Eternity rings have been given for many years by loved ones celebrating special occasions. But where did the tradition begin, and why do we continue to give these beautiful gifts in the present day?
The history of Eternity Rings dates back nearly 4000 years to the
ancient Egyptians when they were given from husband and wife
simply as a token of love.
Some of the earliest examples of eternity rings were designed to
imitate the likeness of a snake consuming its own tail. This image is a
common symbol used to represent eternity and often referred to as the
'ouroboros'. Ouroboros rings are still sold today, however the more
traditional eternity ring choice is a band of precious metal set with
gemstones such as rubies, emeralds and most commonly diamonds.
An eternity ring can hold just as much meaning as an engagement or wedding ring as it is just as much a promise of love and commitment. Another symbolic meaning that an eternity ring holds is its representation of the circle of life, for this reason it is often given when a couple welcome their first child to the world. Today eternity rings still carry the symbolic meaning of undying and eternal love and are usually given on a special occasion.
At Stefan’s we offer a large selection of beautiful eternity rings that are perfect for that romantic gesture and expression of undying love. Our eternity rings come in a variety of precious metals so you can choose the one that is right for you. If you are wanting something that little bit more special then why not have a bespoke one made?
We have been going to Stefan's for a few years now. Nothing and I mean nothing is too much trouble for Stefan or Sandra, always a smiling face whenever you go.
Whether you are looking to make a special purchase or your everyday things, I'm always losing my small earrings so am always popping in you will be welcomed with open arms.
I will never go anywhere else as you are treated like royalty but don't have to pay like a King!!
If you are looking for quality, value for money and excellent service this is the place to go. Thank you, Stefan and Sandra.
We met Stefan and Sandra at a wedding fair and instantly fell in love with them!
We felt like we had known them for years and were like friends rather than customers. We travelled 40mins to visit their shop and selected our wedding rings, Stefan even customised Marc's ring for him.
Fantastic service even travelling half way to meet us one night to deliver the rings and a couple of cheeky beers! Thank you both so much.
The shop and staff are hidden gems. Warm, friendly, professional but with a caring touch. Adore my bespoke diamond ring by Stefan.
What a great experience we had.
Stefan and Sandra come across so professional and had a really good attitude towards life.
They both brightened our day up especially ordering 2 palladium rings. Would recommend this company by far as they are absolutely brilliant.
Keep up the good work guys.
Thank you so much for making the choosing of our Wedding Rings such an enjoyable experience.
It was so much more fun and personal than we expected.
We had an amazing day and really appreciate all your help.
Love and best wishes
My now fiancè (!!!) bought my bespoke engagement ring from Stefan, literally could not ask for a more beautiful piece of jewellery.
Will 100% be using them again for the wedding rings in 2020!
After looking at other jewellers...Including New York and not finding a ring we liked... we decided to go to Stefan's as both myself and Fiancé are from Sale and were keen on an independent jeweller as opposed to a high street chain...
We weren't disappointed!.... We got such a lovely personal service which led to me finding the engagement ring of my dreams!.... So much so I can't stop staring at it!!...I love it!!... So unique and different which was my perfect style..
We can't wait to go back to choose our wedding bands and other jewellery to make our day special...
Thanks Stefan... You're a legend!
Having first used Stefan to completely refurbish an engagement ring for my partner that had been passed down in family and holds great sentimental value, we have recently been back to purchase wedding rings.
At every encounter, Stefan has been nothing short of excellent. Throughout the process Stefan has not only worked to our tastes, preferences and budgets, but also delivered breath taking products as well as a friendly and enjoyable experience.
I couldn’t recommend Stefan highly enough and will be returning in future.
