The anniversary ring is the traditional symbol of a couple's ongoing love and commitment to each other.
Traditionally, an anniversary ring, also known as an eternity ring, is made with diamonds and is given on the first wedding anniversary.
Anniversary rings are normally worn on the same finger as the engagement and wedding ring, on the top side of the engagement ring, as the ring closest to the knuckle.
Diamond anniversary rings are by far the most popular and most ladies choose diamond anniversary bands in a matching style to their wedding ring, though ring designs with prong set diamonds are also very popular.
The reason that many ladies prefer to have a their eternity band match their wedding ring is that they prefer the aesthetic look of a symetrical design around the engagement ring. Matching styles also help to make the three rings look like a complete set of rings that were designed to be worn together.
Some ladies however prefer to distinguish between each of the three rings with the anniversary band featuring diamonds larger than their wedding ring, though diamonds that are smaller than those in their engagement ring.
For the ladies that chose a plain gold band without diamonds for their wedding ring, choosing a diamond eternity band is quite popular.
When choosing your anniversary ring it is important to make the ring look like it was made to be worn with your engagement and wedding rings. That doesn't mean that the rings need to match exactly in their design, though it is a good idea to have all of the rings made in the same metal. So if you have white gold wedding and engagement rings, you would normally choose a white gold eternity band.
If you're not keen on wearing three rings on the one finger, that's okay, it's also now commonly accepted for ladies to wear their anniversary band on their right hand, separately from their engagement and wedding ring. Some ladies like this option because it allows them to choose a completely unique ring design which is not bound by the design of her other rings. This type of anniversary ring can feature diamonds, or it can feature other gemstones such as sapphires, rubies or aquamarines.
Ultimately it's a matter of personal preference as to the design of your anniversary ring and you should focus on choosing a design that appeals to you.
There are two anniversary gift lists that are commonly used by couples when choosing their anniversary gifts.
