What Is An Eternity Ring?


An eternity ring (or eternity band) features diamonds going all the way around the ring, creating an endless circle of diamonds. Eternity rings symbolize never-ending love. They differ from half eternity rings, which feature diamonds going halfway around the band, with the bottom half of the ring comprising of precious metal. Eternity rings are frequently gifted to celebrate milestones, like an anniversary or as a push present. However, you can use an eternity band as a wedding ring – there is no strict rule saying otherwise. 

Eternity rings come with varying stone shapes like round cut diamonds, princess cut diamonds, emerald cut diamonds, and more. 

For a vintage look, try an emerald cut eternity ring or an Asscher cut eternity ring. If you’re looking for a sleek, modern look, go for a princess cut or radiant cut eternity ring. Cushion or round cut diamonds are a classic & timeless choice. Round cut diamond eternity rings are the most popular as they flatter all engagement ring center stones. They also produce the most sparkle.

Which order do you wear engagement, wedding, and eternity rings?

Traditionally, your wedding ring should be on your left ring finger closest to your heart – so put it on first, followed by your engagement ring and eternity ring last. However, some people choose to wear their eternity ring on their right ring finger, which can be more comfortable if your engagement ring and wedding band are already thick.

Most people probably won’t even notice the order that you wear them. Wear your rings whichever way feels the most comfortable to you.

Can eternity rings be resized?

Eternity rings cannot be resized. Because eternity rings feature a full circle of diamonds, adding or taking away stones from the band may not guarantee that the ring will fit perfectly. Resizing may ruin the perfect circle of diamonds.

This is important to remember when buying an eternity ring. The size of your finger can change depending on the weather (fingers shrink in the cold and expand in the heat), may swell during pregnancy, or change size depending on weight gain or weight loss. We recommend that if you buy a ring from Ritani, you should try it on and make a return or exchange within your 30-day purchase window. Keep in mind that exchanging your eternity ring for another size will affect the price as a larger ring will have more diamonds and a smaller ring will have less.
