Triquetra Earrings - Double Trinity with Amethyst Centre
Double Trinity knot with Amethyst centre set in hallmarked 925 Sterling Silver.
Significance of 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 the balance, harmony and stability of this three-fold worldview.
Significance of Amethyst:
A violet or purple variety of quartz, the amethyst has been used in jewellery since Ancient Egyptian times. Associated with Bacchus, the god of wine, by the Ancient Greeks, it was believed to prevent intoxication. These days it frequently adorns the fingers of Bishops and Royals as well as the Royal Crown jewels.
