Dainty sterling silver Celtic/Irish Triquetra Protection Knot earrings. Post back. These tiny little studs are meant to replicate an early trinity/triquetra knot.
The Celtic Trinity symbolizes the "Three". It consists of one continuous knot having no beginning or end. The circle around the triquetra signifies spiritual unity & is a protection circle which cannot be broken. Traditionally, the Triquetra/Trinity Knot symbolized "The Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit." Modern day translations are "Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow" or "Grandmother, Mother & Daughter" with the eternity knots linking them together.
