A full circle of diamonds represents never-ending love unlike any other piece of jewellery. The eternity ring is, in its simplest form, a band of precious metal set with a continuous line of gemstones. Ancient Egyptians believed that marriage reached beyond the limits of human life, and today’s tradition of the eternity ring shares the same sentiment. It is a popular choice for a wedding ring of the modern bride, as well as a favoured ring given to symbolically celebrate important anniversaries. They can be simple, rendered in white gold or platinum with a row of bright and lively diamonds, or they can have an alternating pattern of coloured stones (such as sapphires or rubies) set between diamonds.
Many today choose to wear eternity rings in a stacked fashion, either underneath their engagement ring as a wedding band, or layered with other eternity rings that symbolise important moments, such as the birth of a child or a 10-year wedding anniversary.
The symbolism of an eternity ring is indicated in its name: the unbroken line of gemstones represents a never-ending of love. Romantic and timeless, these rings make a perfect wedding band or sentimental reminder of an important moment in life. Recently, eternity bands have also been used as engagement rings: King Felipe VI of Spain gave Queen Consort Letizia an eternity ring set with baguette-cut diamonds as an engagement ring in 2003.
Bentley & Skinner carries an extensive range of eternity rings for immediate purchase, as well as creation of bespoke rings. In addition to the full diamond eternity rings, Bentley & Skinner also offer half eternity rings which have a row of stones set within only half of the band, in a wide choice of coloured gems as well as different sizes and cuts of dazzling diamonds.
