In this pendant, ShanOre artists have brought together two hallmarks of integrity and spirituality: the pearl and the Trinity knot. It seems fitting that the oldest known gem should be paired with an emblem of timelessness. The sterling silver braids of the knot appear to clasp the pearl with a gentle magnetism, and the white tones of both natural elements create a look of purity.
The Legend of the Trinity Knot
In non-Christian lore, the three corners of the Triquetra shape originally epitomized the three attributes of a Goddess maiden, mother, and crone. Over time, the trifold meaning has evolved into earth, air, or water and life, death, and rebirth. To many Christian believers, the knot still pays tribute to the three dynamics of the Holy Trinity, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In any case, the figure highlights the concepts of unity and equality.
