Love Knot Jewellery: The Perfect Gift
Jewellery has always been a popular gift. In the early days, it was made out of reeds or strips of leather that needed to be knotted together around the wearer’s finger to form a ring or around their wrist to create a bracelet. These were perhaps some of the earliest examples of love knot jewellery designs. When jewellers began using more gold instead of grass, love knot jewellery prices did go up and while the knots lost their functional value, their beauty made them a design favourite.
Tie the Knot with a Love Knot Ring
Knots have been associated with love and commitment since time immemorial. According to some legends, sailors on the high seas began intertwining ropes in elaborate ways to create the shape of a heart in remembrance of their loved ones back home. This made love knot rings very fashionable amongst sailors getting engaged or married. The Eavan Ring is one of our most trendy love knot jewellery designs. Its seven sparkling diamonds highlighting the gold infinity loop makes it an ideal design for wedding band rings. The simple elegance of the Caramella Ring and the Forachette Ring makes them popular as promise rings.
What the Ring is to the West, a Mangalsutra is to the East
In India, the tying of the mangalsutra is a vital component of a wedding ceremony. While the mangalsutra itself is simple, the pendant is where a woman’s personality comes alive. Given how a knot symbolises commitment, many women choose to buy love knot jewellery designs for their mangalsutra pendants. When a bride and groom take their seven pheras, one end of the bride’s dupatta is tied to the groom’s stole. The Uphar Mangalsutra is a literal representation of this knot and a constant reminder of the day a couple started their lives together. If you’re looking for something a little more stylised, take a look at the Pavi Mangalsutra.
Earrings and Pendants: Love Knot Jewellery Every Woman Loves
A ring may not always be an appropriate gift but you can’t go wrong with earrings. Earrings are the most popular form of jewellery and while a woman may not change her rings or pendants very often, she may wear a different pair of earrings every day to work. The Drihas Earrings are ideal for the working woman who wants to make a style statement without being drawing too much attention to herself.
For Life’s Special Moments, we bring to you love knot pendants. Of all the knotting styles, celtic knots are most famous because they appear to have no obvious beginning or end. This makes them a beautiful theme for pendant designs. When you buy love knot jewellery online, you will notice that they typically take either a triangular, circular or square-ish form. In their round form like the design of the Keela Pendant, they symbolise eternity or cycles of life while the box form is said to have a protective nature. The Tulia Pendant and Deirdre Pendant are beautiful examples of the square type of celtic knots.
