The Claddagh`s distinctive design features two hands clasping a heart, surmounted by a crown. The elements of this symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown). This wonderful, gold plated money clip features a Claddagh symbol on the front. The clip measures 2 inches long, 1 inch wide, with a strong clip to keep your money in place. It makes a great gift.
