Everlasting is an enchantment which can be found as a 25% drop from evokers alternatively to the totem of undying. It lets your tools/armor parts get to 1 durability entering a "broken" state, just like elytra: when the item is about to break it stops working (a pickaxe would stop breaking stone easily and an armor part wouldn't protect you anymore), in order to keep your most valuable tools and not losing them. Also the breakage should be visible in the item and on the model, that would be super cool.
The durability system wouldn't be broken: you normally keep an eye on your most valuable items' durability, so this would take the stress off your shoulders.
(Idea from comment) The enchantment could have more levels: Everlasting I has 50% chance to be removed from the item when it gets to durability 1, Everlasting II has 25% chance and Everlasting III has 12.5%.
