Trinity Knot Earrings
Rhodium Plated Trinity Drop Earrings. Many centuries ago, in an Irish monastery, the Celtic Knot was created on the pages of illuminated manuscripts. From dawn till dusk, monks would work with infinite care to illustrate the gospels, stopping only to eat and pray. This patience and devotion produced the richly decorated knot work which today is istantly recognizable as Irish. Celtic culture is interwoven with stories, and the Celtic Knot tells a tale of enduring love. It reflects the convergence of mind, body and spirit- a message which is powerful and mystical today as it was in those ancient times. Today the Book of Kells remains a testimony to the artistry which produced this lasting legacy. The twists and turns of the Celtic knot symbolise the timeless nature of the human spirit. With no beginning and no end, this intricate decoration is a sign of eternal life and never ending love. The gift of a Celtic Knot pays homage to the skills of those craftsman from a bygone era, and to an Irish ancestry.
