From wikipedia: The valknut (coined from Old Norse valr, "slain warriors" and knut, "knot") is a symbol consisting of three interlocked triangles. It appears on a variety of objects from the archaeological record of the ancient Germanic peoples. The compound noun valknut is from the modern era. The term used for the symbol during its historical employment is unknown.
Scholars have proposed a variety of explanations for the symbol, sometimes associating it with the god Odin, and it has been compared to the three-horned symbol found on the 9th-century Snoldelev Stone, with which it may be related. Hilda Ellis Davidson theorizes a connection between the valknut, the god Odin and "mental binds":
For instance, beside the figure of Odin on his horse shown on several memorial stones there is a kind of knot depicted, called the valknut, related to the triskele. This is thought to symbolize the power of the god to bind and unbind, mentioned in the poems and elsewhere. Odin had the power to lay bonds upon the mind, so that men became helpless in battle, and he could also loosen the tensions of fear and strain by his gifts of battle-madness, intoxication, and inspiration.
This ring is cast in gold or .950 platinum, these rings are made of 100% recycled metal and your choice of gold color (either white, yellow or rose, see our color comparison photo). The finish shown in the images is brushed with patina. We can make this ring with different finishes, please see the last image for a comparison of the different options.
This Celtic ring design differs from most Celtic patterns in that the knotwork goes all the way around the ring in an unbroken pattern, symbolizing the continuous and intertwining nature of true love. Each one is individually made in your size so the width of the ring varies depending on how wide your finger is, so all rings match proportionally (see the chart below to see how big the ring is in your size). We can vary the width, please message us if you would like a custom width.
All our Celtic rings are individually made to order in your size and metal, please contact us if you need a larger or smaller size than listed.

We will give you a quote and if you agree, begin working on your custom design. This process can take 4-12 weeks depending on the design. Once you approve the design, we will create a custom listing for you to purchase. Upon full payment, your ring will enter production which takes 4-6 weeks.
Upon request, we can make rings with natural stones such as Diamonds, Topaz, Ruby etc Please contact us for a quote as this will dramatically increase the price since these stones are mined at premium costs.
We do not offer tungsten, steel, or titanium.
For rings with stones or continuous knotwork (80% of our designs), we cannot resize the ring and you will need to purchase a brand new ring at 35% of the original cost to cover the labor required to make a new ring. Creating a new ring takes our standard 4-6 weeks. We only offer this discounted remake service once; if you order the incorrect size again, you will have to purchase the ring at full value. We know this is frustrating but we are a small business.
You must contact us within 3 days of receiving your ring to tell us if you need a resize. Original ring must be returned.
For purchases over $1500 contact us for a 6 payment plan.
We are flexible on finish dates, but we require rings to be paid in full before we begin working on them (rings take 4-6 weeks to create). Please keep this in mind if you need your rings for a specific date.
Patina is a method of darkening metal through oxidation. This allows small details to stand out and gives the ring a beautiful contrast. Almost all our photos use patina.
Polish is the standard finish you see in high end jewelry - bright, shiny and very reflective.
Brushed is a matte finish recommended for those who are hard on their hands or do rough work. The surface will not be shiny so it hides any scuffs that might occur during wear. Be warned, this will look much duller than our polished finish.
Please see last image in listings for examples of the different finish styles.
