That place which exists outside the constraints of place and time, with endless life, love and possibilities. This is eternity. A diamond eternity ring embodies the belief and hope in the infinite duration and possibilities of love, shared by a bride and groom. This endless band of diamonds encircling the bride's finger, symbolizes undying love and devotion. Diamond eternity band rings are also called diamond wedding or diamond anniversary rings. These rings are becoming increasingly popular, and recently have replaced the traditional gold wedding band for many brides.
What makes a diamond ring an 'eternity' ring?
A diamond eternity ring has at least one row of diamonds that completely encircle the band. This endless encirclement of diamonds symbolizes the strength and beauty of the infinite love between the bride and groom. It also represents the timeless nature of this affection and devotion. This ring is given in remembrance and celebration of the eternal nature of romantic love.
When is an eternity ring appropriate?
If you are in love and wish to commemorate your wedding or anniversary with a tremendous gift, the diamond eternity band ring is for you! Brides of any age happily wear the diamond eternity ring. This ring can be given as a wedding ring during a marriage ceremony, a gift as a part of a renewal of vows ceremony or as an anniversary gift.
In rare circumstances these rings are also given as friendship or promise rings. Traditionally though, the diamond eternity ring holds such a symbolically deep meaning that it is preferred by those who are intimately acquainted and believe their love has no beginning and will have no end.
What does a diamond eternity ring look like?
A diamond eternity band ring is a setting of white gold, yellow gold or platinum, which is completely encircled by diamonds in either a channel or bezel setting. A bezel setting is where diamonds are individually mounted flush into a setting, and the metal in the mounting separates each diamond from the one next to it. A channel setting places the diamonds right next to one another, recessed into a channel with none of the metal separating the diamonds.
The diamonds used in diamond eternity rings are of the highest quality and generally of a uniform size. For a channel setting, the total carat weight of the diamonds and the ring size determine the total number of diamonds in the ring.
For example, a two carat total weight diamond eternity ring with channel set diamonds and a ring size of four will have nineteen diamonds. The same ring in a size seven will have twenty-one diamonds.
Bezel set diamond eternity band rings are a bit different because of the way that the diamonds are mounted in the setting. Diamonds for these mountings can be more widely spaced and larger, but this also means that the ring will appear to have fewer diamonds overall and the diamonds will have a less continuous look.
Diamond shapes traditionally used in diamond eternity rings are the princess cut, baguette, emerald cut and round cut. Eternity rings use diamonds that are all of the same cut in the same ring, however there are some rings available that do mix diamonds of different cuts. These rings are as beautiful as the traditional ones, but their availability is much lower.
Enduring symbols of eternal love, brought together in one outstanding ring. The diamond eternity ring marries the timeless, elegant beauty of diamonds, with the desire of all brides and grooms; to glorify their infinite love and commitment to one another.
