The Celtic Shield Knot is a symbol of protection, used commonly to ward off evil spirits and harm. Many soldiers would carry amulets of this charm with them when going to the battlefield. This symbol was also placed on the battlefield to protect the soldiers from harm.
The Shield Knot can also be interpreted to represent eternal love, unity and loyalty between friends, family and lovers. It’s endless loop, with no end or beginning, represents everlasting love while the knot image represents an unbreakable bond. This connection with love is the more popular association today.
Our Celtic Shield Knot was created with the intention to blend these two meanings. To symbolize not only the four seasons and ever-lasting nature of love, but also to create protection for the wearer. Worn with this intention, our Celtic Shield Knot Charm Bracelet is the perfect gift of protection or self-protection to one's heart in love.
