Diamond Eternity Rings

diamond eternity ringsA diamond eternity ring features diamonds of the same shape and size in a continuous circle around the band offering an unsurpassed amount of brilliance, fire, and sparkle from every angle.

Eternity bands are simplistic and elegant.  They can be worn alone or are a great compliment to an engagement ring.  Diamond eternity rings can be purchased as an original wedding band or an anniversary band.   Diamond eternity rings make a great gift for that special milestone anniversary.  The traditional eternity ring contains all diamonds, but some contain diamonds with alternating gemstones or just gemstones.

Diamond Eternity Ring Designs

The most popular eternity ring design is the open basket shared prong design.  In an open basket design the diamonds are set at the same height allowing light to enter and flow through all the stones evenly.  The shared prongs allow the diamonds to be set using the least amount of metal possible, so all you see is the brilliance and fire of the stones.

Another popular eternity ring design is a channel set.  This setting allows for the diamonds to be set within the band providing a smooth surface.  Since light enters and exists through the table of the diamond this setting offers brilliance and fire with a more tailored look.

What diamond shapes are used and why?

The most popular diamond shape used for eternity rings is the round brilliant followed closely by the princess cut and radiant cut.  These shapes are known for their brilliance and fire and can be set very close together making them the perfect shape for any style eternity ring.    Over the past several years, asscher and emerald cuts have gained popularity and provide a very classic elegant look.

What diamond color and clarity is recommended and why?

For diamond eternity rings we recommend colorless or near colorless diamonds with a clarity rating of SI1 or better for round brilliant cut, princess cut, and radiant cut diamonds.  For asscher cut and emerald cut eternity rings we recommend colorless diamonds with a clarity rating of VS2 or better.

Three Stone Engagement Ring

Once known as an anniversary ring, three stone engagement rings have gained popularity over the past several years.  A three stone engagement ring represents a couple’s relationship – the past, the present, and the future.

The three stone engagement ring contains just that; 3 stones.  The traditional three stone design is a plain metal band with prong set white diamonds.  The diamonds are all the same shape and color with the center stone being slightly larger and set higher than the two side stones.

Today, three stone settings are available in a variety of designs.  While the traditional three stone is still extremely popular many couples are choosing settings with side stones of a different color or shape.  Prongs can be replaced with bezels and plain bands replaced with scroll work or small accent diamonds.

Creating a Three Stone Anniversary Ring Using Your Own Engagement Diamond

If you’re creating a three stone for an anniversary ring you have some options.

1. Use your engagement diamond as a side stone representing the past and choose a new center stone and second side stone as the present and the future.  The new center diamond should be slightly larger than the side stones.  When choosing new diamonds you’ll need to stay within the same color range if purchasing white diamonds.

2. Use your engagement diamond as the center stone and purchase two new side stones.
