Eternity Ring Buying Guide

When you are looking to buy an eternity ring, you will want to make sure you are well educated on what different options you have available. Eternity rings are a beautiful way to display your loving affection for your beloved because they are the perfect gift for just about any special occasion or holiday. Eternity rings have been around for over 4,000 years and are a symbol of eternal love and unity. Eternity rings have stones that surround the entire band of the ring.

The first thing you want to do when you are going to buy an eternity ring is to create a design that is to your personal liking. Because eternity rings have stones going full circle around the band, you must know the exact size you want the ring to be because once the stones are set you will not be able to have the ring resized. That is why most jewellers do not carry a large selection of eternity rings readily available for purchase. In fact, many require that the customer come in and have the eternity ring personally created for them.

Now that you have a design in mind, you must choose what type of metal you want your eternity ring to be. Modern eternity rings can be found in either yellow gold, white gold, or platinum. No one metal is better than the other, so again this is a personal preference for the buyer.

As well as being able to select the precious metal you want your eternity ring to be made from you, must also decide whether you want a full eternity ring or a half eternity ring. A full eternity ring will have your choice of stones that go all the way around the band without a starting point or an ending point therefore giving the ring its name- eternity ring. You can also choose to have your eternity ring in a half, which only has the stones going across the face of the band. Half eternity rings are usually easier to create and size, consequently making them more affordable.

The last thing you will want to do to finish creating your eternity ring is choose what type of stones you want you ring to have. The most popular choices are diamonds because they represent love and eternity just like the eternity ring. Other stones that you may choose include emeralds, rubies, sapphires, or any other precious stone or birthstone. Getting the right shape like a round cut or square cut will be just as important in creating a beautiful eternity ring.
