Taylor hart eternity ring mothers day

Taylor & Hart Eternity Ring

In partnership with Taylor & Hart

Finding common ground between a host of desirable tenets, eternity rings symbolise never-ending love, appreciation, and commitment. Between the subtle sparkle of their gemstones and the versatility of how they can be stacked or worn, these rings squeeze serious significance into a tight and luxurious package. While commonly used as wedding rings, they’re just as often gifted as a token of renewed love.

Acclaimed jeweller Taylor & Hart explores the eternity ring to the fullest extent, thereby injecting the entire category with new meaning. Going well beyond the wedding band, these rings have taken on their own tier of symbolic importance. That makes them an ideal gift this Mother’s Day, either for the mother of your children or even your own mum.

To peruse Taylor & Hart’s current inventory is to discover an epic swath of materials, designs, and price points. See what leaps out at you and prepare to knock her socks off this Mother’s Day. Her wide eyes and massive smile will say it all. That’s the power of an eternity ring.
