The bow ring has many meanings. The sentimental Victorians used the "infinity knot" 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. Contemporary with antique stones. Handmade in NYC. 14K white and yellow gold. 28 recycled diamonds or 28 turquoise cabochons.
