Celtic Stone Earrings- Wee Elongated Trinity with Black Onyx
Long and slim Trinity knot earrings with oval Black Onyx drop set in hallmarked 925 Sterling Silver.
Significance of the Triquetra/Trinity Knot:
‘Three’ is an important concept in Celtic mythology e.g. the existence of three material domains (earth, sea and sky), three spiritual worlds (earth, heaven and the underworld) and ‘triple goddesses.’ Triquetra/trinity symbols and triangular knots depict this three-fold worldview.
Significance of Black Onyx:
A hard stone with a solid, lacquer-like finish, the black onyx is commonly found in Brazil, China, Madagascar, the UK and the US. It has been used in hardstone carving, pottery and jewellery for centuries and was popular as a ‘mourning stone’ during the Victorian era. In some cultures, it is prized for its protective properties.
