A Celtic ring which adorns a cross is a nice gesture and has a wonderful meaning. Crosses have long since been a part of Irish history and culture. Despite what they seem to represent, however, their significance should not be limited to religion. These symbols have long symbolized the gap between heaven and earth. Crosses came to be seen as a way from one world to another. Also, because they have four points, they also came to signify the four elements of fire, earth, air and water. Since most people can relate to at least one of these elements, the cross would be an understood symbol.
Another impressive token in Celtic history is the trinity knot otherwise known as the triquetra. This shape is recognizable because of it’s three points. It looks similar to a triangle in appearance, yet it also has a fluidity that is apparent in it’s construction.
There are many different interpretations of the three points of the triquetra and can be symbolic for nearly anyone. Some common meanings attributed to the tri-symbol are; Father, Son and Holy Ghost, past, present and future, as well as, power, intellect and love. There are other meanings for the emblem and they can be seen on this page that describes them in a bit more detail.
