Eternity

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?

Eternity Rings

Eternity Rings at Stefan's Jewellers

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?
