During the late 19th century, there was a revival of interest in Celtic traditions and Celtic knots became very popular in the United Kingdom especially in the Arts & Crafts movement such as Archibald Knox and Liberty & Co. Also known as Lover's knots or Marriage knots, these rings are highly sought after today. Pure fun and very special.
