i have a 4 ctw full eternity diamond band that is semi-bezel set. i love it. it looks great with my whole set, with just the plain band or all by itself. it is very comfortable and never snags on anything.

@Pinkypez: Hey lovely, FH and I are actually going through a jeweler to have it done. Turns out things are going wayyy better than planned because she quoted us something that’s 1.5k less than what Blue Nile is offering it for! I love your Adiamor ring! Think I have to check out that website now 😉

@Scintillante: I have an asscher center stone in a halo setting with a plain shank. And I am contemplating on the wedding band part. I love how yours look and that was what I wanted on mine. I wanted my ering and my wedding band to stand apart to be able to distinguish that it’s not just 1 ring.

@Scintillante: You have mentioned that your bezel is CZ in silver and you wear it to bed. How long have you had this ring? How often do you wear it? Is it durable? I am on the fence on my wedding band.

In my mind, an eternity ring is a type of engagement ring… that’s how I was brought up. I really do like eternity engagement rings! They have a modern, “easy breezy” vibe to them.
I also think they can sometimes look nice as a wedding band next to a solitare with an all-precious metal setting, but in general, I prefer precious metal wedding bands…I guess I really like the tradition that the diamond(s) are in the engagement ring.

love the look, but find the feeling of prongs/diamonds all around my fingers to be annoying 🙁

@drA: The prongs are usually not a good idea to have them on the shank. A friend of mine told me she doesn’t even like it on a half shank. For an eternity, ideally for comfort, channel or bezel would be the best. It won’t poke you at all.
@joya_aspera: Similar to you, I am leaning more towards and eternity even though you can’t see the sides and bottom but for what it represents. Eternal love.

@alyciassecret: So we have the same taste! 😉 Here is an update of the custom band, as it just came in last week! I adore it!!
@alyciassecret: That particular sterling silver bezel eternity band has withstood a good amount of wear. But I had another ring from the same store, that got tarnished pretty bad. I reacted to an oil I put on my nails, and the stains would not go away.
CZ can also cloud as water can insert itself between the particles. I simply do not wear sterling silver and cz on my hands anymore. I highly recomment palladium or platinum, instead, as they do not tarnish and do not need replating, like white gold.

@Scintillante: My ering is platinum and from everything that I’ve read from all differences between platinum, white gold and palladium. I chose platinum. I think it’s worth the money. There have been people who have bought palladium because it’s cheaper and it turned similar to what a silver will do with time. My wedding band will also be in platinum. I am torn between a 3mm etrenity round cut bezel setting wedding band in platinum or a 3mm half eternity princess cut channel wedding band in platinum. At least now I have narrowed it down to 2.

I have a couple cheap stainless steel cz eternities. They’re fun, and the unbroken sparkle’s so pretty, but if I were to get a band in a precious metal with diamonds or other gemstones, I’d get a 1/2 or 3/4 eternity depending on the setting. I have an ering I have to baby, and wouldn’t want another ring I had to do that with.
And just for fun, here’s one of the steel eternities. It’s plated with 14k rose gold and was like $15. The plain steel one is identical, just silver colored, and cost like $4 on ebay.

@Pinkypez: I love that band! I’ve admired the Blue Nile one a few too many times. I like the 3/4 option.

Eternity Bands look pretty…
BUT they don’t wear well
Diamonds on the bottom = Issues
I have as one of my WBands a very sparkly Channel Set 1/2 Eternity Band (14 KWGold, 0.55 CTW, 10 Round Brilliants, G Colour, I Clarity, Certified Canadian Diamonds)
And I love it, it presents up as being what looks like a Full Eterinity Band… but without the issues.
Hope this helps,

I absolutely love my eternity engagement ring (pave) and wedding band (u-prong)! Ive never had a problem with any stones falling out of the, but I am careful with them (e.g. I don’t have them on if I have my hands in liquids or will get them dirty, I am careful when I put hands in my pocket so I dont’ snag a prong, etc).
My e-ring is a .7 carat pave eternity ring (2mm) with diamonds on the prongs, and the wedding band is a 1.3 carat u-prong (2.6mm).
For some reason, I can’t upload any pictures, so check out my avatar!
