Anatomical Claddagh Necklace

"The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish ring given as a token of love or worn as a wedding ring. The design and customs associated with it originated in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh, located just outside the city of Galaway. The ring was first produced in the 17th century during the reign of Queen Mary II, though elements of the design date to the late Roman period.

The Claddagh's distinctive design features two hands clasping a heart, and usually surmounted by a crown. The elements of this symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown).Claddagh rings may be used as friendship, relationship, eternity, engagement, or wedding rings depending on the intention of wearer and, in the case of a gift, of the giver. There are three traditionally accepted ways of wearing the ring which may signal someone's relationship status"

This is a twist on the traditional Irish ring by Lunar Opus worn as a necklace. The skeleton hands hold the anatomical heart and each carpal attach to findings with leather cord. The piece is joined with a lobster clasp.
The skeleton hands also form a heart shape with the joining of the thumbs on the top of the heart.
