Hand-Engraved Celtic Knot Band

Celtic Knots



Classic interwoven Celtic knots were the inspiration for this handsome wedding band. A newly engaged couple wanted to honor their approaching wedding with a man's wedding ring celebrating the interlacing artwork of the ancient Celts.  So, we worked with them to custom create an elegant band featuring two of these intricate designs.

The ring was hand crafted with platinum inlaid between 18kt rose gold edges.  The platinum was then engraved with two Celtic knots and the background darkened to throw the design into relief.  These two knot designs - the "Love Knot" and the "Tralee Knot" - were of personal significance to our client and their combination carried a special meaning.

Like a sculptor,  our engraver used a technique known as "relief engraving" to remove small portions of the platinum background to raise the intricate Celtic knot designs in high relief.  The beauty and depth of the engraving helps assure that this ring will be enjoyed for many years and will be passed to future generations.

Each of our custom rings is hand crafted and signed with our registered hallmark, "BEL".  The precious metals are also marked - in this case "PLAT" for 95% platinum and "18K" for the purity of the rose gold.  These marks are your assurance of imaginative design, uncompromising craftsmanship and quality materials.

A Brief History of Celtic Knots


Interlocking knot-like patterns appeared as early as the Late Roman Empire in 3rd century floor mosaics.

During the 7th century,  Celtic artists began creating beautiful objects decorated with endless knots.  It is during this period that plaitwork (woven, unbroken cord designs) evolved into broken and reconnected cords that became characteristic of true knot-work.

Intricate knot designs gained increased appreciation during the Celtic Revival of the late 1800s and today is most commonly associated with Celtic Art.
