Significance of the Celtic Knot:
Celtic knots are complete, endless loops without any beginning or end. The use of only one thread highlights the Celts’ belief in the interconnectedness of life and eternity. They saw the constant interlacing as the physical and spiritual crossing of paths, expressing permanence and the endurance of life, love and faith.
Significance of Red Garnet:
A deep, warm red stone with a glass-like lustre, garnets have been used in jewellery since early Egyptian, Greek and Roman times. Explorers and travellers wore garnet as a talisman and protective stone as it was believed to light up the night and protect its bearer from evil and disaster. It is said that Noah, from the Old Testament, used a garnet lantern to help him steer his ark through the dark night.
