Eternity vs Half Eternity Bands: What’s the Difference?

Eternity rings are a beautiful and timeless symbol of everlasting love and commitment. They are usually given to commemorate special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, or the birth of a child. More popularly nowadays, they also have become a facet to engagement rings!

Eternity rings come in various styles, including half eternity, 3/4 eternity, and full eternity. In this article, we will explore the difference between these three types of eternity rings and which one is best suited for you.

Half Eternity Rings

A half eternity ring features diamonds or gemstones set across the top half of the band. The other half of the band is usually plain, although it can be engraved or adorned with a subtle pattern. 


Half eternity rings are a popular choice for those who want a more understated ring or for those who have an active lifestyle. The half eternity rings give enough allowance for the ring to be resized and allow for more details like engravings or inlays. 

One con that comes with this design is that only the top half has diamonds, so the plain bottom band might be exposed when you move around your finger. 

3/4 Eternity Rings

A 3/4 eternity ring features diamonds or gemstones set across three-quarters of the band. The remaining quarter of the band is usually plain. The number of stones and their cut on a 3/4 eternity ring can vary depending on the size of the ring.

3/4 eternity rings are a great option for those who want a balance between a full eternity ring and a half eternity ring. They offer more coverage than a half eternity ring, so the band won’t get exposed when you move around your hands, and are also practical for everyday wear.

Full Eternity Rings

A full eternity ring features diamonds or gemstones set around the entire band. The carat size of stones is usually consistent throughout the band.

Full eternity rings are the ultimate symbol of love and commitment. They offer maximum coverage and sparkle, and are sure to catch the eye of anyone who sees them. However, they tend to be more expensive because there are more diamonds. They also cannot be resized too.

The price is also determined by the amount of gemstones present, which is determined through your ring size. As such, it's better to meet with your jeweler to have your ring accurately measured to help you decide the size suited for you and your lifestyle. 

In conclusion, eternity rings come in various styles to suit different tastes and lifestyles. Half eternity rings are understated and practical, 3/4 eternity rings offer a balance between coverage and practicality, and full eternity rings are the ultimate symbol of love and commitment. 

Whatever your preference may be, an eternity ring is sure to be a cherished and timeless addition to your jewelry collection.
