With records dating back to the Egyptians, eternity rings have from then until now come in the form of solid rings or have been embedded with diamonds. A style that we specialise in, here at Voltaire. The diamonds and precious stones are chosen often to symbolise, unity, love and appreciation to the recipient. Stones and diamonds can be chosen to match the styles and character of the individual or to highlight a special period in your life.
