The 14KT Gold Vermeil Claddagh Necklace has a small circle with an arced cubic zirconia-studded upper half. Similarly, in the lower half seats a plain Gold Vermeil Claddagh motif. The Claddagh with, its two hands holding a crowned heart, is an ancient Irish symbol of love, loyalty, and friendship. Likewise, the piece has a 925 sterling silver base, coated with a thick layer (2.5 mm) of genuine 14k gold. This necklace also features a beautiful and delicate chain (18” + 2″ extension) with an easy-to-use lobster catch. All features combined make this necklace a meaningful gift.
