Any "Little Miss" would consider this charm a heavenly addition to her bracelet. Crafted in sterling silver, this winged heart boasts a Celtic Trinity knot and a delicate clear stone that catches the light like a diamond. The Kelly green of the enamel announces the young wearers awareness of her family's connection to Ireland, and even her own Irish spirit.
The Legend of the Knot
The early purposes of Celtic knots included religious and secular decoration. In the Book of Kells, for example, variations of these knots adorn the pages of the four Gospels of the New Testament. Celtic knots have taken on more symbolic meanings as the centuries have passed. While many individuals ascribe personal significance to these designs, they might agree that the neverending loops signal, at the very least, the unbreakable continuity of life, and the way that all elements of life temporal, spiritual, natural are intertwined.
The Irish poet Thomas Moore writes in one of his poems, But, come, the more rare such delights to the heart, The more we should welcome and bless them the more; They're ours, when we meet they are lost when we part, Like birds that bring Summer, and fly when 'tis o'er. This heart, suspended in flight, reminds the youthful owner that life is filled with enchanting moments of spontaneity and discovery, and that though these moments may be fleeting, the memories of them can stay with her always. As she skips and runs in play, this charm dances with her movement and the rompings of her imagination. The touches of Ireland on the charm bring her back home at the end of the day.
