Celtic Symbol Silver Brooch
Many versions of the invasion of the Celts in to Great Britain abound, but the Celtic symbols are well documented. The Celts were warriors who painted themselves with symbolism and included symbolism as a strong part of their lives. This particular symbol is called the Triquetra - original meaning simply triangle. It has shown up in many of the illuminated manuscripts like the original Book of Kells...Three corners symbolises the Trinity influences, the centre of the heart and the three sides with unbroken lines suggesting an unbreakable union.
So, is that not romantic ! This sweet brooch is marked "925" for silver. It measures 4cms at each side with a dark blue faux sapphire in the middle. There is a roll in catch to the back. It is likely to be from the 1970's - 1980's. In excellent condition, and gift boxed by Vintageonline.
