    This Sonnet, no 116, is among the most well known; phrases from it have entered the language and are often used in the marriage ceremony.

    Well-loved phrases from the sonnet have been finely engraved onto a hand finished sterling silver bracelet with unusual properties. The geometric form is known as a Moebius strip, after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Moebius (1790-1868). It represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end, or one of infinite length. As such, it became accepted as the symbol for infinity and appropriate as a symbolic form.

    The inscription reads as follows -

    Let me not to the marriage of true minds
    Admit impediments. Love is not love
    Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or bends with the remover to remove:
    O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
    That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
    It is the star to every wandering bark,
    Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
