Types Of Eternity Rings
Full Eternity Rings
When the stones (diamonds or other gemstones) run all around the circumference of the ring band, it is called a full eternity ring. The number of stones in this setting is comparatively high and this can increase the cost.
Half Eternity Rings
The diamonds only run up to half the circumference of the ring in a half eternity ring. These rings don’t have gems on the lower half, making them comfortable to wear. If there are diamonds in the lower half, you may feel uncomfortable while closing your fingers.
