When do you give an eternity ring?

The eternity ring. A symbol of everlasting love. Worn on the same finger as the engagement and wedding rings. Is this all new to you?

While most people know about engagement and wedding rings, many wouldn't have a clue when to give their other half an eternity ring (so, if you're reading this, you're already ahead of the pack!). To make it more difficult, there are no firm 'rules' about when they're given. Let's take a look at the most popular occasions.

  1. Your first wedding anniversary. The most common (but certainly not the only) choice is to give an eternity ring when you celebrate your first year of marriage.
     
  2. The arrival of your first child together. Another popular choice is to give an eternity ring when your first child together arrives.
     
  3. A later wedding anniversary. While the first wedding anniversary is a common choice, some people choose to give an eternity ring after 5 or 10 years of marriage.
     
  4. Your wedding day. Some couples choose to get an eternity ring at the same time as their wedding bands, to complete the set of rings.
     
  5. A significant life event. Of course, you can get creative and choose to give an eternity ring at another significant event in your lives, such as buying your first house, or going on a special holiday. Choosing an event that is unique to your relationship will mean your eternity ring reminds you not only of your everlasting love, but also of fond memories in your lives together.
