Four tiny shamrocks interspersed with double Trinity knots create this Celtic sterling silver bracelet. The name 'shamrock' comes from the Irish name "seamrog" or little clover. The "dear little shamrock" has been a symbol of Ireland since the 18th century and a registered trade mark by the government of Ireland. Used as a symbol of Christianity in Ireland, Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint used it as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity. It is beloved across the world as a mark of Irish heritage and is worn by millions on March 17th. St. Patrick's Day!
The Triquetra predates Christianity and was the Celtic symbol of the Goddess Odin. The symbol decorates our illuminated manuscripts such as The Book of Kells and is found on Celtic crosses and Celtic stones all around the country. The Trinity Knot has been adopted from ancient Celtic art by Christianity as a symbol of the Holy Trinity; Father, Son & Holy Spirit. To the Celts it is believed to have meant many things; mind, body, spirit; earth, sea and sky and beginning, middle and end - continuity. The Trinity Knot is the most well known and loved of all Celtic knots and in modern times has been given as a token of promise; to love, to honour and to protect.
