Proclaim your Love with Infinity Jewelry

Forever, always, and beyond are common in our measurements of love and affection. How can we translate this into a token or statement that goes beyond the words? The answer, infinity jewelry. While the actual infinity concept was mathematically conceptualized in 1655, the symbol was first created in the 5th century A.D.. The "hippopede" as it was originally termed in Greek, was taken from the even older symbol of Ouroboros, a serpent biting its tail, representing continuity.

This year find a piece of infinity jewelry that will parallel the meaning in your relationship.
