What does the Eternity ring mean?


In the world of jewellery the Eternity Ring is a symbol of everlasting love. The concept of infinite love through a solid ring of precious metal arose more than 2000 years ago in ancient Egypt. They believed that the continuous circle of the ring showed a timeless state of love throughout a human lifetime.

The Eternity ring is a fine example of jewellery that can be set or encrusted with many different types of gemstones including: Diamonds, Rubies, Sapphires, Amethyst, Quartz and Zircon. These stones also represent love and loyalty amongst partners throughout the world.

The eternity ring can also symbolise a special occasion, a birth of a child or a anniversary gift.

Tell your partner the reason for the gift, as its meaning can represent any everlasting promise.

If you are thinking about buying an Eternity ring for you’re partner, the most popular types are either a Full Eternity Ring, where stones are set all the way around the band or a Half Eternity Ring, where just the top facing part of the ring is set with stones.

The Half set Eternity ring is normally more popular due to how cumbersome a fully set band can be to wear. The half set sits more comfortably on the finger.

Some designs include:

  • Diamond set eternity ring
  • Round eternity ring
  • Princess eternity ring
  • Carre cut eternity ring
  • Baguette eternity ring
  • Channel set eternity ring
