Samantha "Joyce" Quick says:

i always wear my ring since i was a senior in high school. I recieved my first one as a gift from my aunt when she visited Ireland. She even bought the ring at a Joyce store. When I was single I wore my ring on my right ring finger pointing out. (When my finger shrunk in the winter I had to wear it on my middle finger though). When I started dating my boyfriend, I turned it around and faced my heart. When my husband proposed, my left hand was occupied with the engagent ring he bought me so I continued to wear it on my right ring finger facing my heart. I am married now and still wear it that way. I know its not the traditional way but I do wear it every day. When my wedding ring gets sent in for cleaning I do switch to put my claddagh ring kn my left facing me until I get it back. I love the claddagh ring!
