Eternity rings have been in the trendy limelight as wedding bands, not just because they’re far more beautiful and stunning than their plain gold counterparts, but because both the name and the endless circle of those ever symbolic diamonds—hard, durable, lasting—ramp up the meaning of the ring by at least a carat. The style was introduced by DeBeers in the 1960s, presumably as a way to use a number of small diamonds they were obtaining through a deal with Russia. We have quite a few examples in stock at Vienna Jewelry on Maple Avenue.
Eternity rings are available in prong, channel, bezel, and bar settings. When opting for a full eternity style (as opposed to half eternity, which features stones only on the crown of the ring), channel, bezel, and bar settings that render the stones flush are probably safest as prongs are prone to snagging, and pave stones might easily come loose. In choosing a wedding band to match an engagement ring, it’s advisable to match width and stone cuts; if you’re unsure consult wherever you buy jewelry in the DC area.
Popular for anniversaries as well as birthdays and Valentine’s Day, eternity rings are therefore available with many stones other than diamonds, and even in multi-colored styles. Browsing pawn shops in Vienna, VA, you’re sure to find one that precisely fits your needs and tastes.
