Traditional White Diamond and Modern Yellow Sapphire and Diamond Eternity Bands

By Gaby Schulz

Diamonds are indisputably beautiful, and few rings are as striking as eternity designs. Despite size and style limitations, there are many variations of eternities to choose from, so long as the couple acknowledges the ultimate purpose of the ring: to celebrate the eternity they hope to share with a love as unending as a circle of diamonds.

Another variation of "non eternal" diamond eternity ring, also called sometime anniversary ring is the 5 stone ring which is usually set with 5 diamonds of same size in a row. This ring shares the budget advantages of the half eternity ring and it is self positioning but it also shares its lack of eternity symbolism. The diamond eternity ring is a gift for an anniversary which constitutes that the parties (the giving and the receiving one) know well each other. Let this knowledge guide you for your choice of type of diamond eternity ring.

Diamonds are the most concentrated store of value that exists. They are tangible, portable and liquid investments that investors make privately. Investors can use diamonds without decreasing their value and they pay no property tax on their investment. Diamonds are a long-term, risky investment.

Because full eternity rings have stones around the entire finger, only smaller gems can be used for comfort. Half-eternity rings can use slightly larger stones, but large carat weights may start to resemble three stone rings or bridal sets rather than bands. Because of the number of stones used in eternity bands, the total weight of the band may be far greater than traditional engagement rings, and in order to make rings more affordable many consumers prefer smaller stones.

Diamonds can be bought loose, which means free of any mountings or set in a piece of jewelry. Loose diamonds are more liquid because if you need to sell one, you won't need to find someone who likes the setting. They are also much easier to assess and evaluate before purchase, something very important when buying with investment in mind.
