Notes on the Celtic Trinity Love Knot
Though many see the religious meaning in the Trinity knot, its three corners reflecting the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit of the Christian Holy Trinity, this symbol has appeared primarily in books, sculptures, and metalwork of Celtic insular art. The knot usually appears with other artistic symbols, ornamental in nature, such as in the famous Book of Kells—a stunningly decorated manuscript of the four gospels from the New Testament. In modern day Ireland, it is customary for a man to give to the woman he loves a trinket that incorporates the Trinity knot. Of course, the engagement ring is the ultimate sign of his affection and devotion. In the context of marriage, the three corners of the knot stand for Love, Protection, and Honor.
A Brazen Love
The wide band on this engagement ring is the first clue to the sturdiness and breadth of this couple’s love. Their romance, symbolized by the Trinity love knots, rests on a secure foundation of virtues such as loyalty, kindness, and mutual respect. A square-cut diamond makes a particularly brazen declaration. This bride-to-be does not shy away from telling the truth, or facing her fears. She confronts situations knowing what she is getting into, and she makes smart decisions that benefit her and the people she loves. Her sense of kinship with the family-oriented, morally honorable culture of Ireland will guide her in raising a family of her own.
