Triskele Sterling Silver Ring
The Triskele is a common symbol used in ancient Celtic design and is especially associated with the Isle of Man where the ancient College of Druids was centered. The emphasis is on the numeral three which for the Celts symbolized the principles of creation, preservation and destruction embodied also as the triple goddess, maiden, mother and crone, and the phases of the moon.
The triskele (aka triskelion) motif was found at a site in what is now Ireland, which dates to circa 3200 BCE. This predates the arrival of the Celts in the region. Just before the 5th century, the triskele became incorporated into Celtic Christianity, the three spirals representing the Holy Trinity.
