History of the Celtic Trinity

The leaf-life trinity knot, or triquetra (from the Latin 'three-cornered), was used by early Christans to represent the Holy Trinity, though the symbol has its roots in earlier pre-Christian religions, possibly existing thousands of years beforehand. Being such as versatile symbol, the triquetra has countless interpretations - the number three was an important number in Celtic symbolism, so possible meanings also include the unity of the earth/sea/sky, the three stages of life, or various triple-deities. 
It came to prominence during the period of 'insular art' in the early middle ages, which combined early Christian and Celtic art. Some of its most famous incarnations are found within the artwork of the Book of Kells. It was popularized again during the Celtic revival of the 19th Century. 

About the Maker

The word fadó means "long ago" in Gaelic - it is one of the most evocative words in the language as many children's stories so often start with the words "Fadó fadó in Éireann..." or "Long, long ago in Ireland..."

Fadó specializes in Celtic and contemporary Irish jewelry, drawing on the rich tradition of the island's Celtic heritage and the beautiful Irish landscape, flora and fauna for inspiration. The pieces are all designed by John Condron, who has a deep love of local history and tradition - he is committed to preserving the stories and legends and provides tangible memories by way of his jewelry creations. Every piece is made in County Wicklow to his exacting specifications - nothing is allowed out the workshop door unless it is perfect in every way!

Fadó Jewelry is hallmarked at Dublin Assay Office, Dublin Castle, Ireland - a guarantee of the fineness of the product.
