Knots to Talk About
The Trinity knot in Irish culture alludes to the eternal nature of the human spirit. One can find no beginning or end in the loops of the knot just as there is no start or finish to a persons identity he or she is the sum of multiple elements at once both multi-faceted and whole. For a gentleman who gives his significant other jewelry featuring the Trinity knot the tri-cornered shape might indicate his wish to love honor and protect her. However many individuals prefer to interpret the significance of this triad in their own way.
The Future as an Open Field
Emeralds were worn by members of royal families in Babylon and Egypt as long ago as 1300 BC.

Green the hue of springtime reflects the themes of rebirth and renewal. Some even believe that emeralds possess fortune-telling powers. A woman who dons these earrings might view the three loops of the Trinity knot as representative of the past present and future and also regard the emerald-like stones as extra protection from any fate that is not personally fulfilling and professionally successful.
