The eternity band is the ultimate symbol of everlasting love. The band of the ring is formed from a chain of diamonds which are connected forever. The diamonds on an eternity band can be pavé, channel or French set, depending on the style of the wearer. Traditionally, a separate eternity ring is given either on a significant wedding anniversary or on the birth of a couple’s first child. However, some couples choose to put their spin on this gift and upgrade the bride’s engagement ring with an eternity band instead.
There are two main eternity ring designs: the full eternity ring and the half eternity ring.
Full eternity rings usually feature a band set with a continuous circle of stones. The circle of stones is thought to represent continuous and ongoing love.
Half eternity rings usually feature a continuous line of stones on the face of the ring rather than a continuous circle. This is mostly done for comfort. The continuous line of stones is still said to represent eternity.
