Step out of the pages of history with a necklace straight from Ancient Greece.
Handcrafted in 22k gold, this necklace features Herakles knots linked between small Ruby beads. Each link has been made from custom alloy 22k wire and formed into each individual knot. The links of the knot are hand fused and for true ancient beauty. Finished with shepherds hook clasp, typical for jewelry seen in ancient times.
The Herakles knot is found in Greek jewelry from the Mycenaean period, but became particularly popular in the fourth century BC. Its symbolism is closely connected with marriage, and the knot that tied the bride’s garment and was untied by the groom. In many cultures the tying or untying of knots marks moments of transition, whether from maiden to married woman or even from life to death. The untying of knots is also connected with the easing of childbirth.
Timeless beauty for a classically beautiful look.
