Celtic Necklaces & Irish Claddagh Pendants

Celtic Symbols

Similarly, the Celtic knot motif has been a part of Celtic culture for hundreds of years. While the historical meaning of the endless loops in traditional Celtic knots may be lost, this design has come to signify eternity, love and the circle of life. The Celtic knot is one of the most popular motifs in Celtic jewelry and artistry.

Celtic Symbols

Claddagh

The Claddagh is also a traditional Celtic symbol, which features two hands holding a heart topped with a crown. The hands are to represent friendship, the heart represents love and the crown represents loyalty. This symbol is commonly worn as a ring, but also makes a striking pendant. Jewelry bearing this symbol is often gifted between lovers.

Celtic Pendant Symbolism Revealed

When it comes to the Celtic pendants, necklaces and rings in our collection, we believe you’re not just wearing jewelry; you’re wearing a little piece of history. The various Celtic designs we have on offer all carry their own unique symbolism and it is fun to learn more about the motif you just purchased.

In a number of ancient cultures, jewelry was seen as a powerful object that contained and protected the energy of the wearer and it seems as if the Celts had this connection to the jewelry they wore. While the metal used to create the jewelry could help signify the class and wealth of the wearer, it was the designs themselves that really held meaning. Below, we look at the symbolism of some of the Celtic jewelry in our collection.

Tree of Life

According to the Celts, the Tree of Life (also known as crann bethadh) symbolized balance and harmony. For them, the Tree was a representation of how life in Earth and Heaven were interconnected. The branches grew upwards towards heaven, the roots descended into the underworld and the trunk stayed on Earth and managed to unite the branches and roots.

Whenever the Celts cleared land, they left one giant tree in the center of fields. It was common for them to hold meetings and even elect their chieftain under this tree. They believed the tree had the ability to look after all life because it provided people and animals alike with shelter, food and even medicine.

Some Celts even believed they came from the trees and saw them as living things. Indeed, the trees that protected the land were even deemed to be doorways into the spirit world. Cutting down the Tree of Life was one of the worst crimes any Celt could commit but chopping down an enemy’s tree was hailed as a success.

Shamrock

It’s said that St. Patrick used the shamrock to help teach the Irish natives about Christianity when he arrived in Ireland in AD 431 (this is a widely accepted date though scholars are not in full agreement). It represented the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit; otherwise known as the Holy Trinity.

However, the Celts also revered the shamrock because of their own obsession with the occurrence of three’s. You can see evidence of this in the wide range of Celtic symbols that are related to the number ‘3’ such as the triple spiral, triquetra and triskelion. The shamrock was also a major food source for the livestock of the Celts so it also became associated with nurturing and abundance.

Animals

Animals have a number of attributes that caused them to be considered strange by the Celts; yet this ancient people also desired animal traits such as flying, fast running, great swimming, sharp hearing and remarkable strength. When you see a Celtic design where humans and animals are joined by a knot, it is a representation of how humans rely on nature. The Celts had different meanings for animals including:

  1. Bird: A bringer of messages and a bridge between earth and water.
  2. Bull: Represents a strong will.
  3. Butterfly: Symbolizes rebirth, transformation and inspiration.
  4. Dog: Loyalty and companionship. It was also a symbol of good fortune.
  5. Salmon: Prophecy and wisdom.
  6. Snake: This animal represented healing, creation and fertility.

Trinity Knot

Also known as the ‘triquetra’, the Trinity Knot is arguably the most famous of all Celtic knots and like the rest, it is made up of a single continuous line. This of course symbolizes eternity as the knot has no beginning or end. According to the Celts, all of the important things in the world came in threes. Examples include the three domains (the sky, earth and the sea), the three stages of life and three elements.

As the Trinity Knot was such an ideal fit for the Christian belief system, it became widely used in Christianity as it represented the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In the modern era, neopagans use the Knot to represent the Three Stages of Motherhood; also known as Maiden, Mother & Crone.

Celtic Cross

This design is comprised of a regular cross with a ring around the intersection of the arms and stem. While a number of scholars have tried to claim that the Celtic Cross symbol was brought to Ireland by St. Patrick in the 5th Century, others claim the ring on the cross is actually a representation of Invictus, the Roman sun-god. If this was true, it would mean the Celtic Cross was almost certainly created before the arrival of St. Patrick.

Yet more experts believe Celtic High Crosses were only created in around the 8th century and were used to mark a religious place such as a church or monastery. It’s probable that a number of outdoor religious ceremonies were conducted around these High Crosses.

Claddagh Ring

This is one of the most famous pieces of jewelry to have ever come out of Ireland and doesn’t appear to have any links to the Celts whatsoever on first glance. It was almost certainly produced in the fishing village of Claddagh, County Galway, in the 17th Century.

One legend suggests it was created by a local man named Richard Joyce. He made the ring while he was kidnapped and held by a Moorish goldsmith in Algeria. He was either released on the orders of King William III or escaped and went home to Galway where he proposed to the woman he loved with the ring.

Yet it seems as if the Claddagh Ring could have some Celtic meaning after all. It meets the Celtic criteria for ‘threes’ as the ring is comprised of three parts:

  1. Heart: Represents love.
  2. Hands: Represents friendship.
  3. Crown: Represents loyalty.

Traditionally, you must wear the Claddagh Ring a certain way to indicate your relationship status:

  1. Left Hand with Heart Inwards: You are married.
  2. Left Hand with Heart Outwards: You are engaged.
  3. Right Hand with Heart Inwards: You are in a relationship.
  4. Right hand with Heart Outwards: You are single and looking for love.

If you look through our collection of pendants, necklaces, rings and other Celtic jewelry, you’ll find all of the above designs and more.
