Recently, mysterious eternity rings full of symbolism and hidden meanings appeared at the forefront of the glittering world of jewellery. Let’s take a look at them today.
Eternity ring – a ring without end and beginning?
An eternity ring is made to be a symbol of infinite love and life. It is a ring that decorates some part or the whole length of the circumference of diamonds or other gems which type and colour depend on the purchaser. The stones are usually cut into the same shape and are placed close together in a metal hoop. “Complete” eternity rings beautify precious stones completely – so we will not discover the beginning or end of the row. On the other hand, “half” eternity rings, as their name suggests, can only boast embedded gems in the upper half of the ring. Some argue that half-types are more practical. Others prefer elegant full rings because they better fit the idea of eternity and infinity.
