This Friendship bracelet is an authentic replica of one recovered from one of Spain’s Treasure Galleons. The most interesting feature of this bracelet is the clasp, which depicts two hands joined together and is representative of an ancient design known as “FEDE”. The “Claddagh” rings from Ireland, showing two hands holding a heart between them, were based on this design. Both designs symbolize love and commitment and were given by one lover to another to symbolize their love and to remind them of each other when apart.
