The Celtic Love Knot
The Celtic love knot has an interesting meaning, and dates since the 3rd or 4th century, according to archaeologists who have studied its presence on various artworks created by skilled artisans of the Roman Empire. Based on unbroken loops, this powerful decorative element illustrates the concept of eternal love and also represents the cyclicity of life. The oval love knot is a metaphor for eternal life, while the round one pictures the sun’s orbit, directly connected to three important elements: fire, water and earth.
All Celtic motifs are equally mysterious, interesting and inspiring. You can find them carved on some of the most exquisite jewelry pieces, made from silver and gold by talented artisans with a genuine passion for legendary symbols and their overwhelming influence and beauty.
For religious persons who believe that God is their savior and their source of serenity and daily inspiration, a silver Celtic Trinity necklace is always an excellent gift idea.
