An eternity ring / anniversary ring is a very special piece of diamond jewellery. It's a token of love and longevity. The word 'eternity' is used as a description for the ring because of the eternal ring of gemstones around the band, symbolizing never ending love.
How to Wear an Eternity Ring
An eternity ring is often worn on the same finger as the wedding and engagement ring.
The First Appearance of the Eternity Ring
The concept of an eternity ring probably dates back to Egyptian times, when jewellery fashions began with Egyptians using pieces of personal jewellery as love tokens or to commemorate an occasion – an anniversary perhaps, or the birth of a first child.
The early eternity or anniversary rings were crafted from all types of metal and often encrusted around the band with semi precious and precious stones. A popular image of that time was a snake with its own tail in its mouth – a symbol of eternity still popular today with creators of modern jewellery.
The Eternity Ring Today
Today, the eternity ring or anniversary ring is given to celebrate a special anniversary, or a number of years together as a married couple – perhaps ten years is an important milestone for them – so decide to mark the occasion with the giving of an eternity or anniversary ring.
As with the purchase of diamond engagement rings and wedding rings, the eternity ring or anniversary ring must be carefully considered before purchase ~ the type of metal preferred, the quality of diamonds or precious stones – and the exquisite design.
