Claddagh Heart Love Symbol
The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish ring given as a token of friendship, love, or marriage.
The Claddagh's distinctive design features two hands clasping a heart, and usually surmounted by a crown. The elements of this symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown).
When worn on the right ring finger with the heart pointing to the fingertip, the wearer is free of any attachment.
On the same finger but the other way round, with the heart pointing away from the fingertip, it suggests someone is romantically involved.
When the ring is on the left hand wedding ring finger, it means the person is married or engaged.
Celtic Love Knot Symbol
There are several types of celtic knots, many of them symbolize love, eternity, and continuum.
The interlacing lines of the Celtic Knot stands for "no beginning, no ending, the continuity of everlasting love and binding together or intertwining of two souls or spirits."
Heart knots were added recently to Celtic symbolism. Hearts now known as symbols of love date back to the later medieval period but they have become an established part of Celtic lore in the last decade of the 20th century.
There is also the lover's celtic knot, any knot can be a lover's knot. Knots that link two separate paths are used as lover's knots.
