Why Eternity Rings Still Make the Perfect Gift

Women's Wedding and Eternity Rings

Giving the gift of rings as a symbol of your undying love isn’t a new concept. It dates back 4000 years when the ancient Egyptians carved rings from metal and bone to prove their love for each other!

Nowadays, eternity rings are commonly associated with older generations of couples, traditionally those who have been married for anywhere from ten years to sixty years. That said, many modern couples would rather not wait around to declare a lifetime of love to their partner, and some people buy eternity rings after just one year of marriage.

Here’s why eternity rings return for those wanting to keep the romance alive.

They can be used to celebrate any occasion.

From an anniversary to the birth of your first child, an eternity ring is an affirmation of love and a constant reminder of the milestones you’ve been through with your partner. It’s common in families to pass eternity rings down each generation, which is why they’re almost always created from precious, long-lasting metals.

They symbolise your ever-lasting love.

In a world that’s increasingly putting pressure on relationships and lowering expectations about marriages that go the distance, show your partner that the two of you are strong enough to stand the test of time.

A popular style of eternity ring has three stones, each symbolising a different era of your relationship: the past, present, and future.

They’re a special “just because” gift.

You married for richer or poorer, and an eternity ring is a special surprise gift for your other half. Show them how much you still care, and watch their face light up as they open that tiny little box! Flowers wilt, but diamonds last forever, so disregard the rule book and treat your partner to a piece of jewellery made to last a lifetime just because you feel like it.

Don’t believe in marriage, or just haven’t got around to it yet? An eternity ring is a symbolic way to show you’re in your relationship for the long haul.

Which type of eternity ring should you choose?

There are two main categories of eternity rings:

  1. Half gem set, where the front half of the band is covered with gems
  2. Complete gem set, which forms a continuous circle of gems around the band

If the ring will be worn on the left hand, choose a style based on the existing bridal set, as it should complement and enhance your current collection. However, remember there are no rigid rules here, and you can feel free to wear your new ring on the opposite hand, allowing you to try a completely new style that doesn’t need to match your wedding ring.

Diamonds are the most popular gemstone, but many couples prefer coloured gemstones that hold a special significance to them. For example, a ruby marks a 15th wedding anniversary.
