How to Buy an Ethical Eternity Ring
Intention to buy an eternity ring online can open a gateway to questions about significance, style and occasion so Valerio Jewellery is here to offer expert advice and help you decide on an eternity ring that suits your beloved, your budget and your beliefs.
The meaning of an eternity ring
The ultimate symbol of everlasting love, the eternity ring is often given to mark a milestone or special occasion in a relationship, from the birth of a child to a wedding anniversary. Dating back to Ancient Egypt, the tradition of giving an eternal band – with no beginning or end – as a token of eternal love and the cycle of life continues today.
Whether it is a simple elegant band of Fairtrade gold or silver, a beautiful loop of gemstones that are significant to your relationship or the anniversary for which the ring if gifted; or a more lavish full eternity ring encrusted with stunning conflict-free diamonds – Valerio Jewellery is sure to have the perfect eternity ring for your partner. What is more, we can advise on the best ethical eternity ring to sit beautifully alongside your ethical engagement ring and wedding ring.
Half eternity rings
Set with conflict free diamonds or ethical gemstones to halfway around the band, the number of precious stones may well represent a significant number of years in a relationship. While a half eternity ring would be expected as less valuable and less costly than a full eternity ring, this is not always the case. The value of the ring, and its ethical beauty, will be determined by the size and quality of the non-conflict diamonds and / or traceable gemstones with which it is set and the way in which it is set.
Channel set – stones are set flush between the two edges of the Fairtrade gold ring to give the stones a timeless rounded appearance such as our Diamond and Ruby Fairtrade Gold Eternity Ring.
Grain set – four small claws are used on four points of the gemstone which gives a more square shape to the stones and presents a more vintage look like our Grain Set Diamond Fairtrade Eternity Ring.
Bezel set – a raised collar is used to encase the rim of the diamond in Fairtrade gold for a more secure fastening, as with our Double Bezel Set Divine 7 Diamond Eternity Ring.
Full eternity rings
With the full sparkle of diamonds or your chosen gemstones around the entire ring, a full ethical eternity ring is a prized possession indeed. Full eternity rings are most often given for a special anniversary e.g. a ruby eternity ring for a 40th wedding anniversary, a sapphire eternity ring for a 45th wedding anniversary, an emerald eternity ring for a 55th wedding anniversary or a diamond eternity ring for a 60th wedding anniversary.
