Nature has bestowed us with a number of green gemstones and tourmaline, happens to be one of them. Before we get into the details of this green tourmaline claddagh ring, let us learn a bit more about tourmaline gems. Priced above peridot another green gem, tourmaline is to a certain extent more economical than emerald which is considered to be the most desired green gemstone. Having said that the fact is that, the gemstone in your green tourmaline claddagh ring, would be much more durable as compared to both peridot and emerald. This is simply because, tourmaline is harder and tougher than peridot, emerald and many other gemstones. 

The color of green tourmaline ranges from a light green to a more medium green color tone. It is quite common for gem lovers to prefer their green tourmaline with sufficient color saturation. So we are talking about a green tourmaline as shown in  the RG175 image, or a shade darker. The amazing thing about green tourmaline is that, the color is never too loud and very pale green tourmaline is generally avoided by most jewelers. This makes the gemstone suitable for gemstone rings worn by both, men and women.

Meaning Of Claddagh: While the gorgeous design, handpicked gems and fine workmanship are enough reasons to buy or wear a claddagh gemstone ring - the symbolism of the ring goes far beyond these external features. We provide a brief explanation here and suggest, that you access the complete Claddagh Ring Meaning Report - if you wish to get more information on, the historic background of the claddagh tourmaline gemstone ring. 

The story of the claddagh ring goes back to over 4 centuries and centers around, a humble fisherman turned slave named Robert Joyce. The young man headed out to the sea along with his fellow fisherman on an eventful day. The boat in which the fishermen were sailing, was attacked by pirates. After looting all that they could on the boat, the pirates sold the captives (fishermen) as slaves. Robert Joyce was sold to a wealthy goldsmith, who forced him to learn the trade. Robert lived in the village named Claddagh in Ireland, becoming a slave meant that he would be separated from his beloved who lived in the same village. 

Not being able to go back to his beloved, made Robert Joyce feel depressed and weak. The young man decided to do something that, would keep his morale up and feel stronger. Robert decided to use his newly acquired skills and make a ring for his beloved, he wanted the features of the ring to represent his true love for his beloved. He crafted a ring with features that had deep meaning and feelings. The ring depicted 2 hands holding a heart, a crown was placed on the heart. Historians tell us that, the hands were held out in friendship, the heart symbolized love and the crown signified loyalty that Robert has for his beloved. The young man dreamt of giving the ring to his beloved one day - when he would be freed from slavery. 

A few years later Robert Joyce was freed from the shackles of slavery, he headed for his village (Claddagh) closely guarding the ring that he had crafted. He was overjoyed to learn that, his beloved had been waiting for him all these years. She rushed into his arms and Robert gave her the ring. It is believed that, the couple were soon married and lived happily ever after.

Still on the topic of gemstones for your Kai Silver claddagh ring, me cannot leave out birthstones. It is always a great idea to wear a gem that, has some special meaning for you.

For a silver claddagh gem ring, we would suggest that you do not request for any plating to be done on the jewel. This is because time will wear off all platings done on silver, the wear off will happen in a patchy way and your ring would appear quite dull and worn out. If someone tells you that plating the claddagh silver ring with tourmaline, would act as an anti-tarnish treatment - they are not disclosing the complete truth. The fact is that the ring, would not tarnish only as long as the plating remains on it. Cleaning tarnish is not very difficult if, you do it just as it sets in. Allowing tarnish to stay on your claddagh silver ring for long, would make it more stubborn and difficult to clean. Un-plated silver rings that tarnish are fairly easy to clean. On the other hand, silver rings that experience a wear off on the plating, are quite tough to clean. So if you plan on ordering a silver tourmaline claddagh ring or any silver jewel for that matter, we suggest that you leave it un-plated. But if you still prefer to have your silver jewel, plated with gold or rhodium let us know and we can do it for you. Just clarifying that, such a plating would also tend to wear off.
