and has been used to refer to a variety of three-cornered shapes
but has been evolved into a symbol of depth.
Often seen in the Book of Kells,
some have surmised that because of its frequent use
It has been a part of folk lore predating the creation of the ancient texts.
It appears in stone and metal on crosses,
markers, jewelry and other artifacts
through-out Celtic history.
Because of the Christian Influence
and their lore concerning the Trinity,
many have attributed the shape to represent:
“The Father, Son and Holy Ghost”,
but it could easily represent any lore that embraces the Three:
Parents and child;
the three phases of human existence:
Youth, Middle Age and the Elderly;
Maiden, Mother, Crone;
Green Man, Hunter, Sage.
a number of Manifestation in Creation.
In recent years
it has been popularized within the Pagan and Wiccan communities,
for they too love the manifestation of Three.
It has even been embraced in the Television series “Charmed”;
the Triquetra is embossed on the Grimoire of the Three Sisters.
The Triquetra Earrings represent the Trinity,
the manifestation of Three and the integrity of one purpose through love.

the idea of the Trinity in its many forms.
