An eternity band is a precious metal band, set with a continuous band of gemstones. Likewise a diamond version features an continuous row of diamonds.
A continuous repeating pattern of diamonds represent everlasting love. Most people connect this ring style with a significant anniversary.
Sometimes the first, or tenth Anniversary. For most couples, a diamond band follows in sequence. Firstly couples buy an engagement ring. Next, comes the wedding ring. Finally the eternity band.
Diamond engagement rings - mark commitment and an intention to marry.
Wedding rings - mark the union of marriage or civil partnership.
Eternity style rings - celebrate the ongoing union of marriage or partnership.
Also known as infinity ring, this ring style features an continuous row of diamonds fully set around the ring.
In contrast, Anniversary rings have a plain section of metal under the finger. Alternative terms include half eternity design.
History and origin
Traditionally, this ring type originates from DeBeers in an attempt to sell small diamonds. As a result of marketing campaigns in the 1960's global sales of diamonds increased.
They provided an opportunity to sell to married women. Moreover, couples who had already been through an engagement ring and wedding ring purchase.
Two posters advertising rings with associated slogans below.
"She married you for richer or poorer. Let her know how it’s going." (DeBeers 1960's campaign)
"When a man actually remembers an anniversary, he ought to make it unforgettable." (DeBeers 1970's campaign)
"We never made it to the restaurant. What better way to celebrate your next anniversary. A diamond is forever." (DeBeers 1990's campaign)
Why are they given?
Diamonds symbolise never-ending love. In addition, the enduring physical properties make diamond an eternal gemstone choice.
This sparkle, value and allure, all contribute to the precious moment. Cut into small, consistent sizes, diamonds make perfect gemstones for setting into rings.
When are diamond Eternity style rings given?
Diamonds were traditionally given after 60 years. For example diamonds represent a 60th Birthday or Anniversary.
Today, many wives receive this ring type after one year, five years or ten years of marriage.
Some couples celebrate the birth of a child with this ring style. As a result a new term "maternity ring" features in some circles.
Which finger do you wear the ring on?
Tradition suggests that the ring is placed on the wedding ring finger. In the UK this is the third finger of the left hand. In detail, the engagement ring finger. However, some people choose to wear the ring on the opposite hand.
If the eternity band does not sit with, or match the engagement ring set, this makes sense. Or, some buyers choose the other hand for a big statement diamond ring style
Half or full eternity?
In contrast, half-set versions leave the underside of the ring plain. Logically, half set designs cost less than fully set rings.
In addition, they allow room for a size adjustment. In contrast, fully set rings cannot be resized.
Shaped Eternity Designs
Shaped eternity styles fit around existing ring styles. In contrast to straight eternity bands, shaped styles custom fit. We provide a full bespoke ring service for this reason. First we quote for a fitted eternity band.
Next, we design and create a CAD model. Our clients then receive detailed designs. Finally, we craft the ring, setting diamonds in any precious metal choice.

We sell eternity styles throughout the year. Popularity rises in certain seasons. For example, Summer and Christmas. Choose an occasion to suit your own circumstances.
We often provide help with choosing the best design. For example, some clients send a photograph of the engagement ring. We then match a suitable style to any existing rings.
Or, some clients send the engagement and wedding rings to us to match in person. Finally, other clients visit in person. We carry most styles, including the Raphael Collection in our showroom to view.
