Triskelion Earrings 18K
Delivery: 2-3 weeks
The Triskelion is a symbol older than the pyramids at Giza. It can be found carved into funeral mounds in Ireland, dated to nearly 6000 years ago. 3 in 1 is a powerful symbol and appears over and over again throughout different societies. The Triskelion was appropriated as a symbol of the holy trinity for early Celtic Christians, but its roots are far, far older.
We make these earrings in our casting foundry. First, we create wax models that are the exact size and shape of the finished triskelions. Then we place the models in a special plaster and heat them in our kiln until the wax melts away. We then melt the gold down and pour it into the plaster – filling up the spaces the wax models left behind. The rest is the skill of filing, shaping and polishing by hand until we have something as beautiful as in our pictures, but that our hand-made process has rendered subtly unique and individual.
These particular earrings are crafted in buttery yellow 18K gold, giving a rich, silky, lustre that radiates quality and elegance.
