Frequently Asked Questions About Celtic Knot Jewelry
When did Celtic knots originate?
In the Roman Empire, interwoven patterns first appeared in handicrafts. Knot designs were first found in the third and fourth century AD, and were quickly translated to mosaic floor patterns as well. Byzantine architecture, Celtic art, Coptic art, Islamic art, and other art forms all made extensive use of this art form.
Celtic culture took the shape of knots, spirals, plait, braid, step, and key patterns to express deeply symbolic creations in or before 450 AD, before the Celts could be impacted by Christianity.
The real Celtic knots are considered to be broken and reunited plaits. This began in North Italy and the southern portion of Gaul, and by the seventh century, it had then spread to Ireland. Though this style was formerly widespread throughout Europe, it is now largely restricted to Welsh, Irish, and Scottish regions.
What does the triple knot symbol mean?
The Trinity Knot, also known as the triquetra was used to represent and commemorate the neo-pagan triple goddesses Mother, Maiden, and Crone. It represents a woman's three life cycles in connection to the phases of the moon.
Nowadays it can represent, 'The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.' Irish jewelry designers and silversmiths have lately reintroduced this classic Celtic design into jewelry pieces, giving it a new lease on life. It is now frequently worn as a sign of Irish descent or everlasting love.
What does wearing a Celtic knot jewelry mean?
The meaning of this Celtic Knot is that it represents unity and perpetual spiritual existence because it has no beginning and no end. The design's symbolic line weaves around the circle in an unbroken flow, implying that there is no beginning or finish.
