Eternity bands have always had an allure, and it’s easy to see why. Infinite rows of diamonds allow them to reflect each other’s light, producing incredible radiance. Their opulent look has made them popular in Hollywood over the decades. Here are some of our favorite styles worn by the stars.
Both Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe wore eternity bands as engagement rings. Why have one diamond when you can have more? Joe DiMaggio presented a platinum eternity band with 36 baguette cut diamonds to Monroe in 1954. While they divorced after only 274 days of marriage, DiMaggio had red roses delivered to Monroe’s crypt three times a week for the twenty years following her death.
Another style we love is the stacking of diamond bands – as worn by Jennifer Garner. Married to Ben Affleck in 2005, she wears three diamond bands and one plain band together, for a dazzlingly chic look.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are finally divorced after a messy legal battle, but we’re still in awe of her engagement ring and wedding band pair. A 20.5-carat emerald cut engagement ring is enhanced by an emerald cut eternity band, for completely over-the-top sparkle.
Kristin Cavallari – who married Chicago Bears’ Jay Cutler earlier this month – wears an asscher cut eternity band paired with her asscher cut engagement ring, set in four prongs. This pairing is a perfect style match – and we love Jay’s black wedding band too!
Not only does Blake Lively have Ryan Reynolds, she also has an incredible oval cut engagement ring in rose gold. Jealous, us? She wears a delicate diamond band as her wedding ring, and the two fit together beautifully. It keeps all the focus on that stunning oval cut diamond.
