The price of your ring will be significantly swayed depending on the size and quality of the diamonds. Then of course there are the diamond 4 C’s.

The Clarity of the Diamond
This is measured by the absence of blemishes or imperfections in the stone. It is a particularly important feature for emerald cut engagement rings for example. Since the cut does not allow any space to hide blemishes that may appear in the diamond.

As you might have noticed the prices of the eternity band rings we are showcasing here can be radically different one from the other. This is particularly relevant because of the 4 c’s of each of the diamond bands. As well as of course the metal and the setting itself. Some stones and metal designs are more difficult and intricate than others. This is how you can have diamond band rings that range from around $3,000 all the way up to $59,000 and beyond. The larger the carat of the diamonds as well as the quality and other features the higher the price can go.

Diamond wedding rings
So now that we have a better understanding and overview of these diamond band rings let us get to the question of when. As we have said it is not always diamond wedding rings that use diamond eternity bands. These rings have become much more popular lately now to be worn as such. However this was not always the norm. The diamond band rings were generally for diamond anniversary rings. Further these were not always eternity style rings either. A majority of these bands tended to be half bands. Featuring diamonds set along only half of the ring’s length. The diamond wedding rings we have show cased above are of course the eternity ring style where the diamonds are set all around the ring. This style is quite a difficult setting to create but gives a dazzling look like no other.
All diamond anniversary rings
If you are looking for an all diamond band ring as your diamond anniversary ring then you are right in tradition. It is one of the more well known gifts to give during anniversaries to brides. The anniversary ring can be worn on top of or stacked with the wedding and engagement ring. Otherwise it can be worn on the other hand as well. Diamond anniversary rings have been popular for decades. It is one of the more traditional looks when it comes to diamond band rings.
When to buy an anniversary ring
The question of when to buy an anniversary ring is a funny one. Before it was quite cut and simple you get one as a present for a particularly auspicious anniversary. However we are seeing more and more diamond wedding ring sets that feature three rings. The engagement ring, a diamond wedding ring and then a third diamond band – the anniversary ring band. This one is meant to be worn on top of the engagement ring creating a stack around it. So it can be purchased all together or after your wedding. How long after? Well that really is up to you and when you want to add it on! It also does not have to be limited to one single ring either. This is the kind of gift that just keeps giving. The look these days is to stack the diamonds and to stack them high.
