The Meaning Of Your Infinity Necklace And Other Infinity Jewellery

Jewellery is all about sentiment and meaning. Whether it is for a gift for another or something that holds special meaning in your heart, a piece of jewellery can sum up a thousand words.

As such, symbols have played a huge part in jewellery making for hundreds of years but have really gained in popularity in modern times. Often the origins of symbols can evolve.

In this blog, we talk about the Infinity sign used in jewellery, particularly the infinity necklace.

The Affinity Sign In Jewellery

The infinity symbol is an elegant, tactile shape and lends itself beautifully to items of jewellery. With no beginning and no end, the symbolism seems obvious. It makes a beautiful statement meaning everlasting, eternal and never-ending – usually with regards to love.

What Is The Meaning of An Infinity Necklace

Each of the sides of the sign are equal (although variations are seen in jewellery making) which represents balance, harmony, male and female, light and darkness, breathing out and breathing in.

The coming together of both sides where they meet and become one are at the central point.

The Origins of the Infinity Sign

Originally the symbol was called the Lemniscate by ancient philosophers, meaning “ribbon”. It has a spiritual meaning and was seen on Saint Boniface’s cross.

The infinity sign was introduced as a mathematical sign in 1655 by John Wallis. Leonhard Euler also introduced a symbol in mathematics very much like the infinity sign called ‘absolute infinitus’, meaning “unboundedness”, which was open at both ends very much like the ying-yang sign. In mathematics it now represents potential infinity.

Ouroboros

An ancient snake symbol where it eats its own tail symbolised the infinite and called an Ouroboros.

This was originally drawn as a circle but now takes on the shape of a sideways figure of eight. This probably derives from the mathematical meaning of the symbol but also from two circles, intertwined, meaning eternity and the cycle of birth and death.
