The Meaning of the Mothers Claddagh... The mothers claddagh is an unassuming stylized mother and child embrace representative of the Madonna and child. Combined with a traditional Irish claddagh it is a testament to the enduring bond between a mother, her child, faith and their Irish heritage. A mother's love is immeasurable. She has great dreams for her children and she patiently stands by as she watches them chase them. She is there to see them soar and she catches them when they fall. She might not always be perfect but in the end she will always be there. She is a devoted mother. The Mothers Claddagh Jewelry Collection is exclusive to The Irish Jewelry Company.
