The Story Of Eternity Rings

Eternity rings are also referred to as infinity rings. They symbolise an eternity of love and are usually given on significant anniversaries to celebrate the milestone of the relationship. They can, however, be used for other milestones, such as the birth of a new baby and other special occasions.

The ring features a band of precious metal, which is usually gold, and a line of identical cut gemstones, such as emeralds, rubies, and diamonds, of course.

Are you looking to solidify your love with an eternity ring? Let’s take a look back to when eternity rings were first introduced.

The History Of Eternity Rings

We know that eternity rings are considered very romantic and thoughtful gifts to your significant other – and ancient Egyptians are the ones who introduced the rings and gave them the attention they deserved. It’s believed that the rings were present as early as 2000 – 1800 BC when the circle was an exceptionally powerful symbol that represented eternity and nothing less.

Thanks to archaeologists, they found that the ancient Egyptian rings were made from various different materials. They consisted of carved bone, braided reeds and metal, so nothing quite like they are made now! Each of the rings that were discovered had carvings, beads, and gems that were shown around the ring band.

Ancient cultures created the symbol to represent perfection, holiness, and peace. In the 18th century, they were extremely popular and so the promise ring trend grew, although gemstones were only available at that time. By the 19th century, those who were wealthier would choose diamonds over gemstones.

Why Diamond Eternity Rings?

Diamonds are one of the most popular stones in eternity rings because of their rarity, and they are known as one of the strongest substances that can be found on Earth. This makes it an ultimate symbol of strength, love, and commitment.

Traditionally, the eternity ring is worn on the ring finger after the wedding and engagement ring. This tradition dates back to ancient Egypt when it was thought a vein on the 4th finger on the left hand ran directly to the heart. This is referred to as the Vena Amoris. It still remains a great and well-kept tradition for something that is untrue.
