While travelling to a coastal town north of the State last week, I met a lady who has a golden ring on her finger with gemstones all around the ring. Being someone who is very interested with jewelry, I approached her and asked about the ring and later did some searching and reading in the internet.
The ring is known as Eternity Ring and hers is a Diamond Wedding Rings - Eternity Rings. It is really beautiful and after reading what it represents, I am more tempted. The diamond or gemstones themselves go all around the ring band creating thus 'eternity', which symbolizes love for eternity. This means the love of the giver will last for all eternity, it is never-ending as the circle of the ring of diamonds. Other than diamonds, strong gemstones that can withstand daily wear and tear are most suitable for eternity rings. These include Sapphires, Rubies, Tourmalines, Topaz, Amethyst and Citrine. Aquamarines, Emeralds and Opals are too soft to withstand daily wear and tear on an eternity ring. The metals for the band can be anything. The idea in my head now is how I can make an Eternity ring with wires! This way, I can make Eternity rings with my favorite gemstones. Wow! The combinations are endless.
One problem though is that I may be able to make Eternity ring with wire but it may be uncomfortable to wear as with the real eternity ring with metal band. The gemstones or diamond going all around the band may hurt the two side fingers as well as the palm. Yeah! This is very uncomfortable if not well done.
There are varieties of eternity ring styles, from vintage-inspired designs to sleek, modern pieces. The diamonds themselves can be cut in almost any style desired such as princess cut and emerald cut or round cut diamonds. It is personal preferences actually.
