Celtic knotwork originates from Norse influences during the occupation of the Western Isles by Vikings from the late 800s-1300s, though there is some evidence of Roman knotwork, obviously predating this.
In medieval times gold was considered good for your health, following the belief that something so beautiful and rare had to be good for you. I read recently that over 98% of all of the gold ever mined on our planet is believed to still be in circulation today. As gold effectively acts as a currency and can easily be melted down and converted to cash, this is the main reason why there is so little heritage jewellery that has survived the centuries. It’s not that gold is not durable; it is just the case that very few pieces have survived the various depressions and recessions. Once gold pieces are converted to cash they are normally melted, sold as bullion and then eventually resold to jewellers to manufacture back into jewellery. There is every chance that somebody reading this is wearing an item of gold jewellery, from which a portion of the metal in the piece was once worn by royalty.
