Lovely earrings for an Irish lassie...

I bought these earrings last year for a friend on the East Coast, so I haven't seen them yet. The colorful blue topaz stones first caught my eye, and I think the Celtic knot pattern and "dangly" style of the setting enhances their attractiveness.

My friend is of Irish heritage, so I felt this pattern would make them more special to her. I became curious about that knot so Googled it to learn more. In case you don't know, Celtic knots are an Irish symbol you'll find everywhere in Ireland from designer jewelery to tattoos worn by rock n' rollers to, of course, the original Book of Kells back in old Dublin. It's not clear that Celtic knot drawings were ever meant to symbolize anything, but lots of modern people think they contain spiritual concepts. The knots are incredibly popular with followers of new age religions, magic societies and all sorts of other groups who want to draw an association with the oldest traditions of Ireland,

That said, my friend's husband told me he likes them because they look so good on her and make her blue eyes look even bluer. Isn't that sweet? But most important, my friend loves them...and that's good enough for me!

Highly recommended...and the price is right too.

These are beautiful earrings and that's an interesting history behind these knots. Knots are really significant in Asian culture and art, too. In fact, my mom sent me to knotting school when I was younger. It's both an aesthetic and a spiritual thing. Thanks for sharing, Betty! Glad your friend liked them :)

Thanks for dropping by, Devora, and for sharing about attending knotting school. I knew the taught sailors to knot, but never knew they had schools for others. Wow! I can understand the aesthetic and spiritual aspect of it, similar to floral arranging and sometimes home decorating... ;-)

My pleasure!  If you're interested in reading more about Chinese knotting, you can check out this Wikipedia page about it.  It's not only used for tying knots with strings, but also in metalwork and jade carvings as well, in jewelry, home decorations, etc :)
