A diamond studded band is a timeless choice for a wedding band. If you are getting married soon and if you are looking for a more luxurious option, a diamond eternity band is a symbol of an everlasting commitment. It’s not only classic but it’s a showcase of style. Today, eternity bands are having a major moment. With new styles featuring thicker widths, coloured stones, rustic finishes, and so much more. In this post, we want to share the different eternity ring designs you can pattern your wedding eternity rings after if you will go the bespoke and customised route. From dainty designs to full diamond eternity rings, these will inspire you to opt for eternity rings instead of the typical wedding bands.
Eternity Ring Setting Types
Typically, eternity rings are either set with diamonds all the way around the band (full diamond eternity ring) or with diamonds halfway set across the visible half of the ring (half diamond eternity ring). If you are planning to purchase one or a set, knowing the different settings and figuring out what you might like before you go to your local Sydney jeweller ;will help you save time. It will help your jeweller to pick the best eternity rings that match your preference. Basically, there are four main setting types when it comes to eternity rings – claw set, channel set, pave set, and cut down set. Each set is designed to hold different diamond shapes and the metal used is usually made in platinum or 18 carats white and yellow gold.
Claw Set Eternity Ring
Perhaps the most traditional setting, the claw set eternity ring holds the diamonds securely in place on the ring using four prong claws that rise up from the band.
Channel Set Eternity Ring
This setting holds the diamonds into a metal channel (thus the name) where the stones flow in a continuous row. Which means there is no metal to separate them, making the stones look invisibly set.
Pave Set Eternity Ring
From the word ‘pavement’, the pave setting features diamonds set in clusters with encrusted small diamonds creating extra sparkle and brilliance. The diamonds look like cobblestones laid down close to each other.
Cut Down Eternity Ring Settings
A cut down setting features a slim eternity ring that makes the diamonds look bigger because there is no visible metal on either side of the stones.
