Irish Bridal Celtic Trinity Knot Tiara

Over the years, we’ve sold quite a lot of different tiaras at Celtic By Design.  None has proven as popular as this stunning Celtic Trinity Knot Tiara from Ireland.  This beautiful tiara in centered upon the Celtic Trinity Knot which is decorated with gorgeous Austrian crystals.  Also lavishly decorating the tiara is additional Celtic knotwork, which tapers off into another Trinity Knot at each side of the tiara.  Additional accent items include pearls.  The frontal design area measures approximately 4.5″ wide and 1″ tall.

Silver Rhodium Celtic Trinity Knot TiaraThis stunning Trinity Knot Tiara is perfect for any Irish wedding.  It is also extremely popular for both Proms as well as First Holy Communions.  The Trinity Knot is used extensively in Celtic works of art, such as the Ireland’s famous Book of Kells.  It is often used to represent three of something, such as the Blessed Trinity.  Trinity knots are also used often on Celtic crosses and other Irish and Celtic stone artifacts.

Available in Rhodium plated silver, this tiara positively gleams and compliments any hairstyle.  Rhodium is one of the most brilliant metals used in fine jewelry and is often used to plate over silver, white gold, and platinum.  It is known as the “noble metal”.  It is not subject to tarnishing (unlike non-plated sterling silver) and will maintain its brilliance for many, many years to come.  There is absolutely no reason that you should not plan on using this tiara as an heirloom in the future.

As if the Rhodium version is not stunning enough, our 18K Celtic Trinity Knot TiaraTrinity Knot tiara is also available in 18K gold plate.  The 18K gold version is identical to the rhodium plated one is every aspect except the final finish.  This fine 18K gold finish is not subject to tarnish either.  Even more impressive that that both are identically priced!
