What Do Eternity Rings Symbolize?
An eternity ring, which can also be referred to as an infinity ring. They symbolize never-ending love and usually are given on milestones, like a significant anniversary, the birth of a new baby and other special occasions.
It is usually a band of precious metal set with a continuous line of identically cut gemstones for instance emeralds, rubies and diamonds!
The History of Eternity Rings
Eternity rings were originally brought to attention by the ancient Egyptians. Around 2000-1800 BC the circle was a very powerful symbol which represented eternity and eternity rings are believed to be present in this time.
It has been found that ancient Egyptian rings were made of many different materials, such as braided reeds, carved bone and metal. Each of these rings had carvings, beads and gems in common, that were featured around the entirety of the band. This has progressed into modern society today; what we know as an eternity ring.
Reasons to Buy an Eternity Ring
Many people purchase an eternity ring for wedding anniversaries, relationship anniversaries, a gift to a friend and a birth of a baby. They can be very meaningful as they combine two classic symbols of everlasting love: the never-ending circle of the ring and enduring, beautiful diamonds. Even the name emphasizes the concept of “forever”. This is why they are so perfect for commemorating important events in life.
On the other hand, people may buy eternity bands for the way the rings look. They can either be worn on their own or they are also great stacked with other rings.
How to Wear an Eternity Ring
There is no set way to wear an eternity ring, so it’s really up to you. A popular way is to wear it on the ring finger on your left hand sitting on top of both the wedding ring and engagement ring. This can look truly stunning if all your rings work together.
Another common way is wearing all three rings together is to place the wedding ring on the ring finger, followed by the eternity ring and then the engagement ring. Since wedding bands and eternity rings usually look similar, they will pair wonderfully.
Sometimes women might choose to move their eternity ring to the fourth finger on their right hand, keeping the wedding ring and engagement ring on their left hand.
