Knots are one of the most popular and beautiful themes in jewelry. You’ll see them in almost every style of jewelry – earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc. They go by numerous names too, including love knot, lover’s knots, true love knots, and more. And who hasn’t heard a wedding referred to as “tying the knot”? This recurring theme has its roots in a deep meaning of love and commitment.
When two things are knotted together, they are inseparable and unbreakable. This is why knots are often used to symbolize love and unity. And it’s not a new idea. In fact, this associate between love and knots has been around since ancient times. You’ll see it in ancient Greek jewelry, Egyptian sculptures, and Celtic knots.
Knots have also been a part of marriage rituals for a very long time. In some cultures, the bride and groom’s hands are bound together during the ceremony to symbolize their binding love. In other cultures, the groom’s scarf is tied to the bride’s garments, symbolizing their deep connection to one another. Even today, it is not uncommon to see brides wearing love knot earrings or grooms wearing love knot cufflinks to symbolize the unbreakable bond of marriage. These traditions underline the union of the two lovers.
These deep roots and traditions are all a part of what makes love knot jewelry so beautiful and meaningful. Giving this gift to someone you love shows the depth of your love. It is the perfect way to let someone know that you can’t imagine a future without them. And wearing love knot jewelry reciprocates those deep emotions and commitment.
