I never take off (personal thing nothing to do with Buffy!) which I bought from Hines jewellers in silver for about ?10 two years ago. That was a female version. Male versions are harder to come by though outside of specialist shops and Ireland. (A male version is exactly the same but bigger and chunkier)

          Also the way you wear is supposed to symbolise whether your heart is taken or not (see post above). I thought that how Angel told Buffy to wear it was correct. I was told that the expression that goes with it is "With these hands I take your heart and crown it with my love" - that was told to me by a friend from Galway, where they wear it the most. They do wear it as a wedding ring but also as a friendship ring and "committed couple" ring - hence the significance of Angel giving it to Buffy (committed couple) and Scott Hope also trying to give her the ring (friendship) which caused Buffy to freak out about it.

          Hope that helps.

              There was a lovely myth that went with the ring, about a young Irish blacksmith who wanted to marry a nobleman's daughter, as they ahd both fallen madly in love on first sight, but because of his low social status, the nobleman refused to give away his daughter. The ironmonger made a ring whilst on his travels, representing their friendship (the hands), his loyalty to her (the crown), and his love for her (the heart), and presented it to the woman. When her father saw the ring, he was so moved by the sentiments behind it, he allowed the marriage. *Melts inside*

                There is significance to how the ring is worn. Worn on the right hand, with the point of the heart toward your finger-tip, it means you are hoping for love -- worn with the heart pointed towad the hand, it means your heart belongs to another. And, worn on the left hand, it is technically a wedding band
