Welcome to the ultimate guide to men’s eternity rings. We have hand-picked 10 of our favourite men’s eternity rings.
An eternity ring is traditionally given as a gift, usually on an anniversary. This can be a wedding anniversary, or simply an anniversary of being together. The eternity ring is a symbol of everlasting love and is a celebration of the time you have spent together with your partner.
Eternity rings were traditionally given to women by their partner. Thankfully, times are changing and there is an increasing trend towards eternity rings for men. After all, why should the man have to be left out?
The Origins of the Eternity Ring
The beginnings of the Eternity Ring began in Ancient Egypt.
In Ancient Egyptian culture, the circle was seen as a powerful symbol which meant eternity. Likewise, marriage was seen as everlasting, a bond that was so strong that it would last into the afterlife.
Naturally then, the ring was seen as the perfect way to symbolise love between two people. The eternal circle is represented as a ring and here was born the very notion of the wedding ring.
Jewellery was an important part of Egyptian culture. Soon after the rise of the wedding ring, eternity rings came to represent the everlasting and eternal love between couples. The essence of the Eternity ring stands true today.
Eternity rings can be given for many different reasons but most often as an anniversary gift (whether that be for a wedding anniversary or to mark the anniversary of being together as a couple). Eternity rings can also be given as a celebratory gift to mark a very special occasion so as the birth of a child, or a special birthday. Unlike the wedding ring, there are no exact rules for the Eternity ring. It is more about what you choose as a couple.
Traditionally, eternity rings would be a ring set with a line of identical diamonds, or gemstones. These are still popular for women, but men’s eternity rings tend to span a whole range of styles. While eternity rings were traditionally given by men to women, there is a marked trend towards men also wearing eternity rings. Afterall, why would you men want to miss out!
Which Finger Should You Wear an Eternity Ring On?
Traditionally, eternity rings are worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. But this tradition was born from women’s fashion and trends. Because women’s rings tend to be thinner, the engagement, wedding, and eternity ring, can be stacked together. This is slightly different for men who tend to have wider rings – not so great for stacking together.
Men may wear their eternity ring on the traditional ring finger if that is what they want – or on any other finger. The complication comes if you are a man already wearing a wedding ring. The question is do you want to replace the wedding ring with the eternity ring? If not, it probably makes more sense to wear your eternity ring on a different finger, or thumb!
Which finger you wear your men’s eternity ring on is completely up to you. Just remember that you will need to decide before you order your ring as you will need to know the ring size for the finger you want to wear the ring on!
Men Wearing Eternity Rings
There is an upward trend in men wearing eternity rings, as with other pieces of jewellery. Eternity rings are a wonderful and meaningful way to mark and celebrate your time together as a couple – so why should men miss out on that! They are the perfect gift to give on an anniversary (whether for a wedding anniversary, or an anniversary of being together as a couple).
If you lead an active lifestyle, whether for work or leisure, you need an eternity ring that is built to last. Rings made from tungsten carbide and rings made from titanium will guarantee strength, durability and give you extreme scratch resistance. Just what you need from your men’s eternity ring.
Tungsten and titanium rings for men also come in a huge array of styles and in different colours. Whether you are looking for something traditional, or contemporary, there is a ring out there for you.
What to Look for When Choosing Your Men's Eternity Ring
The most important to thing to remember when choosing your men’s eternity ring is that there are no rules. You are not obliged to choose a certain type of ring, or a ring made of a particular metal, or in a specific colour.
You are the boss; you get to choose. Whether you are choosing for yourself, or you are buying your man an eternity ring as a gift, go with the eternity ring that you love.

Men’s eternity rings are available in a wide range of metals. Traditional choices would include metals such as gold, silver, and platinum. These are sound choices that have been popular for years.
Less expensive and much stronger, and more durable are tungsten carbide and titanium. These are metals that are known for their strength and durability. Tungsten is particularly good as it is also very resistant to scratches. The main benefit of titanium is that it is extremely lightweight. Both tungsten and titanium are non-corrosive although you need to keep tungsten rings away from chlorine. Titanium rings are fine with chlorine as well as sea water.
The width of a men’s eternity ring tends to be either 6mm or 8mm. Although this is purely a matter of personal preference, generally speaking, men with larger hands and fingers may be better suited for an 8mm ring, while men with thinner fingers and smaller hands, may be better suited to a 6mm ring.
There are men’s eternity rings out there that will suit every budget. Of course, the precious metals such as gold, white gold, silver, and platinum, tend to be more expensive. Metals such as tungsten carbide and titanium are just as good in terms of quality but since they are not seen as a precious metal, they are substantially less expensive.
