In an Irish monastery many centuries ago the Celtic Trinity Knot was created on the pages of illuminated manuscripts. Stopping only to eat and pray, monks would work with infinite care to illustrate the gospels. This patience and devotion produced the richly decorated knot work which today is instantly recognisable 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 as 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 symbolises 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.
These beautifully crafted earrrings have a silver plated Trinity Knot perched above a synthetic pearl. The gift of these Celtic Knot earrings pay homage to the skills of those craftsman from a bygone era and to an Irish ancestry.
