A 0.925 sterling silver Irish Celtic Shamrock 3 Leaf Clover and Love Knot pendant available with an optional 16in, 18in, 20in or 24in sterling silver 0.75mm rope chain. The shamrock refers to the young sprigs of clover or trefoil. It is known as a symbol of Ireland, with St. Patrick having used it as a metaphor for the Christian Trinity. The name shamrock is derived from Irish seamróg, which is the diminutive version of the Irish word for clover (seamair) meaning simply "little clover" or "young clover". A knot is created by binding or interweaving two individuals strands, the Celtic love knot represents love between two lovers. Celtic love knots are very similar in their meaning to the eternity knot or Celtic heart knots, although heart knots are a recent addition to the Celtic art form.
