About Celtic Symbolism
The ancient Celts, who lived in Britain and Ireland from 500 B.C. to 400 A.D., believed their Indo-European symbols and signs to hold meaningful power in their lives. The meaning behind these ancient symbols has been passed on through the generations with the help of oral tradition and written records, allowing the heritage to endure.
When Christianity arrived in Ireland in the fifth century, the Celtic cross became as important as the ancient symbols and today, the crucifix and Holy Trinity feature strongly in our symbolism and jewellery.
About Celtic Earrings and Jewellery
This style of jewellery dates back to between 400 B.C. and 550 A.D. when Celtic craftsmen used silver and gold to create beautiful jewellery adorned with Celtic symbols.
Although the process of manufacturing Celtic jewellery has adapted over time, the representation and symbolism of the ancient symbols remains prominent in the modern pieces. This is why charming and symbolic Irish Celtic jewellery is adored the world over.

The gold cross earring – either stud or drop – is a magnificent holy communion gift, or in fact for any occasion for a spiritual or religious person.
Also known as an Irish Love Knot or a Celtic Love Knot, the Trinity Knot is an ancient symbol of the Celts. But what is its meaning? And how has it become a symbol of love?
This iconic symbol – also known as a trefoil knot or a triquetra – has three interconnected “leaves” making an eternal form that cannot be untied. For this reason, in modern day Ireland, the Trinity or Lovers Knot is a traditional symbol that is exchanged by sweethearts to show love and devotion.
The Claddagh ring, or An Fáinne Cladach as it is known in the Irish language, is a symbol of love, friendship, and loyalty. “Cladach“, means rocky beach or shore, meaning the symbol is named after the West of Ireland, where it originates.
Looking closely at the Claddagh, you will see three distinct motifs:
- The heart represents love
- The crown represents loyalty
- The hands represent friendship.
