Whether it’s to mark a milestone in a relationship, a special anniversary or the arrival of a new baby; a bespoke eternity ring remains a revered gift between partners. The concept of the eternity ring dates back to Egyptian times where they were gifted as a token of eternal love and life (not necessarily to mark a special occasion). Much like wedding and engagement rings, the idea of the endless circle represented a couples everlasting love for one another.
Modern day diamond/stone encrusted eternity rings have only been around for about 70 years after being introduced by British diamond company DeBeers in the 1960s. The idea of rededicating your love for one another after a decade of marriage, traditionally a full diamond set band was gifted and placed on top of the engagement and wedding rings.
Fast forward to the 21st century and the so-called rules and traditions are more open to interpretation so when it comes to the design of the eternity ring, when you gift it and how you wear it… there is no ‘right’ and ‘wrong’! Early style eternity rings would consist of a complete band of diamonds, known as a ‘full’ eternity ring. A ‘half’ eternity ring is another option – giving you more scope with larger stones and variation in design. The meaning behind a diamond is ‘eternity’, however, coloured diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires and other precious stones are also suitable in the creation of your ring.
At Blair and Sheridan we have a raft of commissions on display in our online gallery. Many customers have an idea of what they are looking for design-wise, however, we can help guide you and talk you through precious stone and metal selection as well as the design of your eternity ring.
Blair and Sheridan are Scotland’s leading bespoke jeweller working both with traditional natural diamonds and Lab Grown diamonds. This offers you even more options in the creation of your design – learn more about Lab Grown diamonds here.
