The Irish often give a special promise ring, known as the Claddagh ring. There are several ways to wear your Irish promise ring, all depending on exactly how you interpret the promise ring that you are wearing.
If you wear the Irish promise ring on your left hand, this means you have vowed to love and to be faithful to your partner.
If you wear the Irish promise ring on the right hand with the heart facing out, then the person wearing the ring has a heart that is not taken at the moment.
If you wear the Irish promise ring on the right hand with the heart turned in towards you, this means that your heart is taken.
