While still used as wedding rings, the Claddagh ring can now be worn as a sign of friendship or loyalty. The Claddagh ring's meaning generally depends on how it is being worn. If you're single you would wear your Claddagh ring on your right ring finger with the heart pointed away from you. When you wear a Claddagh on your left ring finger, it's a sign that you've found the one you'll be spending the rest of your life with. Wear the ring with the heart facing out to show that you're engaged.
It is said to be very bad luck for a person to purchase a Claddagh ring for themselves. It must be given or received as a gift.
