The globally famous ring is associated with Claddagh, an Irish fishing village which is just outside the Galway’s old city walls. However, you have probably come across a range of weird and wonderful spellings when searching for the legendary ring online. We’ve seen numerous common misspellings which are easy enough to understand including Cladah, Claddah, Cladagh, Cladaugh, Clauddagh and Claddaugh which is arguably the most frequent mistake. These misspellings are actually understandable as they are only a letter or two away from being correct and sound a bit like Claddagh when said phonetically.
However, we’ve also seen some truly bizarre attempts such as Cladder, Claudia, Clauda and even Clatter (we’ve no idea how the last one in particular managed to slip through the net!). Irrespective of how you might spell it, the Claddagh Ring is representative of love, loyalty and friendship so bear this in mind when searching for one online, even if you end up looking for a Clatter Ring!
