How to Wear an Eternity Ring

For many people, jewelry is more than just flash and pretty. Jewelry has a special meaning. This is particularly true when it comes to the idea of an eternity ring. An eternity ring symbolizes never-ending love between two people. We want to tell you what an eternity ring is, how to best wear one, as well as which rings in the Heidi Daus jewelry collection qualify as such.

What is an Eternity Ring?

An eternity ring typically consists of a continuous band of cut gemstones. The band of jewels is eternal, just like your love! They are a symbol of eternal love and a promise of lifelong commitment.

You should wear your eternity ring on the ring finger of the left hand. Some people place the eternity ring between the wedding band and engagement ring. Others begin wearing only the eternity ring. It's your jewelry, so it's your choice!

The popularity of eternity rings is growing each year. The origin of these pieces can be traced back to around 4,000 years ago. Ancient Egyptians used them as tokens of both eternal love and life. Some ancient designs also featured a snake devouring its own tail, symbolizing the circle of life and death. Then, they regained their popularity in the 1960s, thanks to the famous DeBeers diamond merchants. Due to the fact that those diamonds were small, DeBeers came up with the idea of mounting them in gold or platinum bands and advertised them as gifts. The idea was a hit, and we still love them today!

Eternity rings have been a traditional gift between lovers for decades, particularly for an anniversary. These rings represent elegance and signifying eternal love between two people. They can also symbolize the circle of life. They are sometimes given to a partner after the birth of a child, marking the beginning of yet another journey of eternal love.

Eternity Rings From Heidi Daus

Eternity rings come in 'half-eternity' or 'full-eternity' styles. The type you choose will entirely depend on your preferred design. Full-eternity rings have stones set in a continuous line all around the band.  Some women feel the presence of stones all the way around the ring is uncomfortable and cumbersome to wear. The alternative is to have the stones across the face of the ring only, which is a half-eternity ring. 

We're so proud to have Heidi Daus jewelry that meets this criteria. Here are some of our favorite half-eternity ring options:

HEIDI DAUS®"Bunny Garden" Crystal Bunny Ring

This ring has gemstones going part-way down the sides of the band, making it a half-eternity ring. There's so much more to love about this ring than just that, though. This sweet ring is perfect for spring. It features a generously sized fuchsia center stone surrounded by sweetly sparkling crystal pavé floral accents. It is generously decorated with fuchsia, light rose, rose, light siam, light colorado topaz, tangerine, light topaz, peridot, olivine, sapphire, aquamarine, and violet color crystals. This is all of the colors of spring!

HEIDI DAUS®"Fabulous Feng Shui" Crystal Crystal Oversized Ring

If you're looking to make a statement, this is the ring to do it. Our "Fabulous Feng Shui" Swarovski Crystal Ring means all eyes will be on you as soon as you step in the room. This stunning Asian-inspired ring showcases an oversize oblong diamond crystal, set on a classic Heidi Daus bronze band covered with hematite crystal pavé. The gemstones extend down the band, making this another half-eternity ring. 

We love this ring in classic crystal clear because it looks like a diamond, but other color options include black, blue, pink, green, topaz AB, light green, violet, light blue, and crystal golden shadow. You may just find yourself wanting more than one! While this fabulous ring certainly needs no accompaniment,it does pair well with other watches and bangles. 

Gemstones represent love. For this reason, the meaning of an eternity ring is everlasting love. The half-eternity rings you'll find in our collection are both gorgeous and a fantastic representation of your undying affection for one another. We're so happy to be able to be a part of your love story!
