In ancient times it was believed that the heart was the center of human passion and also the seat of the soul. Therefore it was seen as the place where spirit and body united. The shape although most commonly thought to represent the human heart, has also been linked to the shape of the vine leaf and the wings of doves joined together. Our association with the heart symbol in our stunning wedding rings is all about love and passion – as the universal symbol of love.
This beautiful wedding band combines the heart with the Celtic lovers knot. The Lover’s Knot design is often attributed to sailors and seafarers who would weave the knot with two pieces of rope to give to sweethearts as mementoes as they set out to sea. This same knot was likely to adorn a Celtic Shield or the points of a cross as a plea to the God’s of the four corners of the Earth for protection. The threads of the knot are unending, intertwined with each other, symbolising unity and protection. Celtic knots similar to these adorn our precious illuminated manuscripts such The Book of Kells or the Lindisfarne Gospels.
