The Triskelion has long been known as the Triple Goddess symbol-Maiden, Mother & Crone, or the three phases of the moon-waxing, waning and full, an underground BDSM and alternative lifestyle symbol, and for the Christians, the Trinity. Whatever it means to you, this is a lovely piece at a lovely price. With the price of silver going sky high nowadays, pewter is a very attractive and cheaper alternative. These pretty earrings are made of pewter, and measure 1/2 inches tall. The French hooks are surgical steel.
