Eternity rings are a symbol of eternal love that date back more than 400 years. The common feature of all eternity rings, is that they are set with numerous gems around the band, most often diamonds, but sometimes coloured gemstones such as rubies and sapphires.
In recent years, there has been increasing demand for eternity rings to be worn as wedding rings, though traditionally they have tended to given as gift to one's partner to mark very special occasions such as the birth of a child or an important anniversary.
A "full eternity" ring is one where the stones go all the way around the band. A half eternity ring is set with part of the way round the band. Although the full eternity is traditional, there are advantages to half eternity rings. Not only are they more affordable, they are also easier to resize than a full eternity ring.
The gems in an eternity ring can be set in a wide variety of ways: claw settings, channel settings, rub-over settings, gypsy settings and pavé settings are all popular.
Round stones are the popular choice for eternity rings, but square or rectangular stones also look fantastic and have the advantage that they can be set edge-to-edge to form a continuous diamond surface.
Traditionally eternity rings are warn on the wedding ring finger, on top of the engagement ring and wedding, though some women choose to wear them on a different finger rather than have three rings on one finger.
