About Celtic Knots

A Celtic knot is a variety of mostly endless knots and stylized graphical representations of knots. The famous interlocking geometric lines and swirls appeared first on ancient Celtic metalwork and stonework. Celtic craftsmen produced many different variations of the Celtic knot. After the Celts, these designs were used to decorate Christian monuments and manuscripts. Today they are popular in many types of jewelry and clothing, and they have many different meanings. The endless knot represents the eternal, without beginning or end. The Trinity knot has three prominent points, and it has been found on carved stones in Northern Europe dating as early as the 8th century. To many people, it represents the Christian Trinity, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It can also mean earth, air, and water; or past, present, and future. Knots with four points are called shield knots. You can find a large selection of Celtic knot earrings, pendants, rings, bracelets, and other jewelry through the reliable sellers on eBay.
