The Algerian Love Knot is being sought after since Bond girl Vesper Lynd
wore that necklace in 'Casino Royale'. While the original piece was designed
and manufactured by Sophie Harley, its price tag puts it out of reach for most of
us. Meanwhile similar necklaces are available for a fraction of the original
price, which makes it affordable for the average customer as well.
Within living memory, all kind of people believed in the magical abilities of
knots. Already primitive cultures trusted in their magical power which they
traditionally associated with things like weather, health, spirits and love. The
latter usually consists of at least three, sometimes more, intertwined rings
created from wire, that are flattened after fabrication. Typically standing for
completeness and constancy it can be found in most cultures referred to as the
Celtic love knot. This kind of knot became fashionable and popular in the 18th
century as the knot was used by sailors to remind them of their beloved ones left
What makes the Algerian Love Knot so popular?
In Casino Royale, Bond girl Vesper Lynd, starred by Eva Green, wears the
Algerian Knot necklace throughout the whole movie and it totally steals the
show. This necklace is created from intertwined gold and silver rings and while
its ancient symbols touch the mythical mysteries it makes a perfect match to
James Bond 007's mix of action, intrigue and romance and emphasizes Vesper
Lynd's secret. Subsequently the Algerian Love Knot became a hit, especially
within James Bond fans.
Inspired by the design of Vesper Lynd's necklace, Emitation's unusual sterling
silver Algerian Love Knot necklace stands for joy, wealth, health and love and
makes a perfect gift not just for the Bond girl wannabe.
