Hallmarked and stamped / certified by Dublin Assay Office Company of Goldsmiths.

From as far back as 3200 BC spirals are found carved into stone on the island of Ireland. My ancestors combined they’re knowledge of sacred geometry and stellar observation to create Megalithic structures which have stood on the landscape throughout the ages.

Although commonly known today as a symbol of Celtic origin, ancient monuments show that the triskelion actually predates the Celts by a considerable period.

Experts have located archaeological sites that tell us that the shape was around as far back as the Neolithic Period. The triskelion dates back to the Stone Age. The oldest surviving triskele that we have been able to locate is in Malta; it is around 6,500 years old.

However, the best known illustrations of the triskelion that have survived today are perhaps those found on the massive Sí an Ḃrú burial mound in Newgrange, Ireland. They form part of the design of an astronomical calendar carved into the rock and have been dated to 3200 B.C. The link between this ancient structure and the triskelion is probably the basis of the strong association between the symbol and Celtic culture that is so widespread today.

It must be noted, though, that the native inhabitants of Ireland at the time were not Celts, a people who moved there at a later stage. However, the triskele consistently appears in Celt art for thousands of years, especially after 500 B.C.
