The story behind the jewelry: Love Knot

The story behind the jewelry: Love Knot



Also know as the Knot of Hercules, Love Knot and Marriage Knot, the Hercules Knot is a wedding symbol  that stands for undying love and commitment.

It is one of the most strong known knots and is made with two entwined ropes representing the legendary fertility of God Hercules. It was initially used in ancient Egypt as a healing charm,but has been most commonly known among the Ancient Greeks and Romans as a love token and a protective amulet. It was incorporated into the bride’s protective girdle which the groom ceremonially untied.

The Hercules Knot is believed to be the origin of ‘tying the knot’, a phrase that means getting married.
