Maltese Cross Pewter Ring

This pewter ring features a Maltese Cross variant with softer  and more subtle points and 2 Celtic knot Triquetras on either side.

The Maltese Cross is a symbol of protection.

The Maltese cross is a symbol associated with the Knights Hospitaller when the Knights were at Malta in the mid 16th century and the now the familiar design is now known as the "Maltese Cross". It is also the modern symbol of Amalfi, a small Italian republic of the 11th century.

The cross is eight-pointed and has the form of four "V"-shaped elements, each joining the others at its vertex, leaving the other two tips spread outward symmetrically. Its design is based on crosses used since the First Crusade.

The first evidence for Maltese Cross on Malta appears on the 2 Tari and 4 Tari Copper coins of the Grand Master Jean Parisot de la Vallette (Grand Master 1557–1568). These Copper coins are dated 1567 thus providing a date for the introduction of the Maltese Cross.

The Maltese cross was depicted on the two mils coin in the old Maltese currency and is now shown on the back of the one and two Euro coins, introduced in January 2008.

Celtic knots are complete loops without any beginning or end, this unending style is called pure knots. The knots vary from simple to complicated ones. The use of only one thread highlights the Celts’ belief in the interconnectedness of life and eternity.

Triquetra is a noun resulting from the Latin tri- ('three') and quetrus ('cornered'). Its creative meaning was merely 'triangle' and it has been used to refer to a variety of three cornered shapes. The triquetra has been found on rune stones in Northern Europe and on early Germanic coins. It presumably had pagan meaning and it bears a resemblance to the Valknut, a symbol associated with Odin.

The triquetra deals with the power of three, which is often seen as a divine number. This symbol that is formed from the intersection of three circles sometimes is shown with a fourth circle woven through it. When this is the case that fourth circle adds more weight to the significance.  It can connect the mind, body and soul and represents the way the three individuals are part of one whole and has many meanings such as life-death-rebirth, spirit-mind-body, mother-father-child, past-present-future, power-intellect-love and creation-preservation-destruction, the circle can show spiritual unity with the divine.

Material
Pewter Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper, antimony and other metals. Copper and antimony act as hardeners and depending on the mixture of metals it can be in colors ranging from a grayish/silver to blue and can be colored black or other shades in a semi-dull finish. Pewter is generally hypo-allergenic can resist tarnishing therefore it can retain its color and finish almost indefinitely or plated with gold, brass or silver.
