Infinity Engagement Rings That Capture Your Enduring Love
Engagement is all about making a statement about your future — locking things down, sealing the deal, etc. etc. So what could make a better statement to your beloved than an infinity ring? If it fits her personal style, this engagement ring could be a choice she’ll treasure: infinitas, meaning unbounded or limitless, makes infinity engagement rings an apt symbol to represent an everlasting love.
But first: There’s a bit of confusion around the difference between infinity and eternity engagement rings. Although both are good symbolism for marriage, there is a difference between the two.
What are infinity engagement rings?
The eternity ring has diamonds all the way around the band, which symbolizes never-ending love and commitment. It’s sometimes given in addition to an engagement and wedding ring, usually years into a relationship or marriage, or to commemorate an important anniversary.
Infinity engagement rings incorporate the infinity symbol. Resembling a horizontal figure eight, the infinity symbol is a visual representation of a continuous line with no beginning or end, reflecting an unyielding love. (We have a guide to both eternity rings and infinity rings in case you want to know even more.)
Do all infinity rings look the same?
The infinity sign can be incorporated into an infinity ring in a number of different ways: Some infinity rings have infinity symbols at the top of the ring, where a center diamond would go. Others replicate the infinity symbol in the band, and some people refer to bands that even slightly mimic this shape (with a twisting pattern) as infinity rings.
At With Clarity, our infinity rings incorporate the infinity symbol into the band, though there’s variation in the arc of the curves and how much accent diamonds are used. The arcs of the infinity symbol can be larger and flowing, or smaller and tighter. Pave stones can extend all the way around the band, or only part-way. The arcs in the infinity symbol could be used to seamlessly form a halo. Some styles employ design elements like milgrain to go for a vintage look.
