|Sterling Silver Celtic Triskelion Pendant [ST] |
'Triskelion Pendant' - Sometimes spelt triskellion, and also known as triskele, from the Greek meaning 'three-legged', our attractive sterling silver pendant incorporates the Celtic triple spiral motif. The graceful elegance of its gentle curves forms a beautiful piece of Celtic jewellery, with both a modern and traditional feel. It comes with a sterling silver chain in a choice of lengths.
Familiar as a Christian symbol, the triple spiral represents the Holy Trinity of The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. An example of the triple spiral goes back much further, though, to Neolithic times, where it can be found carved into a rock in County Meath, Ireland, and is thought to have represented the earth, sea and sky.
The spiral form of a triskelion is sometimes described as a solar symbol.
