Not Merely Plain Round Diamonds Anymore: the Newest Eternity Wedding Band

By Ann Daniels

Diamonds are forever, as the saying goes, and when this sentiment meets the symbolism of eternal love embodied by the wedding ring, eternity bands are the stunning result. The eternity ring gets its name because it combines two of the most meaningful pieces of eternal love symbolism surrounding the wedding ring. The first, that the circle of circle symbolizes eternity because it has no beginning and no end, and the second, the idea that diamonds are forever, meet to result in these rings, formed by a full circle of diamonds or other gems in the setting of your choice. We've all heard the saying "Diamonds are a girl's best friend", and this is a sentiment that makes stunning diamond eternity rings such a great choice when finding the perfect wedding ring, engagement ring, or gift.

Diamond eternity rings can be seen in a number of equally lovely and striking designs and settings in order to provide eternity rings for every customer's style and taste. These setting styles and methods include: shared prong, single prong, bar setting, u shape, channel setting, pave, four prong, bezel, and micro pave. A good eternity rings retailer will make rings to order for each customer, which takes more of a time investment but is assuredly worth it.

Eternity bands can be difficult to make because rings are sold by carat total weight, so for each ring ordered all the stones need to be a uniform color, shape, and size so the circle they form will look good, add up to the proper carat total weight, and fit the wearer's finger. This kind of precision which makes eternity rings something of a challenge is also, of course, the trait that makes them so attractive and special.

Eternity bands are easy to care for when it comes to everyday upkeep-- most build up caused by oil and dirt from skin, cosmetics, and one's environment can be removed by washing your diamond eternity rings in warm water with liquid soap and a soft cloth. But if your jewelry seems to need a more thorough cleaning, take it to a jeweler where it will be professionally cleaned with methods that won't damage it.

If diamonds aren't your style, or you like them but want a bit more color in your eternity bands, you won't be left out! Many jewelers now stock and custom make eternity rings with rubies, emeralds, black diamonds, and blue, yellow, or pink sapphires.
