This beautiful Celtic Trinity Knot is a traditional Celtic design crafted by Hamilton & Young jewlry Designers located on the Royal Nile in Edinburgh, home of Edinburgh’s gold and silversmiths since the 15th Century. With its “3” pointed design, it has become a leader of all Celtic endless knotwork (try to find its beginning and end). Being “endless,” it serves as a reminder that life and spiritual meaning are eternal. They are what makes us human and bonded with those who live in the “other world”. Used as both a Celtic and Christian symbol, The Trinity Knot symbolizes three inseparable essences formed from a single chord weaving gracefully into and out of itself.
The number three held a sacred meaning to the Celts, and the Trinity Knot in its eloquent simplicity , can be interpreted to symbolize many things. Examples include Father, Son and Holy Spirit; Heart, Soul and Mind (the three symbols that makes us human} ; Past, Present and Future (reminds us that life is an eternal journey); Maiden, Mother and Cronn (in reference to both the three stages in life and the three Moon Goddesses who look after us at each stage of our life}. Today, people are referring to it simply as a LOVE Knot.
A blend of Celtic and Christian cultures, this little knot has been found on carved stones throughout Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle Of Man, Cornwall and England.
