Tying The Knot

I am so excited to be attending a great friend from college's wedding in Israel. As a little "happy" and belated birthday present I made her this custom sterling silver bow necklace. It is inscribed with their Hebrew names and is intended to represent the strong bond between them. Mazal Tov, Mara and Harel!

"Tie the Knot"
 'It isn't clear whether this expression derives from an actual knot used in marriage ceremonies or whether the knot is merely symbolic of a lasting unity. Knots have a place in the folklore of many cultures and usually symbolize unbreakable pledges. Actual knots have certainly been used in marriage ceremonies for some time and the tradition of trying the wrists of the bride and groom with twine continues today in marriages in the use of sashes which are placed over the principal's wrists. The word 'knot', although not in the phrase 'tie the knot', has been associated with marriage since at least the 13th century. '
