They also believed that trees had divine powers in them and had connections to their ancestors.

 

Based on their beliefs, the Celtic people would leave one tree standing in the middle of a cleared piece of land.

They called the tree ‘Crann bethadh.’ It was seen as a life force that cared for all creatures on earth, no matter how insignificant they were.

What Tree of Life Symbolizes in Jewelry

 

The features of a tree or even some historical occurrences that refer to a tree are used to explain the meaning of the tree of life.

 

  • The root and the leaves: These parts of a tree are a symbol of connection. The tree relies on the soil for nutrients and the sky and sun for rain or sunlight. This is a depiction of the fact that no human can easily survive alone. The presence of family and friends (connections) makes life easier.

 

  • Branches: This part of a tree is a representation of a large family that extends outwards as the numbers grow. The branches are also a symbol of strength. The branches hold on to the fruit and even when they are broken; the branches grow back. This represents the resilience of human beings.  The tree of life also signifies how interconnected every human in the world is. The branches of a tree spread out, but are joined at a trunk; this is significant of how human beings may seem diverse but are connected by a shared ancestor or relative. 

 

  • Seeds: The seeds from a tree symbolizes an ancestral line and the multiplication of that line with time. Every tree is a product of a seed. A seed can blossom into another tree and have fruits which will have seeds, and the process continues. Furthermore, the seeds represent fertility and vitality.   

 

The continued bearing of fruits and seeds is also a representation of continuity or immortality. This is because the seed has the qualities of the tree it came from. Growing that seed, is, therefore, a continuation of the tree it came from.

 

  • The physical appearance of the tree: This is a symbol of age and growth. When a tree starts to grow, it looks beautiful. However, the longer it is exposed in the open, the more worn it looks. This is like the growth of individuals emotionally and in physical appearance. The circumstances people are exposed to in their youth can alter their character and appearance. 

 

  • The roots and branches: These are symbols of strength. The roots continue to move deeper into the ground with time, and even in times of drought, the roots of the tree move even deeper and wider in search of resources. Similarly, the branches grow upward towards the sun to obtain nutrients. This represents the growth of humans and strength even when faced with adversity.

 

  • Uniqueness and individuality: When trees grow, they may look the same, however with time and weather, the trees look unique. Like trees, humans may seem alike in their youth, but circumstances shape our personalities and create unique individuals.  

 

  • New life: In the fall and colder or drier months, leaves turn to a burnt brown color and fall off. When the weather gets warmer, green leaves grow and flowers bloom. This process takes place once a year and represents a chance at a new life.
