“True love is undying and eternal”.

The eternity band is the perfect representation to mark this powerful notion.

Eternity bands are designed to symbolise an individual’s ultimate commitment to a significant other. The stones encompassing the entire band have no beginning and no end signifying the idea of a complete love. Unquestionably, it probes on the idea of eternity – the riveting duration that the couple will be together.

It commemorates the idea of everlasting love transcending time and spatial boundaries. It proves to be a flawless emblem of a couple’s dedication to one another, no matter the era in which they venture on their pursuit of love.

The eternity band, also known as an infinity ring, worn on the hand, comprises of a precious metal band set with a continuous line of identically cut diamonds.

At Eclat by Oui, we provide access to a selection of the finest eternity diamond bands designed in Singapore.

We further pry into the significance of eternity bands to paint a thoughtful picture on the meaningful aspects it presents to its wearer and spectator.

1) The History behind Eternity Bands

The eternity band dates back to approximately 4,000 years ago, to Egyptian times. They were used merely as a token of both eternal, everlasting love and life. It was essential for Egyptian men to gift their wives rings to mark the appreciation of their love and commitment to each other.

During Egyptian times, it is known that these bands or rings adopted the shape of a snake devouring its own tail only to represent the idea of eternity, often referred to as the “ouroboros”. Today, these eternity diamond rings are derived to feature a continuous circle of precious gemstones, usually embellished with diamonds.

Another early example of the eternity diamond ring was usually in the form of an ordinary metal set with precious and brilliant stones either on the top half of the ring or encircling the entire circumference of the ring.

The eternity diamond rings offered at Eclat by Oui are fine-tuned to perfection by our designers who provide with the utmost care for our precious stones. Each ring receives the most meticulous level of craftsmanship and devotion.

2) Building the Romance

Anniversaries and special occasions call for meaningfully selected gifts to commemorate that event.

Gifting an eternity diamond band will be the best emblem and can act as a reminder of cherished moments in your relationship. Undeniably, it builds the romance for years to come. Some eternity diamond bands can also mark important birthdays or make intricate Valentine’s Day or Christmas presents.

With that said, eternity diamond bands are versatile as they can be given at many special times in a couple’s relationship, and not only on special occasions. It will be the best way to surprise your leading lady on the next special and momentous date.

In the spirit of commitment and everlasting love, an eternity diamond band is a physical emblem of your relationship. In this way, it immortalises a couple’s love for each other. At Eclat by Oui, we create lasting romantic and infinite moments with our eternity diamond bands designed in Singapore.

3) How to Wear an Eternity Band

Eternity diamond bands are an impeccable complement to your existing wedding and engagement rings. Alternatively, these eternity diamond bands can be a standalone piece for your wedding or engagement rings.

The engagement ring symbolises the period before the marriage while the wedding ring denotes the marriage itself. On the other hand, the eternity diamond bands represent the life-long journey of the married couple.

The eternity band should be placed on the ring finger of the left hand. If you already have a wedding or engagement ring, it can be worn beside it or on the same finger on the right hand.

At Eclat by Oui, we aim to shower you with feelings of warmth and love with our specially designed diamond bands in Singapore, as the symbolic reminders of the milestone achieved in a couple’s life.

It is also important to recognise that nowadays, diamond rings are slowly breaking away from the sole representation of relationships and marriage.
