Eternity rings are a style of ring often gifted to celebrate significant occasions such as special anniversaries, birthdays and Valentine’s Day.
They are so called because of the “eternal” or everlasting nature of diamonds or other precious stones that are set around the entire band of the ring. Eternity rings are available in a range of settings including prong, channel, bezel, and flush settings.
When wearing an eternity ring the stones set on the sides and underside of the band are generally less visible. They can also rub the adjacent finger and cause discomfort. For this reason many women opt for a half eternity ring. It is cheaper and easier to resize the ring at a later date if this becomes necessary.
