Our signature 1909 ring is now available in 14k gold with 24 fiery white opals. (Shop link in bio). In Western jewelry, the infinity-symbol-shaped bow or knot has symbolized endless love and constancy as far back as 500AD, when it was employed in Celtic rings. The sentimental Victorians loved the bow as a tidy metaphor for undying affection: it loops around itself in an eternal twist, forever and ever, never beginning and never ending. In a time when lovers were often parted for long periods, it could be a comforting metaphor for intimacy despite being apart. Think about what would happen if you pulled both ends of this bow: the further the distance, the tighter the knot.
