Eternity Rings

When your wedding day begins drawing closer you’ll need to begin thinking about your wedding bands. Men naturally opt for the plain platinum, silver or gold bands however for women the options are endless and today, thanks to the range of specialist jewellers whether the small local companies or large world-renowned brands; the thought of having even more diamonds are too good to resist.

From claw set to channel set, to princess cut and round cut; today eternity rings are growing becoming a popular alternative to wedding bands. Traditionally meant to commemorate an anniversary or the birth of a child; the symbol of endless love makes it the must have choice.

Not sure whether you want the traditional wedding band option or whether an eternity ring is the best idea? Below are a few basic facts and points that may hopefully help you make the right choice for the special woman in your life…

  • Eternity rings are called so as they are considered a symbol of everlasting, eternal love. In many instances the rings are often even used in place of a standard engagement ring as they are deemed more meaningful.
  • Rings are commonly stone set.
  • Full-set rings are often considered impractical as the diamonds are more likely to chip and be exposed to daily wear and tear
  • Half-set rings are the most popular choice as the diamonds sit perfectly on the top head of the band for maximum show, complimenting the engagement ring and adding additional dazzle!
  • Today it is used in many different occasions but the eternity ring dates back to Egyptian times where it was used as a token of eternal love.
  • The 4C’s are essential when shopping for a ring. The cut, colour, clarity and carat of the diamond should be considered before you make any decisions.
  • Although not essential, choosing the same metal setting as the engagement ring is considered the best choice although in many instances women have opted to mix and match but it really is all a matter of personal tastes.
  • The majority of the rings use princess cut or round diamonds in channel or claw settings of different widths.

Personalized Rings

  1. Choose a monogrammed ring. Monogrammed rings are a classic type of personalized ring, particularly popular among men. Choosing a block style font is the perfect choice for men, with its masculine look and its sophisticated design. For women, a cursive script is classic and elegant.
  2. Choose a name ring. Name rings are a hot trend in jewelry, with some of the hippest Hollywood trendsetters wearing them on the red carpet. Name rings are ideal for teens and young women who love expressing their individuality.
  3. Choose a personalized promise ring. Promise rings are popular among older teens and college students who want to express deep commitment without getting engaged. To make that ring extra-special, consider having the ring engraved with the names of the couple.
  4. Choose a birthstone ring. Birthstones are a not a new or revolutionary concept in jewelry, and are sometimes overlooked in favor of newer styles. Each stone has its own individual look, and even the semi-precious stones are beautiful.
  5. Choose a family ring. This is a great choice for mothers, especially! You can have a ring engraved with names of the children or grandchildren in the family, or have one set with the birthstones of the children.
  6. Engrave a special message to carry always. Whether a father-to-daughter message like, “Daddy’s Little Girl” or a husband-to-wife “True Love Forever” the message can have a lifetime of meaning and significance to the wearer.
  7. Personalize your wedding ring. One of the times in your life when you purchase a ring for a specific function is when you select your wedding ring. Consider having the date of your wedding or your names engraved on the inner portion of the ring.

Wear Stacked Rings

Stacked rings as the name rightly suggests means wearing or stacking multiple rings on a single finger. Since the rings are going minimal, the quantity of rings is going higher. Stacked rings are becoming a must-try trend. It is slowly coming in the limelight and is grabbing attention without screaming ‘I am big and I need attention’. It is like they are commanding it without doing much. There are no rights or wrongs as to how many rings you should stack at a time. It’s all about creating something unique. Wearing a ring on every finger can be a bit tricky. If you are one of those kinds who can rock just about anything, go ahead! But if you are not that much of an ace when it comes to fashion, do avoid stacking rings on each and every finger. That will flat out make you look like a hippy. That is fine if you are looking to adopt that style.

Mixing different materials and metals while stacking your rings makes it look rich and that you’ve put in some thought and creativity and time. Play around with colors and textures. Don’t be afraid to mix gold, rose gold, platinum or silver. They add a variety and make you look like a true fashionista. Mix different sizes like bands with thin rings. You get the drift, right? An ornate ring can be mixed with ‘barely there’ rings.

Minimalistic rings can be mixed with an oversized cocktail ring. They are enough to draw that needed attention. If going over the top is not you, then you can simply stack multiple thin rings and look effortlessly chic. Sterling silver ring or a thin gold ring or a band is something that looks timeless. Another way to add a rocking edgy twist to this is to stack on some midi rings. Midi rings are rings that are worn halfway just above the knuckles, usually a centimeter above.

Cheap Jewelry Rings

  1. Know you budget limit
    When you go out for shopping, always remember your budget. Buy and look for only those rings that come in your budget. It is sometime that you end up with the temptation of buying some other fancy rings that is far beyond your budget. It will just give you extra tensions.
  2. Which metal do you want
    The choice of most of the people is platinum which is too expensive. Those people who are after a silver look can try white gold. White gold rings are gaining more popularity nowadays. They look almost like the platinum and have the durability of gold as well. You can get white gold at half the price of what gold costs. Titanium rings are also popular in the market with their ultra light weight, durability and extremely cheaper price. But silver is the best option if you are looking for really cheap rings.
  3. Weight counts
    Metals are priced by their weight. The heavier and thicker your ring is, the higher the price will be. By going for thinner rings, you can substantially bring the cost down. Looking for more fancy rings can make the cost higher.

Opal Diamond Rings

Most engagement ring designers know, for example, that opal is extremely fragile and breakable, which is in stark contrast to even a standard diamond. This makes this type of gemstone definitely not recommended for people with an active lifestyle. Neglecting to remove an opal ring before engaging in any type of slightly more demanding activity will almost certainly result in the jewel cracking or taking on a rough appearance.

Similarly, opal is extremely sensitive to heat, which may also present a problem for brides and grooms wanting one of these stones on their ring. Plus, these stones should not be subject to sudden changes in temperature and can be affected by something as simple as stepping out of a centrally-heated house into a frosty winter day. For these reasons and more, engagement ring designers try as much as possible to detract their customers from acquiring opals.

Braver souls who feel they can cope with the challenge of having one of these stones on their engagement ring will, however, need to take a number of special precautions to ensure the stone’s maintenance. Opals should, for instance, be polished regularly with a soft cloth and soap and room temperature water. Owners of an opal engagement ring should also avoid dipping the stone in water or chemical solutions, as they can cause the opal’s layers to separate.

Even more importantly, these stones should not be left anywhere where they may be exposed to the elements and, again, this includes things as common as open windows or radiators. Opal owners living in dry climates need to also make sure that the stone is permanently hydrated, preferably by a piece of cotton inside a sealed plastic bag.
