A triquetra is a triple-pointed Celtic knot with many different meanings. In Ireland, it is often given as a gift between lovers as a symbol of everlasting love.
In Wiccan or Pagan beliefs, it is a symbol of things that come in threes, such as the division of the world into land, sea and sky. It is also known to represent the triple moon goddess, where the Maiden, Mother and Crone, each representing a different phase of a woman's life, corresponds to a different phase of the moon.
In Christianity, it is a symbol of the Trinity of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
These pretty earrings have two interlocking triquetras, a smaller one within a larger one, creating intriguing complexity with a simple concept.
An antiqued finish gently highlights the interweaving ribbons of the knot.
