Celtic Knot Symbolism:
One of the reasons that Irish Celtic jewelry is so popular is the rich meaning and symbolism of the artwork and knots captured in sterling silver.
One can argue of original meanings of Celtic symbols but what matters most is what speaks to the wearer of these rich Irish symbols.
Celtic symbolism is a matter for debate. The Celts existed for centuries without a written language to explain the various designs the evolved over the many years the Celtic culture survived.
While there is disputation over the meaning behind the Celtic knot symbol one thing everyone agrees on is that the Celtic knot and other designs are now a classic.
Celtic Eternity Symbolism
Any Celtic Knot design that has one line that has no beginning or end is called an Eternity not or Infinity knot.
Anciently Celtic took the no beginning or end symbolism to represent interaction between eternity and mortality as one interconnectedness. Some just refer to it in more simple terms of the knot of eternity or the infinity knot.
Spirit, Mind, Body.
Additionally the symbols of the three legs can mean Otherworld, Mortal World and Celestial World.
Infinity or Eternal Knot:
Eternity is a religious symbol as well so the Celtic Eternity pendants are a religious pendant as well.
The Trinity Knot is also considered a Religious symbol. The Trinity knot has three corners on each design. These three corners have been adopted by Christians to represent the Holy Trinity. One corner for each member of the Holy Trinity.
The Celtic circle represents eternity or infinity as well because the line has no beginning or end. So if Celtic knot pendants have a circle in the symbol then it is also a religious icon.
