Eternity Rings and Everything You Can Do With Them

Doesn’t the word ‘eternity’ mean an infinite amount of time? Well, some will say it means timelessness, like something that doesn’t have a beginning or an end. What if a piece of jewelry represented this timelessness? Wouldn’t that make the perfect gift?

But, while most things in life are fated to die, one thing that will last forever is love. How fitting and appropriate to mark the beginning of a lovely relationship with an eternal gift – The Eternity Ring.

We have a lot to share about the eternity ring in this post. So, we will not take much of your time and begin with the different queries you might have with the eternity ring. Let’s get started!

What Are Eternity Rings?

Now that you know what the idea behind eternity rings, it is  easier for us to take you through the nitty-gritty of it. An eternity ring is usually used as an engagement ring that has diamonds placed around the edges or circumference of the ring.

The rings are usually gifted by husbands to their wives and are traditionally worn by women. Often times, an eternity ring is gifted after a decade of marriage. Gifted as an extension to the original engagement ring, an eternity ring is a rededication of the love you have for your spouse.

How Should You Wear Eternity Rings?

So, this is one of the most asked questions about eternity rings. How should you wear it? While there’s so much debate around this, traditionally speaking, the ring is worn on the ring finger, which is adjacent to the pinky finger on the left hand. Also, the ring should be worn after you wear the wedding and engagement rings. So, the wedding ring goes first, the engagement ring goes second, and the eternity ring goes third.

Difference Between Eternity Ring and Infinity Ring

Wait a minute, if eternity rings symbolize ‘timelessness’, what do infinity rings do? There’s much confusion between eternity and infinity rings. While both the rings might mean the same, they differ in many aspects.

First of all, infinity rings have that infinity symbol somewhere on the ring. It can be along the band or where the diamond would normally rest. The very design of the infinity ring is conceptualized on the symbol and its application.

Secondly, the infinity rings are not just worn for marriage purposes. They are pretty much a style or fashion statement these days. People wear them all the time. However, eternity rings are usually worn by people who are married. And then there is the concept of full eternity and half eternity!

Proposing To Someone With An Eternity Ring

That’s quite an interesting thought. Well, proposing someone is the first thing you do to get married isn’t it? Although you are not technically married, the feeling and the emotions attached to the ring can be the same, right?

We have seen people use the eternity rings during a proposal so it’s not something unheard of. Reason? Convenience! Eternity rings are much easier to choose from. Engagement rings are quite difficult to go through as there are so many different designs and options to choose from.

Laugh all you want, but it can really get hard for men to get the design right. Well, eternity rings can also do the job because the emotions attached to ring-giving are quite the same. So, yes, you can propose to someone with an eternity ring as well.
