Eternity Rings Guide: Etiquette & Types

16th October 2020

by Kannan

eternity rings guide

A diamond eternity ring is the ultimate symbol of everlasting love. Sometimes referred to as an infinity ring, an eternity ring is made from a continuous line of beautiful diamonds. There are many reasons you may wish to buy an eternity ring, and it depends on your personal preference. In our eternity rings guide, we discuss different types of eternity rings and the etiquette behind gifting one.

When do you give an eternity ring?

Traditionally, you would give an eternity ring to mark a special milestone within your relationship. It is common to give an eternity ring to your loved one to celebrate the birth of your first child together or to mark an important wedding anniversary or milestone.

There are certain types of eternity rings you would traditionally give to mark specific years in your anniversary. For example, a ruby eternity ring on your 40th wedding anniversary, on your 45th wedding anniversary a sapphire eternity ring is a great choice, an emerald eternity ring for your 55th anniversary and a diamond eternity ring on your 60th wedding anniversary. Of course, you do not have to follow these rules. Some people choose to gift a diamond eternity ring on their first anniversary or to mark another milestone.

An eternity ring symbolises everlasting love and commitment, which is why they are perfect for anniversaries. They are also gifted to celebrate the birth of a child as they represent the continuing cycle of life.

Eternity ring styles - Full eternity or half eternity?

eternity ring styles

The two main styles of eternity rings are full eternity rings and half eternity rings. Whether you choose a full eternity or half eternity ring will most likely depend on your taste and preference.

Full eternity rings

As the name suggests, full eternity rings feature stones (usually diamonds) around the entire band of the ring. This style packs plenty of sparkle and is super luxurious. Full eternity rings are typically slimmer than half eternity rings so that they remain comfortable with the stones underneath and on the side of the band.


Half eternity rings

Half eternity rings feature stones only on the top half of the band. Some people find this style more comfortable, especially for styles that feature larger diamonds, than full eternity rings. They can have any number of stones, and they can be of similar size or graduating size. Typically, due to fewer stones used, a half eternity ring is less expensive than a full eternity ring (depending on the size and quality of the stones used). 


Eternity ring settings

eternity ring settings

The setting you choose for your eternity ring affects the entire look and feel of the ring design. There are several settings to choose from, and the one you prefer may depend on your taste and preference.

Channel-set eternity rings

Channel-set eternity rings are where diamonds or gemstones are encased between the two metal edges of the band. This means the diamonds are set flush to the metal, making it a safe and secure setting style that isn’t prone to snagging.

Bar-set eternity rings

Bar-set eternity rings are where the diamonds or gemstones are set within separate metal bars which are held horizontally in between the ring’s band. In this setting style, the bars are part of the design and provide a clean and modern appearance.

Claw-set eternity rings

Claw-set eternity rings are the most traditional. This method involves holding diamonds or gemstones in place using metal claws along the ring. A claw setting enables plenty of light to reach the diamond - creating plenty of sparkle.

Eternity rings - Which metal type?

eternity rings metal type

Platinum, white gold, rose gold or yellow gold? The metal type you choose for your eternity ring will most likely complement your other everyday jewellery.

Platinum eternity rings

Platinum is the most luxurious metal choice for eternity rings but also the most expensive. Not only does this bright white precious metal exude beauty, but it is also the most durable and is hypoallergenic. Therefore platinum eternity rings are ideal for those with sensitive skin.

White gold eternity rings

White gold eternity rings are ideal for those looking for a similar appearance to platinum but for a lower cost. White gold eternity rings are wonderfully elegant and timeless.

Rose gold eternity rings

Rose gold is a fashionable metal type. The beautiful blush hue of rose gold eternity rings exudes romance and beauty - making them ideal as a gift to the one you love.

Yellow gold eternity rings

Yellow gold is a classic precious metal that is perfect for eternity rings. Yellow gold eternity rings pair beautifully with other jewellery pieces and makes a great gift idea.
