Long Celtic Knot with Claddagh Earrings, Sterling Silver
These dangle earrings feature a celtic knot the ends in an Irish Claddagh.
The Claddagh is a traditional Irish symbol which represents love, loyalty, and friendship (the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty).
The Celtic knot is also referred to as the mystic knot or the endless knot. The more esoteric or spiritual meaning of this symbol eludes to beginnings and endings. In viewing these beautiful knots, we cannot see a beginning or an end, and therefore we are reminded of the timeless nature of our spirit. A less spiritual representation is also related to the knots endless nature. Due to it’s infinite path, the Celtic knot can represent an uninterrupted life cycle. Some may use this symbol as a charm of sorts – warding against sickness or setbacks that might interfere with an otherwise calm and stable life. In ancient times, gifts adorned with mystic knots would be given with best wishes of longevity, or luck with new endeavors.
Each earring hangs from a Sterling Silver French hook.
