I bought two rings during my visit to Ireland because I don't usually wear any and... I felt like it, heh. The twisty silver band is on my left hand; the claddagh ring is on my right. I'm not a huge fan of green stones and nearly bought this in purple, but I really liked the shade so went with this one. The twisty silver one doesn't stand for anything in particular, but the claddagh ring stands for love (the heart), friendship (the hands) and loyalty (the crown). Technically the way you wear it describes your romantic availability, although i doubt many people outside of Ireland would actually notice, know, or care! I wear mine on my right hand with the heart pointing outward to signify that no one loves me :P If my friend, Soo, were the one wearing it, she would also wear it on her right hand but with the heart pointing inwards, to signify that she's in a relationship. If my cousin were wearing it, she would wear it on her left hand, with the heart pointing outwards to signify that she's engaged. After her wedding in May, she would wear it on her left hand with the heart pointing inwards to signify that she's married. Both rings are pretty and I thought I'd better take a picture of them before I lose one... which I will undoubtedly do, eventually!
One of the first shots taken with my brand new macro lens I just got today. :D This is the ring my boyfriend Andrew gave me 2 Decembers ago. :)
