Encircled into a side groove with a sterling silver ring, this intricate shamrock Celtic knot necklace features a piece of Irish oak, recycled from musical instruments constructed by a local luthier. As a musician myself, I take enormous satisfaction in creating a necklace whose inherent wood has previously featured in a beautiful hand-made harp.
Known as King of the forest for its strength and longevity, the oak was sacred to the ancient Celts and is considered one of the three primary magical woods.
Celtic knots date back to the 3rd to 4th century B.C. Drawn in one continuous line, suggesting a continuous movement of time, they represent infinity and eternal life. They symbolize faith, declare love & unity between people, and even protect against evil spirits.
The shamrock is a small clover and was an important symbol to the ancient Irish druids because its three heart-shaped leaves represent the triad. The Celts believed that everything important in the world comes in threes, like the three ages of man, the phases of the moon, and the three dominions of earth, sea and sky.
The Shamrock is also credited with mystic powers as its petals stand up when a storm is approaching, warning people of the impending danger.
This shamrock Celtic knot necklace is the perfect gift for anyone with Irish heritage or for someone who resonates with the Celtic myths and traditions of the natural world. This is a unique addition to anybody’s jewellery collection.
