The art of Chinese knotting dates back to prehistory through archeological discoveries of bone needles, thought to be used for tying and untying knots, carbon-dated from 100,000 years ago. Initially, the function of knots was purely practical: day-to-day record-keeping, documenting important events (the more substantial the event, the more complicated the knot) and even to create a pact between two parties. But with the advent of written record-keeping, it transitioned into a decorative, symbolic artform. Jewellers today continue to use knots, imparting a little good luck along with their beautiful creations.
