The further apart the tighter the knot says the two little lovebirds tying a love knot wax seal necklace pendant. The birds, each holding an end of line in their beaks, are tying a love knot as one flies away from the other who sits firmly atop a rock, with a ship in the distance, with the French sentiment LE PLUS LOIN LE PLUS SERRE which translates THE FURTHER APART THE TIGHTER THE KNOT or THE FARTHER WE FLY THE FASTER WE TYE.
The love knot is symbolic of love and friendship, and represents the unbreakable bond and eternal connection between two lovers, with each holding an end of the line knowing that the knot becomes tighter as the two ends become further apart.
