Eternity rings have become extremely popular for both their beauty and their symbolism, and as well as finding a place in fashion jewelry, they’ve become some of the most desired modern wedding bands. The different style possibilities for eternity rings are practically endless, as the metal color and type options, setting style, diamond grade, and diamond/precious stone combination allows eternity rings to be tailored to every individual.
Caring for eternity rings should be approached the same way one would clean and maintain any piece of fine jewelry; this is best left to professionals who will have the proper supplies and machines to clean your eternity bands and will check the condition of the ring and the security of each stone in its setting in the process. If you need to clean your eternity band at home, simply wash it with liquid soap and warm water and wipe the ring with a soft cloth.
Eternity bands are sometimes difficult to make, as they are most often sold by total carat weight and thus limited to an exact stone size to form the right size circle for each different wearer’s finger. Caring for eternity rings can be done at home to a degree– most jewelry benefits from a simple soap and water rinse now and then, but to remove heavy dirt and oil buildup or tarnish, you should take your eternity rings to a jeweler for safe, proper maintenance.
Although the diamond eternity band is here to stay, many new styles to suit different tastes have cropped up, and many retailers offer birthstone ternity rings and designs alternating other gems with diamonds. Diamonds are forever, as the saying goes, and when this sentiment meets the symbolism of eternal love embodied by the wedding ring, eternity bands are the stunning result.
The eternity ring, formed by making a solid circle of gems around the band, can be created in many ways. An assortment of settings as radically different as the single prong, shared prong, and pave styles can be found, and very old gem setting technique such as channel setting and bezel setting lends themselves well to this style.
