Citrine Gem: The history and tradition attached to citrine is not new, the yellow quartz has been touted as the gemstone for brightness, enlightenment and prosperity for centuries. Merchants in many parts of Asia even today, wear a citrine gemstone ring with the belief that it helps attract wealth. Ancient people believed that, the yellow gem captured the vibrant powers of the sun. Citrine is a sturdy gem and should have little problem looking after itself. Quartz formations in nature have withstood violent weather changes, volcanoes and earthquakes for millions of years. The heart shaped citrine gem in  your claddagh ring, would have been formed no less than 500 million to a billion years ago. Quartz in its purest form is white (colorless) but when, surrounding elements get mixed with quartz during the formation phase - the resulting crystal gets colored as a result of the elements. Crystal therapists recommend wearing citrine for improving concentration, self esteem and success in business or profession. On the other hand white quartz is believed to have a unique (metaphysical) property, it is believed that white quartz crystal enhances the power of all other crystals. Let's keep in mind that these 'qualities' are largely based on  customs and ancient folklore.

Claddagh Story: This would undoubtedly be the most meaningful citrine gemstone ring even in the most esteemed jewelry collection. Wear your claddagh ring and every style or jewelry expert, would recognize your sophisticated and refined taste for jewelry. The claddagh story dates back to four centuries and relates to small Irish fishing village named Claddagh - in Ireland. A young fisherman by the name of Robert Joyce was one day, captured on the high seas by pirates. Sold to a wealthy goldsmith Robert was forced to learn the trade, it was really not the drudgery of slavery that depressed the young man. Thinking about his beloved who he had to leave behind in the Cladagh village, Robert decided to make something that would truly express his love for her. Bettering his goldsmithing skills he soon started to craft a ring, one that would hold the true significance of his love for the woman in his life. Years later Robert Joyce was freed from slavery. Going back to his village while carefully securing the precious ring - he was truly overjoyed to see that his beloved was still waiting for him. He presented her the ring and it was to be their engagement ring, the couple was soon married and set up family in the village. As decades and centuries passed by, the story of the ring spread through the village and then beyond the shores of Ireland. The features of the ring which always intrigued viewers, soon began to be understood in their true perspective. The ring came to be known as the claddagh ring, named after the village in which Robert and his beloved lived. Often referred to as the hands, crown and heart ring - the ring symbolized love (heart), togetherness (hands) and loyalty (crown). Word of the touching story became known across the globe, the ring gained international reputation.

So how did the world's most meaningful jewel, come to be crafted to the highest standards by Kasilver in Thailand - we do owe you a clear explanation. The ring itself was first made (by Robert Joyce) in Ireland around 4 centuries ago. It was roughly 2 decades ago when, a team of Kaisilver experts landed in Ireland. With an objective to understand the story, tradition and significance behind the claddagh ring - the team visited historians, professors and also some of the most resourceful Irish libraries. We unearthed to claddagh history bit by bit,  thanks to the untiring efforts of the Irish people. A few months later,  the team left Ireland with fond memories of a wonderful country and its hospitable people. Piecing the information together once back in  Thailand Kaisilver jewelry experts, conducted long sessions with the finest jewelry artisans in Thailand.

We would like to leave that decision entirely to you assuring you that, the silver or gold claddagh ring would have the same significance and meaning. We did explain that the meaning of this historic jewel is embodied in the design features (hands, heart and crown) and not in  the metal or price tag.

One thing that would need to be kept in mind when picking a silver claddagh ring is that gems like emerald, opal, blue lapis and turquoise - might need some degree of care when the ring is being cleaned or polished. You can always discuss these issues with our experts, contact details are provided below. We will be glad to help even if you decide to purchase nothing from us. 

If you choose a claddagh silver ring with citrine or any gem of your choice, we would suggest that you do not go for a plating of any type on the silver. While jewelers would vouch for the anti-tarnish properties of various platings done on silver jewelry, the only truth is that ALL these platings will wear off after a while. This wear off will happen in patches, this also means that the tarnish would happen in  patches. Polishing and cleaning the ring in this condition, can be tough. A simpler and easier way is to leave, your silver claddagh un-plated. At the slightest signs of tarnish, use any jewelry grade cleaning lotion, fabric or cream to polish the silver ring and take away the tarnish. Remember to thoroughly rinse the ring after the polishing process - this will take away any chemical residue that the polishing agent, might have left on the silver or the gemstone. We generally do not recommend jewelry cleaning sprays. This is because sprays make it tough to protect the gemstone from coming into contact with the spray. Opinions differ on this but, our focus is on ensuring that your jewelry and gems stay safe.

Gems And Birthstones: We should mention here that the first cladagh ring made by Robert Joyce four centuries ago, did not have a gemstone. The ring was all gold which means that, the heart itself was crafted in gold. Kaisilver style experts decided that, the addition of a handpicked custom cut gem in a heart shape - could not only add to the beauty of the ring but also, to its meaning. For example we explained above that, the gem in the RG154 citrine gemstone ring is believed to attract wealth, prosperity and brightness - this for those who believe in the metaphysical powers of gems and crystals. There are similar properties attached to other gems, sapphire for example symbolizes sincerity and faith, diamond signifies eternal love etc. Even those who do not  believe in crystal therapy, their are 'favorite' gems and 'preferred' gems. When you order a Kaisilver gemstone claddagh ring in gold or 925 silver, there is no limitation on gemstone. Your choice is not restricted to the gems shown on our online resources.  

We come to one of the ancient beliefs that is followed even today - that of birthstones. Said to have originated from Aaron's breastplate (thousands of years ago), birthstones are today defined based on the month in which a person was born. The concept of birthstone rings has a much bigger following than that, compared with crystal therapy followers. The underlying belief in birthstones is that, we all make a special connect with a gem that happens to be our birthstone. It is a great idea order a claddagh gem ring with your birthstone, you can refer to the above birthstone charts and pick your special gem.
