How to Wear an Eternity Ring?

February 2nd, 2022

Eternity rings represent timelessness with no beginning or end. This ring is a perfect symbol for enduring love and a meaningful gift on your anniversary or birthday from a loved one.

Eternity rings are precious metal bands with a continuous line of gemstones, often diamonds, in the middle. They’re a beautiful way to say, “I love you” and an alternative to upgrading your engagement ring.

Types of Eternity Rings

There are two main types of eternity rings, half eternity rings and full eternity rings. Half eternity rings have gemstones in half of the band, while full eternity rings feature gemstones that wrap all the way around.

Half eternity rings are easier to resize and cost less than full eternity rings. While you can choose from a variety of gemstones for your ring, diamond eternity rings are the most popular.

There are even men’s eternity ring designs. These bands are typically thicker than the rings designed for women, and some feature asymmetrical metal bands. They are available with and without gemstones.

How to Wear Your Eternity Ring

Although it’s traditionally worn stacked with your engagement and wedding rings, there’s no wrong way to wear your eternity ring. The most common way to wear your eternity band is on top of your other rings.

Traditionally, the ring finger on your left hand holds your wedding band at the base of the finger closest to your heart, followed by your engagement ring, with your eternity ring on top.

If your hands are small, the stacked rings may look bulky or feel uncomfortable, so you may choose to wear your eternity ring on the ring finger of your right hand. It also helps you have a symmetrical appearance.


You may want to wear your eternity ring on your other hand if the metal, gemstone, or overall design of your eternity ring clashes with your other bands.

You can even switch up how you style your eternity ring for different occasions. Try wearing your eternity ring between your wedding band and engagement ring on your ring finger to better balance the design or gemstones.

Placing your eternity ring on your pointer finger is another great way to style it. This allows your eternity ring to remain close to your other rings while showcasing its uniqueness. There are endless combinations and ways to wear your eternity ring, so be creative and figure out what you love.
