Bound by Time
Love knot jewelry is a very popular style of jewelry for expressing your love without depending on the classic symbol of the heart. It is a much deeper and more meaningful symbol as it represents endless love that has no end or beginning. The knot has been an emblem of love and constancy of the lover’s bond, as the pattern usually has no discernible beginning or end point (similiar to infinity designs). Tracing the roots of the love-knot pattern reveals no specific beginning either, as it has been found in Celtic artwork, ancient Egyptian carved sculptures, and ancient Greek jewelry. The design is also known as the marriage or Hercules knot, and thought of as a protective amulet in Greece and Rome. It was also incorporated into protective girdles worn by brides, which is a likely origin for the phrase “tie the knot”. In medieval and renaissance times, the lover’s knot was used as a love token.
A Romantic Gesture
In much of the literature and folklore on sailors and life at sea, the lover’s knot makes a regular appearance. It was apparently commonly used by sailors as a wedding ring tied with gold wire. Another common literary trope featuring the lover’s knot involved two young lovers tying a small tree limb into such a shape. After being left to grow for a year, the branch would indicate whether or not the relationship would endure and remain true if the knot held.
Aside from the classic history and meaning of the infinity knot rings, pendants, and other forms of knot jewelry, they are also designed in a way that has intrinsic character to it that never goes out of style. It is a classic yet stylish accessory that comes in many styles, shapes, and sized, which make it very easy to match with any outfit.
