Not Only Round Diamonds Anymore: the New Eternity Band

December 12, 2011 | Author: | Posted in Weddings

We’ve all heard the saying “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, and this is a sentiment that makes eternity rings such a great choice when finding the perfect wedding ring, engagement ring, or gift. Eternity rings, which are equally stunning and popular as wedding bands and fashion rings, are named because the basic style of an eternity ring forms the traditional never ending shape of the wedding ring with a solid circle of precious stones, most commonly diamonds.

The eternity ring, formed by making a solid circle of gems around the band, can be created in many ways. An assortment of settings as radically different as the single prong, shared prong, and pave styles can be found, and very old gem setting technique such as channel setting and bezel setting lends themselves well to this style. A good eternity rings retailer will make rings to order for each customer, which takes more of a time investment but is assuredly worth it.

Eternity bands can be difficult to make because rings are sold by carat total weight, so for each ring ordered all the stones need to be a uniform color, shape, and size so the circle they form will look good, add up to the proper carat total weight, and fit the wearer’s finger. This kind of precision which makes eternity rings something of a challenge is also, of course, the trait that makes them so attractive and special.

Eternity rings that are well made with good materials should shine brightly forever, but jewelry does require maintenance to remove buildup of dirt and oil that forms with day to day wear, and the settings should be checked to ensure that the gems remain secure.

Although diamonds are the most frequently-seen stone in eternity rings, many other precious gems are appearing in eternity rings as custom pieces, birthstone rings, and fashion jewelry for wearers in search of a favorite stone. Emeralds, sapphires, rubies, and different colors like pink and yellow sapphires and black diamonds are all growing in popularity.
