A brief history of eternity rings

An eternity ring is a piece of jewellery that represents love and commitment. The ring is designed to be passed down from generation to generation, symbolising the everlasting love between two people.

While many different styles of eternity rings are available, they can trace their origins back thousands of years ago when ancient Egyptians wore simple bands with engravings as symbols of eternal love. These bands – often made out of gold or silver – were meant to be durable enough for daily wear yet still beautiful enough for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays or any other celebration.

What are eternity rings?

An eternity ring is a symbol of love. It is usually worn on the left hand, but it can also be worn on the right if you prefer.

Eternity rings are often made from gold or platinum, but other metals may also be used. Traditionally, diamonds are set in them, though other stones such as ruby and sapphire can be used instead, or as well.

Types of eternity ring

When shopping for eternity rings, you’ll come across many choices. Our eternity rings are all handmade, to the highest quality. We use only the finest materials and craftsmanship to ensure that you receive a ring that will last for years to come.

Jewellers traditionally set eternity rings with stones all the way around the band, but we also make them with a 60% or 40% spread.

The metal options

Our eternity rings are available in any precious metal or can come in a mix. We suggest matching your metal to your existing rings.

Gold is a popular choice for eternity rings because it has a warm colour that pairs well with diamonds. Platinum is also very popular and looks great with diamonds, but is more expensive than gold. And, whilst silver isn't as popular as either of those two options, its low price point makes it a more affordable choice.

The stone options

The stone options are nearly endless for getting an eternity ring. The most popular choices for eternity rings include diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and topaz. Choosing a coloured stone will give you a unique style.

Eternity rings are a timeless symbol of everlasting love

We want you to love the rings you wear. Knowing the different types of rings and their traditional meanings will help you choose a style that represents the love and life you share. 

Eternity rings are a symbol of love that lasts forever. When you give an eternity ring to your loved one, you're saying your love is precious, just like the ring itself. They'll wear it as a reminder of how special they are to you.
