    Not sure if I spelled this correctly but this came from my great great aunt. Very cool in that it doesn't have a crown so it was most likely given to a lover. Any information on the writing would be great!

      Hi, right spelling is claddagh.
      :-)
      I read: 925 TAXCO J.D STERLING
      So, made in Taxco, Mexico, by maker J.D
      I will search further later :-)

      This is a Fede/Gimmel ring, not a Claddagh ring.

      Here are more by Taxco:

      A claddagh ring is a variation and came later.

      "The Claddagh ring (Irish: fáinne Chladaigh) is a traditional Irish ring given which represents love, loyalty, and friendship (the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty)."

      "Fede rings are distinctive in that the bezel is cut or cast to form two clasped hands that symbolize faith and trust[7] or "plighted troth".[8] The Claddagh ring is a variation on the fede ring,[9] while the hands, heart, and crown motif was used in England in the early 18th century."

      That's cool! I actually was told by a pawn shop to that it was a Claddagh ring. Thank you very much Efesgirl!!

      You're welcome! You have yourself a very nice ring.
