Thou sent’st me a true-love knot, but I Returned a ring of jimmals, to imply Thy love hath one knot, mine a triple tye. ~ Herrick

In ancient times, when Rome was the center of the world, brides wore a belt or girdle on their wedding. It was traditionally tied in a “hercules knot,” known today as a lover’s knot. Only the groom was given permission to untie it. The knot represented the binding character of the marriage oath. These gorgeous earrings are crafted from solid 14k yellow gold that resembles tiny beads, giving them a unique texture that makes them a little bit dressier than your regular earrings. Perfect for a night on the town, you’ll soon make these your favorite go-to earrings when you want to look fashionable. Their 9mm size keeps them from being ostentatious while still allowing them to speak a statement. See these and more in our collection of Gold Love Knot Earrings.

The lover’s knot has a rich tradition. In Great Britain, in days gone by, ribbons with true-love knots were offered as bridal favors. They put these ribbons in their hats! In France, they were worn around the arms. Eventually, the multicolored ribbons were replaced with white ones. These lever back, love knot earrings in white gold are reminiscent of the white ribbons of long ago. The smooth and simple design measures 13mm x 8mm. Lovely to look at but exquisite to own, they would make a terrific gift for the woman you love! And we have more! See our complete collection of White Gold Love Knot Earrings for more inspiration!
