Triangular knot earrings

"This knot is also known as a Triquetra, a Celtic symbol of the Triple Goddess. The triple sign was a common symbol in celtic myth and legend and the idea of three in one is a possible reason why Christian beliefs such as that of the Trinity were so easily adopted by the Celtic people. The sign represented the three domains of the earth, sea and sky, the trinity of mind, body and soul and many other triple concepts as well."
