Eternity rings are a powerful expression of eternal love and the cycle of life. Perfect for a special occasion such as a wedding anniversary or to celebrate the birth of a child.
Whatever the occasion, an eternity ring is a reminder of your loving relationship, an affirmation of your promises to each other and the perfect way to say ‘I love you’. This is why there is a continuous presence of identical stones all the way around the ring to echo your never-ending commitment.
Eternity rings in every style
Reaffirm your commitment with an eternity ring that complements any wedding and engagement ring combination. Created to complete your current set and be worn for a lifetime, it’s important to ensure your design is the right match – if that’s what you’d like.
At Joseph George Jewellery in Melbourne, you can choose from our exclusive collection of classic or custom-made eternity rings. Eternity ring styles come in a full-stone band or half-stone band if you prefer. Traditionally, diamonds are used, however it’s also common to choose other precious stones if they align with a specific anniversary, are your partner’s birth stone or favourite stone. Simply choose your stones, band style and metal in gold or platinum.
There’s no shortage of options at Joseph George Jewellery, and your ring design is only limited by your imagination. We can help you along every step of the way.
The occasion to gift an eternity ring
After engagement and marriage, it’s customary for a husband to gift his wife an eternity ring for a special anniversary or the birth of a child (usually the first).
It’s also important to remember that eternity rings aren’t just for married couples. It’s becoming more commonplace for others in committed relationships to gift a stand-alone eternity ring to their partners to symbolise special anniversaries or occasions, signifying their love and making promises to each other.

How to wear an eternity ring
Once you or your partner are ready to wear the eternity ring, it’s important to know what order to wear it in relation to other rings and how it’s worn by others.
In most countries, including Australia, your wedding band and engagement ring are worn on the left-hand ring finger (next to the little finger). Usually, the wedding band is put on first, followed by the engagement ring and finished off with the eternity ring. Of course, you’re not limited to wearing them in this order or finger and you may have other reasons why they can’t be worn like this. Don’t worry, there are no hard-and-fast rules to how you wear them and it will also depend on the style of each ring and how they sit with each other.
In some cases where the wedding band and engagement ring don’t match, the wedding ring is worn on the left-hand ring finger and the engagement ring is placed on the right-hand ring finger instead. Some women prefer to showcase the eternity ring on its own on the right hand, giving it pride of place, especially if it doesn’t match the engagement or wedding ring.
When choosing or designing your eternity ring, it’s helpful to keep in mind the current style of engagement and wedding ring your partner already owns – unless you want a completely stand-alone piece. This helps you to choose an eternity ring to complement the others so they can be worn together.
A modern approach to eternity ring design
It’s common for couples to be involved in the ring design process together, especially as this is a significant commitment to piece of jewellery which you’ll both treasure for a lifetime. We can help with choosing the engagement ring, wedding band and eternity ring. In many cases, we design all three in one process so that our couples can future-plan the look of their commitment band set.
The eternity ring is simply designed early on alongside the wedding band and engagement ring and given as a gift for an important milestone later. Some eternity and wedding bands are designed to act as a halo around the engagement ring, whilst others are a straight band which sits alongside or underneath the engagement ring centrepiece. In other cases, once it’s time to gift the eternity ring, we can fasten the three rings together if you prefer to slip them on together as one.
