The association of knots with the symbolism of love, friendship, and affection dates back to antiquity. Throughout the last few centuries, though, they've most commonly been regarded as a symbol of the connection between two lovers. This particular type, often called the "true lover's knot", was a popular ring style for sailors separated from their beloved. It's made by interlocking two overhand knots in two parallel wires, so each one is flexible to move about the other, yet they're inseparable forever. (Aw!) Another fact about this type of knot: in Victorian times, to show if a young couple's love would last, each would take a small limb of a tree and tie a lover's knot. If the knot held and grew for approximately a year, their love would stay true. Our ring is handmade from gold-filled or sterling silver wire.
