From the time I can remember, I grew up in a home that felt like a museum. My father was a European antiques dealer and our house was full of antiques. He would always show me the fine detail in paintings, urns, vases and sterling silver. It’s for this reason, that I now appreciate the craftsmanship of antique engagement rings. You sometimes hear the saying, ‘they don’t make things like they used to anymore’. I felt that way about antique rings until I started designing antique style rings. I took the beauty of late 19th Century and early 1900’s and I put my own flare to it. The detail in all these antique pieces gave me the inspiration to design antique engagement rings. I have designed over 500 hand engraved antique style engagement rings, one more beautiful than the other. We are very lucky to have a master hand engraver that can make my dreams become a reality. Whatever I draw on a piece of paper or when I explain my vision to our master engraver, he can bring it to life. The combination of my design and our hand engraver is the reason why our pieces are so sought after. Our antique engagement rings are a combination of Edwardian, Art Deco, or Art Nouveau with today’s modern designs. Art Nouveau is another one of my favorite eras and the pieces that were manufactured in that time period are some my favorites I love the free-form lines and wavy patterns. The majority of our antique rings are also set with micro pave diamonds. The combination of micro pave and hand engraving makes a modern style on the true estate engagement rings. Below you will see some of our beautiful hand engraved antique engagement rings.
