Celtic Knots date back to the 5th Century and are infinitely intricate. Ancient monks used Celtic Knots to illuminate manuscripts such as the famous Book of Kells. The Celts believed that life was never ending and that continuous re-birth would allow complete spiritual fulfillment and this belief became the inspiration for the many knots.
This particular Celtic Knot emphasizes the power of three – in ancient times it is believed that the number three referred to land, water and air. As Christianity advanced the number three came to refer to The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
Note also that this Celtic Knot is a fine example as to how a Celtic artist finishes a linear pattern – by creating a tiny scroll illustrating life’s never ending journey.
This is a medium Celtic Knot and finishes an outfit beautifully. It is crafted in .925 sterling silver. Several chain options are available.
