The never-ending knot dates way back to the late Roman Empire. Probably even sooner. It can be found in several cultures within their art and architecture.

Celtic Square Knot Necklace
To the monks of early Christianity, the square symbolized the creation of the manifold universe. They used the geometric method of construction to create knots to fill squares in their designs for embellishing manuscripts. This knot fits into a square, although here we have adapted it to make a necklace with a pendant so the shape has become slightly elongated. Knots made with cord (compared to knots constructed geometrically on paper) have a life of their own!
