Do you like to wear jewelry that has meaning? These earrings represent a rich history of Celtic Tradition. A triskelion or triskeles is a motif consisting of a triple spiral exhibiting rotational symmetry. The spiral design can be based on interlocking Archimedean spirals, or represent three bent human legs. The triple spiral is found in artifacts of the European Neolithic and Bronze Age with continuation into the Iron Age, especially related to Celtic traditions. It is believed to represent three Celtic worlds; the spiritual world, the present world and the celestial world. It also represents forward motion to reach understanding.
As triskelions are associated with the three worlds you will often see them accompanied with moons and stars from our Celestial World. These earrings are made of sterling silver open textured circles and triskelions and hang from small circular moons on posts. Wear them with our Triskelion Moon Pendant, Item CEL00001, sold separately.
