Eternity rings are a symbol of everlasting love, represented in the shape of an endless circle. The intended purpose, whether it is to signify love, joy, friendship, an achievement or a memory, is held within the never-ending band. These rings are often given as gifts to commemorate special occasions or anniversaries.
