The gift of an eternity ring can mean so many things. From an anniversary celebration, a significant milestone to a promise of eternal friendship and love, eternity rings are one of the greatest gifts one can give. Traditionally, the gift of an eternity ring is a powerful expression of commitment between two people often to mark a special wedding anniversary or a milestone in the relationship. Sometimes eternity rings are given to celebrate more than just love, like the birth of a first child or to honour an enduring friendship.
The history of eternity rings goes way back to 2000BC and the Ancient Egyptians. Men were known to give eternity rings to their wives as a token of eternal love and life, the designs varying from a simple band of metal to gemstone decorations to a snake swallowing its own tail – a common symbol used to represent eternity. Just like engagement rings and wedding rings, eternity bands are traditionally worn on the third finger of the left hand. This tradition is believed to come from the ancient Romans who thought that this finger had a vein that ran directly to the heart. They named the vein “Vena Amoris” which translates to “Vein of Love”. They assumed that by wearing a ring on this finger, they were symbolising a lifetime of love and devotion.
Eternity rings are not only special for their symbolic representation, but they are also something that the receiver is likely to wear and cherish for a lifetime. Because of this, its important to make sure you pick the style and design of the eternity ring carefully.
