From renowned brands such as Thomas Sabo & ChloBo and yours truly, we have the perfect infinity gifts for your own enjoyment or to give to those you care about most.
Where did the infinity sign come from?
The infinity symbol was first introduced in Ancient Greece when mathematicians and philosophers where it was initially referred to as ‘lemniscate’, which means ‘ribbon’. This was derived from the serpent biting its own tail, an ancient symbol called Ouroboros. To this day, the infinity symbol represents infinity, immortality, eternal love/return, continuity and fertilisation.
What do infinity signs look like?
The traditional infinity symbol takes the design of a mathematical symbol that holds the concept of infinity. Also known as the lazy eight, it holds continuous curves. However, the infinity symbol can also come in the form of two discs interlocked. Additionally, the traditional symbol can have feathers, hearts and birds incorporated into the lines.
