Lets forget that the claddagh ring is an Irish tradition (yes I’m wearing one right now) and remember that we have no way of really telling if a member of the opposite (or same) sex is single. Wouldn’t it be fabulous to walk up to someone at an event and not only tell if they are married but if they are single as well because let’s be honest, in this day and age just because there isn’t a ring doesn’t mean the guy is single.
How many times have you walked up to a guy, chatted and started to like him only to find out he has a ”baby momma ” and three bundles of joy at home. (WHEW you dodged that bullet!)
There are four different ways to wear a claddagh ring that represents four different… phases of life and both men and women can wear them. (Men typically have a thick band with the design engraved.)
- Single – Wear it on your right hand with the point of the heart towards your fingertips
- In a relationship – Wear it on your right hand with the point of the heart toward your wrist
- Engaged – Wear it on your left hand with the point of the heart towards your fingertips
- Married – Wear it on your left hand with the point of the heart towards your wrist
Drastically reducing the “I’m engaged” embarrassing responses and mortified looks we give for not having realized before approaching. Also, let’s just talk about saving time from talking to Mr./Ms. Wrong when you could be talking to Mr./Ms. Right. Although you may miss out on a funny life story or two down the road we are a society of “not enough time”.
The great thing about claddagh rings is that there is a variety of styles to choose from all of which could be worn on a regular basis without looking silly or over the top.
If you aren’t a fan of the claddagh ring you could always check out the mysingleworld wrist bands however apart from certain events I don’t really think it’ll “catch on” as socially acceptable.
HERE’S TO HOPING FOR THE SINGLES OF THE WORLD!
