What is an eternity ring?

Eternity rings have been a symbol of love and commitment since ancient Egypt. Pharaohs and their wives wore these rings to represent their eternal love and devotion to one another. They have a rich history, with the earliest known eternity ring being discovered in the ruins of Pompeii and carbon-dated to the 1st century. In the Victorian era they become popular throughout society when giving a ring with diamonds symbolized eternal love and commitment. Today we give eternity rings to signify a milestone in a relationship; to celebrate an anniversary, following a marriage or birth of a child.

Eternity rings usually feature a continuous loop of diamonds or other precious stones, allowing light to reflect off them in an uninterrupted flow. These rings are commonly presented with a promise of everlasting love and fidelity and are given to represent a couple’s commitment to each other.

Today, you can choose from a wide variety of eternity rings, this includes full-eternity rings, which feature diamonds set all around the circumference, see my Heritage Diamond Eternity Ring; half-eternity rings, which feature diamonds set halfway around the circumference, see my Timeless Diamond Eternity Ring; and other designs which do not necessarily include a parallel, flat band, see my Forever Diamond Eternity Ring.

Eternity rings are usually crafted from gold or platinum and feature diamonds. However, other precious stones, such as sapphires, rubies, and emeralds, can also be used - alternating a gemstone and a diamond is a beautiful alternative. Contact me to design a bespoke eternity ring using gemstones and diamonds.

An eternity ring is a timeless piece of jewellery that can be worn daily and enjoyed for a lifetime. Typically worn on the same finger as an engagement and wedding ring, and as for the order they are worn in, it is completely up to you!
