Trinity Knot

Trinity Knot

The Triquetra, more commonly known as the Trinity Knot, is a Celtic symbol of ancient origin and one of the earliest symbols of Christianity, predating the crucifix by hundreds of years.  The triquetra is most simply represented by three interlocking circles.  Often the triquetra is found illustrated with three fish in a similar shape.  This three in one concept could have symbolized earth, air an water, or mind, body and sould.  When Christianity was introduced to Ireland, the Triquetra became known as the Trinity Knot which symbolized three  persons in one God:  The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

You will see many Trinity Knots in Celtic/Irish Jewellery in the form of necklaces and rings.
