Claddagh ring
While we're used to the symbolic gold wedding ring, you can also choose a beautiful and symbolic Claddagh ring as your choice of band. The Gaelic ring depicts a pair of hands holding a heart topped by a crown, signifying "let love and friendship reign." A married person wears the ring on their left hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist to indicate that their heart has been taken.
