The Herakles Knot (Herakleotikon hamma) has been used for jewellery since at least the Hellenistic (Greek) Age (323-30 BCE) and has remained popular throughout time. Inherited from the Egyptians, for whom it had an amuletic (protective) role, it became popular as a marriage symbol. The Greeks used it frequently on the bride's protective girdle, securely fastening it until the groom untied it after the wedding - possibly where the term "tying the knot" arose! The unbreakable knot still symbolises the strength of true love.

This ring has been handcrafted from 14K Yellow Gold and 14K Red Gold, thus further symbolising the idea of the uniting of two people. Size = H.   N.B. This is a very small size.

Also available in Pure Copper or Sterling Silver (925/1000).
