Unique Features and What to Look For in an Eternity Ring

An eternity ring is not only an incredibly special and meaningful way to show your eternal love; it also makes the perfect piece to pair with other pieces of jewelry you own and love! While most often associated with bridal jewelry, eternity rings are becoming more commonly given as a special occasion gift. Many women are also choosing to purchase one for themselves, as eternity bands are perfect for stacking with other rings and creating new looks.

There are many gorgeous styles of eternity rings available from Gabriel & Co., including options available in a variety of metals, stones and settings!

What is an eternity ring?

An eternity ring is one that is set with a continuous line of identically cut gemstones or diamonds (or a combination of both). It’s also known as an infinity ring.

While traditionally eternity rings have been made up of a circle of diamonds, gemstones are also a popular choice, especially when you stack multiple styles together.

What does an eternity ring symbolize?

An eternity ring traditionally carries a symbolic meaning of eternal love or the circle of life. These rings are commonly given on special occasions, like a first anniversary, milestone anniversary, or to celebrate the birth of a child. 

However these days, eternity rings are also incredibly trendy and purchased by more and more women as gifts for themselves. An eternity ring can be worn on any finger of choice, but many women opt to wear them alongside their wedding and engagement ring. Eternity rings make a fantastic addition to your jewelry collection as they are perfect for stacking with other rings or wearing on your non-dominant hand.

How long have eternity rings existed?

It’s a little wild to think about, but there is evidence that the concept of eternity rings actually dates back thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians exchanged rings that were meant to symbolize the infinite cycle of nature, the creation of life and love.

The modern diamond eternity band dates back to the 1960’s, and has only grown in popularity since then. Whether you choose a traditional diamond eternity ring or gemstone, eternity rings are a classic style that truly stand the test of time.

What kind of eternity ring should I choose?

While in the past many women chose an eternity band that was the same metal as their wedding bands, these days there are so many options.

Ultimately, the design of the eternity ring doesn’t necessarily have to follow tradition, which is one of the best parts. Gabriel & Co. offers many beautiful eternity ring options in white gold, yellow gold, rose gold and platinum. From classic to trendy, you’re sure to find a ring style you love!
