Solid Sterling Silver
These beautiful earrings in sterling silver will attract the eye of any lover of Celtic tradition.
Derived from the Greek word "Triskeles" meaning "three legs", the Triskele or Triple Spiral is a complex ancient Celtic symbol. Often referred to by many as a Triskelion can be seen at the entrance of Newgrange, Ireland. The Triskele gained popularity in its use within the Celtic culture from 500BC onwards.
The triskele can be thought to represent motion as all three arms are positioned to make it appear as if it is moving outwards from its center. Movement, or motion, is believed to mean energy and growth.
The symbolic significance of the three arms of the triskele include: spirit-mind-body, mother-father-child, past-present-future and power-intellect-love.
Earrings measure 3/4" X 3/4" in size.
