I love love love eternity bands. And ever since I got engaged, I have been thinking that is what I want for my wedding band. However, I have been reading that eternity bands are more common as anniversary rings that are gifted after certain years of marriage. Any opinions on this? We are thinking about a 2 carat eternity band.

I have a chevron eternity band as my wedding ring. I didn’t think twice about having it be my wedding band. I think it’s around 1 ct ttw.

I also want a diamond band as an upgrade for my plain platinum band. I don’t get to wear my engagement ring at work though.
But instead of an eternity band, I want a five or 9 stone band for bigger bling. I feel guilty about it, but I’m really dreaming of getting one right now.

hannabride : I was considering an eternity ring for my wedding band but decided to go with a plain band instead and get the eternity band for my anniversary. One reason is because I wanted traditional looking rings such as a solitaire engagement ring, plain wedding band, and eternity anniversary band. The other reason is because I have sentimental attachment to the engagement and wedding rings but not so much for any other rings that I might buy or be gifted in future. So I wanted something more durable as I wanted to be able to wear both these rings at all times and not have to worry about stones falling out, etc or not being able to resize my ring multiple times (I read that certain settings with stones can cause issues, especially eternity styles).

I have a 2ctw shared prong eternity in pt. I love the look of a plain solitaire plus eternity band.
Depending on the setting style (micro pavé vs single prong vs French pavé vs shared prong etc) and size I’d say from my experience they can be pretty sturdy. I wear my set 24/7 and I mean it. This includes the mean and bad gym (weightlifting), snowboarding and. diving. I literally never take my rings off. I ordered the band in 5.5 but it came slightly bigger which is perfect for me. I don’t worry about sizing because it’s that one tad bigger already and I am not planning on gaining weight (the ring should keep me motivated to stay in weight 😉) and so far the stones don’t budge eventhough they go weightlifting regularly. It’s insured and fixable for case of emergency.
But till today I sometimes look jealously at plain bands. Because the are so plain and simple and classic and scream married.
But why shouldn’t you have an eternity band as a wedding band?

hannabride : I will definitely have an eternity band or partial for my wedding band! I love how elegant they look and that they stand alone too, should I choose not to wear my engagement ring at times. I’ll likely have a plain band for specific occasions as well (traveling, gym, etc.), but I think eternity bands as wedding bands are beautiful!

I have a bead set with milgrain edging. The wedding band has 16 diamonds, engagement ring has 18 and my newest one is a 3/4 eternity pave anniversary band with 20 diamonds (20th anniversary) My jeweler recommended not going all the way around with the anniversary band, less damage especially if you hit your hand down hard or grabbing. It’s a lot of sparkle and bling but I love it!

If you love it go for it but I would be worried about not being able to re-size it in the future if you need to, plus who really sees the bottom stones but you lol I’d splurge for a chunky 5-7 stone anniversary band like pp said but that’s just my opinion so take it with a grain of salt 🙂
(ps I inherited a chunky 5 stone and love wearing it on its own sometimes but also love my plain band and having the option to wear them together or apart)

Fiance chose a low carat weight and size for our engagement ring (3/8 ct tw), although still perfect, made me 100% on getting all the carat that should have been on my engagement ring on my future eternity diamond wedding ring! I say go for that 2 ct eternity band!
