So you are planning on getting an eternity ring, but you want to know what is a sapphire eternity band. Are they worth it?
A sapphire eternity band is a ring that represents exactly what it says – eternity – love that lasts for all time. Sapphire eternity bands are often received as a gift to celebrate a marriage milestone, or other occasions such as celebrating the arrival of a newborn child, renewal of wedding vows, or even a major purchase, such as a home.
A sapphire eternity band is almost always a simple piece of jewelry that will seamlessly complement your existing wedding band and engagement ring, and will likely feature a set of sapphires or diamonds, or both combined. Many people like the look of a sapphire and diamond eternity band.
Best color sapphire eternity band?
The most traditional color for a sapphire eternity band is blue. Deep blue hues are a beautiful addition to your bridal ring set (engagement ring, wedding band). Blue sapphire goes particularly well with any shade of gold or silver and will complement any existing stones on your ring set.
Pink sapphires are growing in use and popularity for eternity bands. Pink sapphires also go well with any shade of gold or silver, and will also pop nicely if you choose to use rose gold.
What shape sapphire is best for an eternity band?
Either round or oval is best, followed by a square cut. Be sure to use the same cut shape throughout the entire sapphire eternity band to ensure a classic look.
What size sapphire is best for an eternity band?
Sapphire eternity bands are fine pieces of jewelry. It is best to stick to smaller sapphires to avoid distraction from the other rings of the marriage set. The last thing you want is for your sapphire eternity band to take the focus from your beautiful engagement ring centre stone.
Ideally, sapphires of 2mm to 6mm in size are best for an eternity band.
How expensive is a sapphire eternity band?
Given the sapphire used in an eternity band are much smaller than centerpiece stones, you can find these sapphires are less expensive than those larger stones used in engagement rings.
If you choose to add diamonds to your sapphire eternity band, the price will continue to rise.
Some people also like the whole band to be covered in stones, whereas others really only like the top part of the band covered with stones. This is entirely your call, and there is no right or wrong way. The benefits of only partially covered eternity bands are that it is easier to resize the ring if needed, and reduced costs in terms of having fewer stones covering the band.
