What do Eternity Rings Symbolise?

The Eternity Ring is a traditional gift to a loved one, but what does it symbolise?

History of Eternity Rings

The idea of the Eternity Ring was discovered by a diamond firm in 1960s. Despite the eternity ring being suitable for any age or gender, in the 60s it was mainly targeted at the older married generation and was initially targeted at women.

"She married you for richer or poorer. Let her know how it's going" This was the slogan of the eternity ring campaign when the ring was first designed as it was a symbol of financial stability, rather than a gift of everlasting love. 

In years gone by it was a tradition to give an eternity ring on the diamond wedding anniversary, which is the 60th year of marriage. But this is a thing of the past, the popularity amongst the giving of the eternity ring has changed to 1, 5 and 10 year anniversaries, which is completely understandable, why would you want to wait 60 years to give the ultimate declaration of everlasting love. Click here to find out Everything you need to know about eternity rings.
