Am I the only one fascinated by Eternity Bands?
Didn't think so, and guess what else is fascinating about them? They have some history, although they don't have anything too creepy surrounding their use, their symbolism is sweet.
Although the history of the Eternity ring's design dates far back to the 18th century, they're becoming popular again, but added symbolism that was attached to them back in the 60's by De Beers.
An eternity ring only differs slightly from your typical ring. It's a ring that usually has diamonds or gems surrounding the entire circumference with a shape resembling a wedding band. The eternity ring was basically marketed by using the continuous strand of diamonds or gems that trail the entire band as a way to signify "eternal love," which makes these rings unique in their very own way.
A "half-eternity" ring features gems or diamonds only across the face of the band rather than all the way around.
Eternity rings are often gifted as an anniversary or special occasion between spouses, or even as an engagement ring. Obviously, any ring can be a wedding ring, and eternity rings have been popular for that occasion as well.
"Eternity" jewelry doesn't end with finger-decor. You can also show your everlasting love in the form of a necklace,
if eternity jewelry is your preferred choice of showing this love.
Can't have one without the other, so you will be seeing my most favored eternity necklaces Sunday night. In the meantime, let me share 5 of my absolute Avianne and Co. eternity ring favorites with ya'll.
|Women's Diamond Baguette Eternity Band|
Of all the beautiful Eternity bands I've seen, this Baguette Eternity Band really captured my eye because I am a sucker for baguette cut diamonds. The shape isn't quite as soft as a round cut diamond, but a little more modern-day bride. Then the smaller round cut diamonds that line the edges contributes to its elegance. The contrast of the two different cuts combined in the one band make this a total knockout.
But for the other side of me, who happens to fancy a nice round cut diamond on a nice, rounded band, this Women's Diamond Pave Eternity Band really "hits the spot."
|Diamond Pave Eternity Band|
The various shapes of round cut, pave-set diamonds create for you one big, rounded, finger full of diamonds. (And ain't nobody gonna' complain about that!)
The colorful side of me, which usually overrides my other tastes, can't resist the Vibrant Princess Cut Sapphire Round Prong Set Diamond Gemstone Ring (a mouth full!)
Those gorgeously princess cut royal blue (ahem, I mean Sapphire, but I tend to call this one royal blue) gems, against those perfectly rounded diamonds is truly breath-taking. That phrase is used a lot, but if ever it were to fit an object, this would be it... okay, a lot of jewelry is certainly breath-taking, but it applies here so well that I couldn't help but running the risk of sounding lame. Stop judging me and set your eyes on that beauty one more time before you scroll.
I could easily spend an eternity (pun intended) listing eternity rings that I adore, but nothing last forever, right? I mean, eventually, I would get tired or I'd become so old that I wouldn't even remember what an eternity band was, much less be capable of posting photos of the ones I like. So, I was pretty much lying. It would be impossible to spend an actual eternity showing off my favorites that I find, but the point is, we're coming to an end here and I've got one last beauty to share.
Drum roll, please.
I said, drum roll, please!
Now you see just how much that drum roll really was called for, huh?
This Women's Diamond Eternity Band is nothing short of stunning, and when I saw it, it struck me as the kind of diamond ring that pretty much every single girl would find perfect, no matter your taste. I could be wrong, but I'm almost comfortable speaking for all of us here!
Am I wrong, ladies? Would you wear this (or how about the others listed?) Eternity Band with giddy laughter and glee? Or could you take it or leave it? How about that Sapphire baby up there?
Hope to hear ya'll's opinions on Eternity Bands tonight (or whichever night/day you happen to read this post).
Do you already own yourself an Eternity Ring? If so, share how you were gifted it and what your thoughts were. Photos? Would love to see!
