The eternity band (also known as an infinity ring) symbolizes ever-lasting love and never-ending commitment through a continuous line of diamonds and/or gemstones around the circular band. Eternity rings are often given as a gift to commemorate a major milestone in a couple’s life such as a wedding anniversary, the birth of a child, or simply as a reminder of a cherished moment in their relationship.
Eternity Bands: Symbolizing the Promise of Future Celebrations
Though they may represent a special occasion of the past or present, eternity bands have also been known to symbolize the promise of future celebrations and achievements. When words can no longer describe the deep emotions for a soulmate, a symbolization of forever is an ultimate statement.
The concept of a circular band as a representation of devotion and eternal love between two soulmates dates back to the ancient Egyptians who utilized materials like braided reeds, carved bone, metal and gemstones to craft such rings. Decades later, these rings served as inspiration for the design of the diamond eternity band.
Marilyn Monroe’s Famous Saying “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”
It wasn’t until the mid-1940s when the De Beers Mining Company, encouraged the use of small diamonds in jewelry which ultimately led to the popularity of diamond engagement rings and eternity bands. A witty ad campaign was launched with the famous slogan, “A diamond is forever” which added a special sentiment to the purchase of a diamond ring.
The subtle elegance of a diamond eternity band became popular and ideal for most women when the much-adored Marilyn Monroe was gifted an utterly stunning diamond eternity band by Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio on their wedding day in 1954.
