Meaning of Design
Triple Knot - the beautiful simplicity of the triple knot symbolises eternity and continuity. The interlace pattern never ends and is the key to Celtic knot work. In Christianity it is used to represent the Holy Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Claddagh - the legend tells of a sailor from Claddagh in Galway, captured by pirates a week before he was to be married. He learned his goldsmith skills while enslaved and made this ring for his beloved. The heart symbolizing their love, hands for friendship and crown for loyalty.
Shamrock - is without doubt the most identifiable symbol of Ireland. It was used by Saint Patrick, the patron saint to explain the Holy Christian Trinity. The word comes from the Gaelic "seamrog" meaning little clover and is worn the world over on 17th March - St Patrick's Day
Harp - is the oldest official symbol of Ireland. Used on Irish coins, state seals and official documents. The harp or lyre represented is the small portable type used by Celtic Minstrels, reminding us of the rich legacy of the bard.
Spiral - representing the Newgrange Tomb in the Boyne Valley Co. Meath. Older than Stonehenge and the pyramids of Egypt, this magical ancient burial ground was built by Neolithic communities about 5000 years ago. In this new age many people have adopted this symbol for its connection to the past
Celtic Crosses - Throughout Ireland & Scotland, the celts crafted these magnificent symbols in stone. Celtic Crosses pre-date Christianity and were first used by pagans to worship the sun. In pagan times the circle of the celtic cross represented the sun, being the center of their lives. It was not untill the 4th century AD when it was introduced by the first Christian Roman Emperor Constantine, that the Celtic Cross was used to represent Christ's victory. During the great conversion of many pagans to christianity, Christian Philosophers adapted the Celtic Cross and thought the meaning of the circle to represent Christ, the center of Christianity.
