This beautiful Irish Trinity Knot necklace blends a classic Irish symbol with a modern shape for a wonderfully contemporary and fresh design.  The Trinity knot is an ancient Irish symbol that holds a variety of different meanings.  It is often referred to as the triquetra.  It is used to represent the Holy Trinity by some, and also believed to stand for the three promises of a relationship – love, honor, and protect.  It is also used to represent Land, Sea, and Sky.

The trinity knot is found in a variety of insular art, such as the Book of Kells and other famous Celtic works.  The exact origin of this symbol is lost to history, but the grouping of special things into threes remains popular, just has it has for thousands of years.

This lovely necklace is made in Ireland.  Featuring a CZ encrusted heart entwined with a gold plated heart, for a wonderful two-toned presentation.  Comes beautifully gift boxed for giving.

Happy St. Brigid’s Day

St. Brigid was born around 451 A.D. to a pagan father and a Christian slave mother. It was predicted by a Druid that she would do great things. Brigid’s father kept Brigid and her mother as slaves. She spent her earlier life cooking, cleaning, washing and feeding animals on her father’s farm. Brigid was inspired by the teachings of St. Patrick and she became a Christian.

At the age of eighteen she stopped working for her father. She decided that she would spend her life working for God by looking after sick, elderly and poor people. At this time she became one of the first nuns in Ireland. St. Brigid went on to establish many convents all over Ireland.

St. Brigid is the patroness of dairy maids, infants, midwives, blacksmiths, poets, nuns and students.

On one of her travels, St. Brigid went to visit a dying pagan chieftain  She started to weave a cross from some rushes on the floor. He asked her what she was doing and she told him about Christ and the meaning of the Cross. The chieftain changed his faith and was baptized.

The making of a “St. Brigid’s Cross” is a custom of St. Brigid’s day. This cross is usually made out of reeds or rushes. It is then hung on the front doors of homes and left in place all year, to be burned and replaced with a newly-woven cross on the next St. Brigid’s Day.

Two wonderful ways to celebrate the life of this extraordinary woman is with our St. Brigid’s gold necklace, or with a beautiful Belleek Cross.
