The intricate triskelion spiral has been a key motif in Ireland since pre-Celtic times, as seen in the large carvings outside of Newgrange, the prehistoric monument and tomb in County Meath. Honor Ireland's ancient past in our Irish Spirals Charm Necklace, which features a bold depiction of the triskelion pattern of three symmetrical spirals generating from one central point. A black cord completes the rugged look.
The word "triskelion" comes from Greek: "tri" means "three" and "skelos" means "leg." In many depictions across ancient Europe, the triskelion is actually three legs emanating from a human head in the middle. In prehistoric Irish culture, the triple spiral is thought to have many meanings, all of which honor the many triads in life: birth, death, afterlife; mother, father, child; earth, water, air; and so on. Once Christianity took hold, the spirals also came to signify the Holy Trinity.
Today, the emblem is not only a popular motif in jewelry and design, but it features prominently in the flags and emblems of many cultural and corporate associations, including the Irish Air Corps. This unisex pendant pays homage to the triskelion's lasting presence in Irish culture and art.
