They look similar, but there is a difference between the popular and romantic rings styles known as the eternity band and the anniversary band. The most fundamental difference is the design.
By definition, eternity means forever, always, infinity, never-ending, etc. Therefore, an eternity band is a never-ending circle of diamonds or diamonds and other gemstones. Diamond anniversary rings are typically a half band of diamonds, just covering the top portion. But, while either style is usually a channel set style, anniversary rings can also have a more geometric shape like a pyramid style.
Sometimes diamond anniversary rings take the place of the original wedding sets or they can be worn on the opposite ring finger. Eternity bands and anniversary rings can also be worn together with gold or silver wedding rings as long as they fit flush together. Because the traditional style is a band with in-set stones, they usually fit nicely with existing sets.
A gold wedding ring is accented very nicely with a gold anniversary or eternity band. But, whether it is worn along with or separately from wedding rings, the sentiment is pretty much the same. They symbolize a pledge of love, loyalty and devotion as well as a commemoration of time spent together. So for an anniversary or just a romantic occasion, an anniversary or an eternity band make great gift choices.

Some Father’s Day Gift Ideas:
So dad doesn’t golf, fish or watch NASCAR – you may be thinking you’re in trouble, but you’re not.
1. Think about a giving him a nice chronograph watch. Watches are great because you can tailor them to your dad’s specific needs. If your dad plays a lot of sports, go for a sports chronograph with second hand subdial. That way he can time the action and look good while he’s doing it. If your dad is more refined, try the Bulova Oxford. The leather strap and unique dial shape give this watch a sophisticated appeal that’s quite catching.
2. Dad has no style you lament. Don’t worry – Father’s Day is the perfect time to update your dad’s look AND give him a present. Your best bet is a simple ring, like the grey quartz cat’s eye ring or a masculine onyx number. It will go with everything and is both casual and dressy. It’s a win-win.
3. Even if your dad does like the above mentioned, dad-sanctioned activities, we’ve got the perfect thing to help him celebrate his hobbies all year long. Try the golf money clip bill fold or a racing ring. For more racing jewelry – both rings and pendants, check out our Racing Section.
Dads rock. Let yours know too.
