During those times, the eternity rings were made from braided reeds or carved bone, and featured beads, carvings, and precious stones.

About thousands of years later, the concept of eternity rings was reshaped into a more streamlined design.

It is in the 19th century, diamond eternity bands were introduced into the market but didn’t acquire popularity until the late 1960s.


Types of Eternity Rings


It usually has 3 types depending on the number of diamonds and their settings:


  1. Full eternity diamond ring: Where the diamonds or the stones used are studded all around the circumference of the ring.


  1. Half eternity diamond ring: Where the ring is made of precious metal and has diamonds studded half-way around the circumference of the ring.


  1. Three-fourth eternity diamond ring: Where the diamonds are studded on the 3/4th portion of the surface leaving the rest of the portion blank.
