Once sold with the slogan “she married you for richer or poorer. Let her know how it’s going” the eternity ring is a lady’s ring that is typically given to her by her husband to celebrate having been married for a period of time. The eternity ring is usually given on a significant anniversary although it is down to the discretion of the couple as to exactly which anniversary this should be.
De Beers are credited with the creation of the first eternity ring, as they attempted to find a way to avoid the stockpiling of smaller Soviet diamonds. These diamonds were typically less than 0.25 carats and this meant creating a new range of rings that bucked the trend of wearing a single diamond set on precious metal. In fact, the eternity ring design is one that is clearly and evidently very different to the design of a ring containing a single diamond.
The eternity ring is usually made from a precious metal, most commonly gold. Into the metal, a continuous band of stones is set. This continuous band of diamonds is said to represent undying love. As some wearers complained of the cumbersome nature of having diamonds set right around the ring band, a half eternity ring was created which featured diamonds that were set only on the front face of the ring.
