Eternity rings are so named for a really romantic reason. They feature diamonds that are set in a pattern all around the ring; this represents love that has no beginning, and no end. How lovely is that! All that romance in one small ring. No wonder eternity rings are becoming an increasingly popular choice as a wedding band, and as gifts for other special events as well, such as wedding anniversaries or the birth of a child. Any time you want to express your love is the perfect time to present an eternity ring.
Eternity rings can be simple, or lavish – and this is reflected in the price. For example, you’ll pay more for a “full” eternity ring than a “half” eternity ring. A “full” eternity ring features stones that are set all around the band in an ongoing pattern. On the other hand, a “half” eternity ring features stones just on the upward facing half of the band, with the other half left plain. As you’d expect, you’d generally pay less for this “half” version of an eternity ring. Then again, you might want to splash out. If you really want to do that by choosing a more lavish continuous pattern on a wider band, you could consider an anniversary ring.
To really express your love you can have an eternity ring custom made, so it incorporates some special pattern or design that means a lot to the lucky recipient. Some jewellers are better than custom making rings than others; they have experience and exquisite skills that others might lack. Because it represents something very special, your eternity ring should be made by the right person.
Whether you have your eternity ring custom made, or buy one that’s readymade, after sales service is very important. Look for a jeweller who will offer complimentary care of your ring, such as cleaning and inspecting of the ring. A quality jeweller will also share their knowledge and pass on advice on how to look after your ring at home. So don’t just take the word of a sales assistant who might know how to sell, but not know too much about the intricacies of jewellery. A jeweller with a profound knowledge of what they make and sell will tell you all you need to know about looking after your eternity ring, and they’ll happily do a fair share of that looking after for you.
An eternity ring is a very special thing, and deserves to be bought from a very special jeweller. As an expression of love, or as a mark of a very important occasion, it is only natural that you want that statement to be a grand one – and an ongoing one! An eternity ring from a quality jeweller will be well made, from the best materials, and will stand the test of time…just like a strong and loving relationship!
