Tie the Knot with Love Knot Ring Designs
Ever tied a knot, we mean literally not figuratively, in your life? Then it is not hard for you to find the obvious connection between love and knots. In the most practical sense, we tie knots to fasten or secure a thread or a rope. For lovers who seek to fasten their lives together and secure a place in each other’s lives, what could better represent love than knots? In olden times, before the heart shape stole the show, people commonly used rings and ornaments featuring different kinds of knots as a symbolic representation of love. Love knot ring designs are making a comeback and becoming popular among brides and grooms who prefer tying the knot with a symbolic knot. If you are looking for an unconventional alternative to solitaire rings or heart rings, check out BlueStone’s lone knot ring collection.
Forget Me Knot: The History of Love Knot Ring Designs
When you choose a love knot ring to adorn your fingers, you are not only choosing an ornament but also becoming part of a tradition that began many centuries ago. The history of love knots is punctuated with many interesting traditions, legends, and customs. Legend has it that love knots were first introduced by ancient sailors who spent months and months sailing the high seas. Those sailors weaved ropes to make intertwined knots whenever they remembered their lovers and kept such knots as mementos for their beloved. Unsurprisingly, wedding rings featuring love knots were quite common among sailors in olden days.
When talking about weddings, we freely use the phrase ‘tie the knot’, but have you ever wondered about its origins? Ancient Celtic wedding ceremonies had an interesting custom equivalent to the modern day ring exchange. During the ceremony the priest tied the hands of the bride and groom together with a twine. For the Celts, knots were a symbol of eternity and the custom of tying knots around hands meant that the couples were joining their lives in everlasting love, till eternity. Similar customs were widespread in many cultures across the world and as time passed, people started making rings and other ornaments that featured different kinds of love knots.
What Are Love Knot Ring Designs?
Love has many variants; so has the love knot. Though people use this term to refer to certain kinds of knots, they are not one and the same. From the commonly used figure eight patterns to romantic heart loops, the love knot has many distinct versions. Most of them, however, feature two overhand knots interlocked to form a single knot. The mode of interweaving and the final arrangement of the knot differ from one version to another. So it is nearly impossible to pinpoint a single knot as the true or authentic version.
The existence of many distinct patterns is actually a blessing in disguise for designers and jewellery lovers because it gives them plenty of options to experiment with and choose from. Take, for instance, the love knot ring collection offered by BlueStone. The collection features a number of knot types that vary in pattern and arrangement. When you buy love knot rings online from us, you can choose the type that best appeals to your heart and our love knot rings’ prices are equally attractive to win your hearts.
