A rough hewn Celtic knot pendant in sterling silver
This rough hewn Celtic knot looks hand carved in sterling silver in our modern interpretation of a classic, unisex Celtic design. The pendant measures just over 1 inch across and comes with a sterling chain in 18, 20, 22 or 24 inches.
The intricate Celtic knot (snaidhm Ceilteach in Scottish Gaelic) is a staple of Gaelic and Caledonian art for the past several millennia. A variety of endless or basket knot design, the Celtic knot can be found throughout ancient and modern Celtic artwork. While these delicate spirals and step patterns were common in Celtic art before Christian influences in the area, the designs soon found their way into early Christian artwork by the mid 400s AD.
