How to make love last an eternity
Why do we give and receive eternity rings? What classes a ring as an eternity ring? And, what finger do you wear an eternity ring on? All of these questions and more will be answered as we give you an introduction to eternity rings.
Eternity rings are usually worn by women, however in recent years, we’ve seen a rise in men receiving eternity rings given in the same spirit of everlasting love.
An Eternity ring in its simplest form is a circle; a never ending loop that goes on forever. It’s this concept that emerged as far back as 2000 years ago in Ancient Egypt. When hieroglyphics were created, the circle was used to represent eternity or infinity, which was then related to the state of love between two people throughout a lifetime and on to another.
Over the years, humans have since adapted this sacred symbol into fine jewellery to be worn on the fourth finger of the left hand - where a vein leading straight to the heart is said to be found.
Following this, there are two distinct styles that you will find while looking for an eternity ring; one is a full eternity ring where precious stones are featured in a continuous circle around the band, and the other is a half eternity ring, where precious stones are featured at the top of the band.
Many eternity rings include various stones including diamonds, sapphires, rubies, crystal, emeralds and zircon, with each one having its own special meaning to the wearer. Below, we have chosen a collection of engagement rings for you to discover, so you can find your loved one the perfect eternity ring to represent your everlasting love.
