Until your next visit, here’s what you need to know about these show-stopping rings…
Why Are They Called Diamond Eternity Bands?
With origins dating back to ancient Egypt, the modern popularity of eternity bands can be credited to De Beers Jewelers, who popularized the ring in the 1960s through efforts to sell small stockpiled diamonds. Now a part of modern gift giving, eternity bands are true to their namesake both in design and tradition. With gemstones that seem to have no beginning or end as they fully encircle the ring, these stones seem to go on for an “eternity” around the finger of the wearer. Playing off of this design, these rings are commonly given as an anniversary or milestone gift, often standing as a symbol of eternal love. Diamonds are forever, so what better way to declare your love?
The Variations of a Diamond Eternity Band
If you like the look of an eternity band but are wanting a slimmer design, a half-eternity ring may be just what you’re looking for. Featuring gems that are set only across the front half of the ring and the other half without stones, half-eternity bands are the perfect way to get the full eternity look at a lower cost and slimmer design.
These precious stones that characterize a diamond eternity band also come in a variety of cuts. Compliment your emerald cut engagement ring with an emerald shape eternity band, or add an oval cut band to your everyday stack. Want a ring for a truly everlasting love? These stunning rings can be adorned with heart-shaped diamonds as well!
Should You Wear a Diamond Eternity Band as a Wedding Ring?
Eternity rings are rapidly becoming non-traditional alternatives to classic engagement rings. As more and more couples look for unique, inspired ways to break from tradition while still honoring timeless commitments, eternity rings are growing in popularity.
Often given as a milestone after an engagement ring, many women chose to wear their diamond eternity band in its place. Its design is more wearable than traditional engagement rings, with diamonds that wrap around the band rather than a larger stone set on top. It is also more compatible with other rings by design.
Is It Appropriate to Wear an Eternity Band If You Are Not Married?
With the tradition of modern eternity bands suggesting they be worn by married couples, there is no fast rule that you can’t or shouldn’t wear one without being married.
Eternity bands are the perfect gift to celebrate a graduation, a promotion, a new job, or any important life milestone. Every occasion deserves a sparkle! On that note, you don’t need an occasion at all to wear a diamond band. Rings are the item of jewelry most visible to the wearer, so why not look at something as pretty as a diamond band everyday? Don’t wait on someone else to celebrate you with a diamond band, you deserve it whether someone tells you that or not.
How to Wear a Diamond Eternity Band?
As we’ve established, there are no rules when it comes to eternity bands! Traditionally, an eternity ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, below an engagement ring. This is because ancient Egyptians believed there was a vein in this finger that led straight to the heart. As stunning as this timeless look may be, a row of such stunning diamonds will look good anywhere! Stack your eternity bands for a stack that would catch anyone’s eye, or wear them across different fingers for a full look.
