Traditional Celtic Trinity knot dangle earrings in sterling silver
A classic Celtic design. These three-dimensional dangle earrings feature the traditional Trinity knot in sterling silver. Each measures 0.75 inch tall with sterling silver hooks.
The intricate Celtic knot (snaidhm Ceilteach in Scottish Gaelic) is a staple of Gaelic and Caledonian art for the past several millennia. For many in the Celtic Christian church, the Trinity knot (also called the Triquetra) symbolizes the Holy Trinity. For Wiccans and Neopagans, it represents the threefold nature of the Goddess as mother (creation), maiden (innocence) and crone (wisdom). While these delicate spirals and step patterns were common in Celtic art before Christian influences in the area, the designs soon found their way into early Christian artwork by the mid 400s AD.
