There are no rules when it comes to eternity rings but, traditionally the eternity ring comes after the engagement ring and the wedding ring, some people give them for a special wedding anniversary. But however you define that is up to you, you might choose the first wedding anniversary, or maybe the fifth, or the tenth. Eternity rings can be given to celebrate birthdays too, especially one of the “big” ones that end in a zero. Or some choose them to help celebrate the birth of a child.
Whatever occasion you choose, commissioning a bespoke eternity ring makes the gift even more special. An eternity ring traditionally sits alongside the engagement ring and wedding ring, so it’s a good idea to bear this in mind when choosing it. However, in these days many people disregard that tradition and wear the eternity ring on the right hand. In this case, it is not necessary to match the other rings.
Should the ring be worn alongside other rings, the metal should be the same, usually, the stones in a diamond eternity ring are much smaller than those in the engagement ring, so the engagement ring remains the main focus of attention.
A full eternity ring has stones set all around the band, so that when you turn the ring there is no beginning or end to the row of diamonds in it, symbolising eternity. A half-eternity ring has diamonds set on the top half only, with the back of the ring left plain.
A ring can sometimes turn on the finger, and with a half eternity ring the plain back can come to the top, but with a full eternity ring the stones are always showing and there is no need to turn it back into position. There are however three advantages to a half eternity ring, as the plain band should stay mostly at the back. The area under the finger is the part of the ring to take most wear-and-tear. Keeping the diamonds on the front of the ring means the stones and their settings are less likely to be damaged and are less subject to wear.
The plain underside of a half-eternity leaves an area that can be worked on in future. If the size of your finger changes over time, which is quite likely, an alteration can be carried out. With most full-eternity rings re-sizing is not possible. A half-eternity ring takes fewer diamonds, which can mean either that you spend less on the ring, or that can have larger diamonds for the same sort of price.
As we design and make eternity rings to individual and bespoke commissions, we are able to offer not just full eternity and half eternity rings but also say 60% or 70% eternity rings where the diamonds go slightly past the half-way point, allowing for some twisting of the ring before plain metal starts to show.
Our experience has shown that emerald cut and asscher cut are perfect for a classic eternity rings, but for something more unusual and contemporary, you could consider an eternity ring with marquise diamonds or perhaps pear-shape diamonds.
We create custom-made eternity rings to complement individual engagement rings in platinum, gold, palladium and diamonds, many of these are shaped to fit with the engagement ring in the same way as our fitted wedding rings.
Why buy a mass-produced ring on the high street, when for a similar price you could have a unique eternity ring created just for you? Make things even more special with Aurum Designer Jewellers in Sussex.
