  • woven loveknot bracelet

Simple and striking, this fluid bracelet is formed from twin 'ropes' knotted to the centre, each made of fine hand woven strands.

A symbol of love and commitment, the love knot, also known as the Hercules knot, was used in Ancient Greece and Rome in wedding ceremonies and to symbolise Hercules in his capacity as the god of fertility. Consisting of two strong, intertwined strands, it was tied as a protective amulet into the bride’s wedding gown, to be untied by the groom. Hence derives our expression “to tie the knot”. This tradition may have originated from the legendary capture of Diana's girdle by Hippolyta, the Amazon queen.

This jewellery collection comes to us from one of the foremost and well established silver jewellery manufacturers in Greece. We are proud to have been working with them for over a decade.T

The collection is inspired by ancient Greek silver and gold coins, the art and jewellery of the Minoan civilisation, familiar symbolic motifs and images, and the animals that played a significant part in ancient Greek culture.

Bracelets can be made to any size by special order, which may take up to four weeks.
