Choosing a wedding band is an important decision because it will become a symbol to remind you of the vows taken on your wedding day and will remain sentimental in value for years to come. Two of the popular styles of wedding bands are eternity bands and anniversary bands. So, what is the difference between an eternity band or an anniversary band?
An eternity band is a ring with faceted stones that are typically set edge to edge to completely circle the finger. Eternity bands never require you to adjust the way the ring sits on your finger throughout the day, because the entire band looks exactly the same all the way around the entire circumference.

of an eternity band with a shared prong setting in 14k white gold.
There are many styles of eternity bands that include prong set eternity bands, bezel set eternity bands, shared prong set eternity bands and channel set eternity bands. Eternity bands can be worn alone or next to your engagement ring. One thing to remember about eternity bands is that they usually cannot be resized. Because of the design of the band, it generally cannot be made smaller or larger if you lose or gain weight in the future.
Anniversary bands are another wedding band option to wear next to your solitaire engagement ring, and are offered in a variety of styles and designs. An anniversary “style” band is a band that consists of faceted stones that are set halfway down both sides of the shank. The stones can be prong set, channel set, or bezel set.

The anniversary “style” band can be worn as your wedding band right next to your solitaire. The anniversary band also refers to a ring that commemorates a special milestone in a marriage that is presented at a later date in the marriage. This type of anniversary band is generally worn on the right hand, or it can be added to the wedding set you already have. Anniversary bands can be resized if needed at a later date.
Eternity bands and anniversary bands are both beautiful wedding ring styles that will certainly compliment a solitaire and are just as stunning when worn alone. With the many styles and designs available in today’s marketplace, it can be a tough decision to make.
