What Are Diamond Eternity Wedding Bands?
Posted on May 16 2013
What is a diamond eternity wedding band? Diamond eternity wedding bands are rings where the diamonds go all the way around. This never ending circle of diamonds is why this type of ring got its name of ‘eternity.’ The diamonds flow in a continuous circle around the finger symbolizing eternal love. It’s because of its meaning that eternity wedding rings are often used as wedding bands and/or anniversary rings.
When buying an eternity wedding band, there are some things you need to know. One of the most important things to know is your finger size. Typically, most eternity rings are not able to be sized so it is important to purchase the correct finger size. Another import thing to know is which diamond shape you want. The most popular shape is round but, at deBebians.com, we also sell eternity rings with princess cut diamonds, cushion cut diamonds and even asscher cut diamonds. Another important thing to know is the style of setting you want. The most popular is the shared prong setting but eternity wedding bands are also available in a variety of settings including channel, u prong, shared prong, pave, bar and single prong also known as floating eternity bands.
Total diamond carat weight is also very important. Are you planning on wearing it next to your engagement ring or on your right hand all by itself? If you are planning on wearing it by itself, I personally would recommend 2.00cttw minimum. If the budget allows, I personally feel that 3.00cttw is even better! Who doesn’t want more diamonds? If you plan to wear the eternity ring alongside your engagement ring, you don’t want to overpower or take away from the engagement ring. Keep the setting styles the same. If your engagement ring features pave set diamonds, then I would recommend a pave eternity band. Remember to keep in mind to not overpower the center diamond. A good rule of thumb is to go two times the size of your center diamond. For example, if you have a 2ct center diamond, a 4.00cttw eternity band is the perfect complement.
All in all there are lots of things to consider when purchasing an eternity wedding band. If you have questions, seek the advice from a jewelry designer and try on different styles to see what looks best on your finger.
