The Infinity Symbol – Meaning
Today the Infinity symbol is used much more often than what it was first created for, Today the infinity symbol is seen to represent forever love, a never ending romance and family, the generations before and after us, among other things.
This symbol, which looks like the number 8 turned on its side, is actually known as the Lemniscate, which means “ribbon.” It was first introduced during the seventeenth century by John Wallis, an English mathematician who wanted to create a symbol to represent the idea of infinity – a sum that is larger than any number that can ever be created.
The word infinity means something that has no beginning or end, something that is endless. Infinity shaped pendants are indicating that your friendship/love will have no end and will go on forever. It really has a powerful message. The more traditional infinity pendants are represented with the 8 symbol sideways but more modern designs are also created with interlocking circles or patterns. Infinity pendants are a perfect gift to show someone special how much you value their friendship, their love, their companionship or simply for always being there for you.
