More About the Birthstone Mother-Child Knot Necklace
The Mother-Child Knot is a Celtic Knot similar to the Triquetra. It has a few extra loops. Inside two of the extra loops are where the birthstones are placed. The top birthstone represents the mother, and the center one represents the child.
This necklace is often given to new mothers, or pregnant mothers. It is also a popular Mother’s Day gift.
