Used for strength and protection, this "Shield of Destiny" knot was thought to protect one from danger and ward off evil spirits. This pendant has an intricate woven design on the front and the words "Shield of Destiny" engraved on the back, making it even more meaningful. The knot pendant measures 7/8" wide x 7/8" in length (1 1/4" in length including the bail), and is suspended from a 20" oxidized sterling silver round box chain, which is a great length for men as well. Handcrafted in the US. See our Zoe and Piper Storefront for a great selection of jewelry designs and styles.
