What kind of Claddagh ring should I buy and where should I buy it?

My girlfriend lost her Claddagh ring (it was a gift from a previous significant other). We are not yet at the point in our relationship where we are talking about marriage, otherwise we would both discuss what kind of engagement ring she'd like, etc.
I would like to replace the missing Claddagh ring with another one as a surprise, since wearing one is very important to her. I know her ring size already.
Aside from the metal type (sterling silver or white gold), what qualities or designs should I look for? I live in a big enough city to find local places that make/sell them, what should I look for when I visit these shops? If I'm buying online, are there any especially trustworthy or reliable sites I should check out? Advice for any size of budget is welcome!
