The Trinity Knot and the Triskele are Celtic images that are among the most well-known in the world. And, the intrinsic meaning of the intertwined and connected spirals, contained within a true circle, is a classic statement of love.
Much of our Celtic design heritage symbolises eternal love and protection, and this is beautifully illustrated in a new collection of Liwu Irish jewellery, now on sale for Valentine’s Day.
Designed and handmade in Ireland, Liwu by Áine Breen first introduced its meaningful delicate jewellery creations six years ago.
Contemporary pendant necklaces, earrings and bracelets are available in the new reimagined Liwu Celtic collection. Made in pure sterling silver and solid 9ct gold, as well as in gold plate, the skilled silversmiths at Liwu use sustainable recycled silver and gold, and each piece comes with a meaning card, explaining the symbol and sentiment.
Also known as the Celtic Love Knot, the Trinity Knot, created by our ancestors, has no beginning and no end. It represents eternity, love, unity and protection within relationships, and, as a disc pendant, the circle also represents wholeness, original perfection and timelessness.
So too, the Triskele, also known as the triple Celtic spiral, represents progression, intuition and creativity. It symbolises our making progress through life, and is often gifted to mark special milestones, and to express love and support as life and the seasons continuously roll forward.
Liwu designer, Áine Breen, now offers exclusive appointments so that customers can view the entire range and discuss the symbolism and meaning they want to convey, and the jewellery style that suits best. Personal consultations can be booked in Gorey in Wexford, via the website, https://liwujewellery.com, or zoom calls can also be facilitated for those looking for bespoke creations that speak volumes, and make a personal statement that is truly lasting and beautiful. There is a beautiful range of heart necklaces and rings in store too.
The Irish jewellery designer explains that the various symbols appeal to customers in different ways, so loved ones can uniquely express shared personal sentiment.
‘There is meaning and expression in every piece, and it is remembered and appreciated, especially when words may not come easily. The gift of symbolic meaning is beautiful for people we hold dear, and a lovely idea for Valentines and other special occasions’, Áine Breen says.
The Celtic Dara Knot is a beautiful token representing resilience, which is connected to the strength of the native Irish oak. Wisdom, endurance and inner peace is also symbolised by the simple Ailm cross design from the Ogham alphabet.
Silver earrings and bracelets are priced from €49.00, up to solid gold Liwu pendants on gold link chains costing €249.00. Necklaces come in chain lengths of 16 inches/ 40cm to 20 inches/ 48cm and styles are interchangeable.

Liwu means ‘gift’, and Liwu Jewellery makes a beautiful gift and a lasting sentiment, especially for loved ones.
