Melanie's Claddagh Ring...

 

IRISH TRADITION:

The Claddagh Ring: The perfect gift for a friend or loved one.

The ring, depicting two hands clutching a heart, complete with a crown, epitomizes the expression of lasting love and eternal friendship. The heart symbolizes love, the hands friendship and the crown loyalty or fidelity. Wear this ring on your right hand with the heart facing outwards and the world will know your heart has not yet been won. Wear it on the right hand with the heart facing inwards and it shows you have friendship and love under consideration. But worn on your left hand with the heart turned inwards it means two loves have joined forever.

 

Melanie has stayed true to this Irish Tradition by wearing this ring on her right hand and facing it outwards. There has been a few other occasions where she has wore it the same way... Miami Spice, Cosmopolitan article, and the Frank Skinner show.

This, obviously, could mean absolutely nothing. But it is interesting that every time the ring is shown, she is wearing it outward on her right hand. Melanie may not know about the tradition, but who knows...

 

 

Melanie's ANGEL tattoo...

 

Melanie's reasons for getting it: (From The Sun, May 26th)

"Sporty Spice Mel C has had 'Angel' tattoed on her tummy. She said: 'It really hurt - but it was worth it.'"

"You know when you feel there's an angel watching over, you know, and like recently I lost somebody very close to me, and it's just sort of like, just to say, you know, I know you're there, kind of thing."

(Very sweet, Melanie...)
