This is a Nouveau-Celtic design which I call the Bailey Triskele. It is inspired by strength, elegance and balance.
Initially, I designed it to have a stone (round brilliant cut, oval or especially a marquis cut stone) to fit in the center, however I think it looks good on its own just as well. It’s reminiscent of two whale tails which hold a celestial body (moon or sun) between them. The stone sits in the iris of an eye shape.
The whale symbolizes the chief of the ocean and is the largest animal on our planet. The eye is an apotropaic talisman that only allows good luck to happen.
The two triangular knots are triskele knot patterns from 1200 years ago, found in the Book of Kells. A Triskele symbolizes good luck and eternity. Two triskeles, as in this case, represent two halves of a whole. The Bailey design is named for the first person who ordered it, Ms. R. Bailey.
