What is an eternity ring & what do they mean?
A symbol of everlasting love, eternity rings are just as much of a promise of commitment as an engagement ring or wedding ring. Adorned with a continuing band of diamonds or gemstones, eternity rings are known to represent ever-lasting love.
If you’ve ever wondered about the history of eternity rings, they have been around for over 4,000 years and were first found in Ancient Egypt made from bone, beads and occasionally metal. Based on the symbol of infinity, the circular shape of the band historically represents the circle of life.
When do you get an eternity ring?
So, when do you buy an eternity ring? Eternity rings are traditionally given to mark significant milestones in a relationship. Symbolising the circle of life, an eternity ring makes the perfect gift for the birth of your first-born child, a special birthday, your wedding anniversary, or as an extra thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift. Ultimately, if it’s a meaningful day for you both, it’s worthy of a stunning eternity ring.
How to wear an eternity ring
Two of the most common questions when it comes to wearing this special ring are which order do you wear your engagement, wedding and eternity ring, and which finger do you wear an eternity ring on?
Tradition states it’s your wedding ring first, engagement ring second and then finally your eternity ring – all sitting on the fourth finger of your left hand, known as your ring finger.
Truth is though, it’s completely up to you. Some people like to wear their eternity ring on top of their wedding ring, with the engagement ring on last. Others feel like the three rings on one finger can feel too much so tend to wear their eternity ring separately on their right hand. If all three rings are going to be sat next to each other, we advise to go for the same precious metal so that they wear evenly over time.
