of eternity rings, we are mostly referring to the rings that are
exchanged by people who are close and that want a sign to signify
their friendship. These are rings that have sentimental value to the
two people that are exchanging them. This is not new. Rings have been
part of human interaction for as long as we can remember. They can be
made of anything from fine gold, to diamond, to steel and also other precious
stones. There is really no limit to the material that can be
used to create an eternity ring because its significance is all that
matters. There is also a general consensus that the deeper the
relationship, the more people seem to invest in the ring although
there are obvious exceptions to this rule. There are different
occasions in which eternity
rings are exchanged and we shall now examine them.
sentimental of these occasions is a wedding. There is perhaps no
other time that rings mean something more than at a wedding ceremony.
During a wedding, expensive rings are exchanged. It has been mostly
the custom of ring exchanges to have the man give a ring to a woman

and the woman exchange rings. In a wedding arrangement, the man
provides the ring to the woman and the woman's family buys the ring
for the groom. This is an acceptable way of exchanging eternity

This is the time that precedes a wedding. When a man and a woman
fall in love, the next step if they have made up their minds to get

During this occasion which is usually very memorable, the man
"proposes" to the woman usually in a gesture where he
kneels down and offers a ring to the woman of his love. This ring is
usually expensive although as we said, the intentions are what matters.

leaving high school and going off to different colleges. Girls are
more prone to do this than boys and more friendship eternity
rings are bought and exchanged by girls than by boys.
