We held a naming contest for this acorn and oak leaf claddagh ring in June of 2015. The winning name was Dair Ríoga, pronounced dar ree-oh-guh, which is Irish Gaelic for Royal Oak. The person who suggested the name lives in a town named Royal Oak and was inspired by local stories of early explorers who named a massive tree, Royal Oak, after the earlier story about King Charles II who escaped capture by hiding in an oak tree. The original tale is still celebrated in England as Royal Oak Day.
Rob's newest interpretation of the traditional Irish ring (which represents love, loyalty and friendship) features an open heart at the center, crowned with 3 small acorns and held on the sides by acorns and oak leaves. The sides have an s curve detail which lead to a solid smooth shank (back).
The Dair Ríoga Claddagh measures just slightly over 1/2 inch at the top and tapers to 1/8 inch at the back. We offer free sizing, just select your desired size from the drop down menu above
