Diamond bands are the top choice for engagement and wedding bands. As well as their beauty, diamonds stand for the unbreakable bonds between a couple. The ring, an endless circle, represents enduring love. Diamond anniversary bands follow these symbols.
Some anniversary traditions, like silver for 25 years and gold for 50, have a long history. Other celebrations are ever-shifting. There’s no one way to honor your years together. It’s fine to gift a ring on a year designated for flowers. What’s important is expressing love.
Diamond anniversary bands have a shorter history than their engagement and wedding counterparts. There’s fewer guidelines in how they should look. They can be slim, broad, covered in diamonds or have a few select jewels. Some even have split shanks generous enough to fit a wedding band inside.
Popular designs for diamond anniversary bands include jewels set closely together. There may be 5 or 7 diamonds mounted in a row with common or individual prongs. Diamond eternity bands surround the entire shank with gemstones. Round brilliant cut diamonds are choice cuts, though princess and baguette cut diamonds are also sought after.
