δαχτυλίδι από το Claddagh
Explanation:
Γεια σου Κατερίνα!

Το Claddagh είναι τοπωνύμιο της Ιρλανδίας. Από εκεί προέρχεται και το όνομα της τεχνοτροπίας/του σχεδίου. Εγώ θα σου πρότεινα να αφήσεις το τοπωνύμιο ως έχει. Δηλαδή να μεταφράσεις ως "δαχτυλίδι από το/την περιοχή Claddagh".

"Not far past the cobbled streets of Galway City, across the Wolfe Tone Bridge and upon the stretches of Galway Bay, lies the Claddagh. Today this ancient fisherman’s village is little more than a memory of the unique and idiosyncratic people who maintained a sovereign settlement here until the death of their last King, Martin Oliver, in 1972. Remarkably, the story of the Claddagh will likely be carried into posterity by the ring that bears its name.

The celebrated Claddagh ring, as we know it today, stands as a monument to love and friendship. The design is striking and unmistakable, two hands joined together to support a single heart, and upon it a crown. Its motto, not surprisingly, is 'let love and friendship reign'. Traditionally, the rings can be worn in three different manners, all declaring a different status in the quest for love. When worn on the right hand with the heart facing outward toward the nail, the ring signifies one whose heart is free. When the heart is facing inward, toward the knuckle of the right hand, it indicates that the heart is no longer available. And finally, if the ring is to appear upon the left hand, it traditionally means that love has been plighted."

Στο Διαδίκτυο, τουλάχιστον, δεν υπάρχει καμία ελληνική πηγή σχετικά με αυτό. Αν έχεις τη δυνατότητα, πρόσθεσε σε παρένθεση την έννοια του σχήματος του δαχτυλιού.

Μπορείς ακόμη και να το πεις \"δαχτυλίδι Claddagh\".
