Celtic Spiral Ring Sterling Silver
The pre-Christian world of the Celts viewed life as a continuous cycle of birth-death-rebirth, for they understood that everything moved in a spiral, from the growth of a snail’s shell to the whirling galaxies above. The natural direction of Life is that of the spiral—a balanced, continuous movement winding inward toward the universal center.
The spiral was a sacred symbol to all primitive peoples. It demonstrates the eternal rhythm of life of which we are all a part. Our ring was inspired by an ancient pre-christian design that is a tribute to the Tuatha Dé Danann (Pronounced: Too-a-ha-dae Donnan-who, it is said, became the fairies of Ireland.)
The design symbolizes the intertwining of the dual energies of the universe—male & female, yin & yang, positive & negative, light & dark. These energies, attracted by the opposite nature of their “soul mates,” spiral toward each other in an eternal dance. To the Celtic peoples the spiral stood as a symbol of spiritual growth and eternal life.
