The center of the silver lace disk showcases a sterling silver Celtic knot – one of the oldest and most iconic Celtic symbols with no beginning or end.

This pendant also features Swarovski crystals on the detailed lace edge designs.
The Celtic Knot is a Celtic symbol that symbolizes a wide variety of things in ancient Celtic artwork. The knot seen here is a soft rounded Celtic knot with no beginning, no end; simply four loops connected forever. Various sources suggest that the four-cornered Celtic knot design was created as a symbol of protection (reaching to the deities of the four seasons), as a symbol of living within eternity (as the knots have no beginning or end and are enclosed within a circle), representing the four Gospels in the Book of Kells, or honoring the four seasons.
Irish lace craft dates back to hundreds of years before Queen Victoria made lace a style trend. Various regions in Ireland even developed their own unique lacework styles. Lacemaking was an important way that an Irish woman could help support her family and create a handmade Irish treasure.
The pendant measures at approximately 22mm wide, the chain is an 18″ silver Spiga chain. The intricate sterling silver details create a beautiful and dynamic look to this lace necklace pendant.
