Vintage Engagement Rings: Affordable and Timeless
Posted on July 17 2013
Many women love the look and story behind vintage engagement rings. There are many different eras that inspired the styling of antique engagement rings, such as Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and Edwardian. Some may wrongly think that these styles are old fashioned engagement rings, but I beg to differ. The design elements of these rings have not only prevailed over time, but so has the artistry and craftsmanship of these fine jewelry pieces.
I personally adore estate rings that were created in the 1920’s, 1930’s, and 1940’s because they often feature bold, geometric designs as well as colorful gemstones. Blue sapphires, specifically were often used as accent gemstones in these more old fashioned pieces. Colored gemstones add a unique contrast to the white diamonds and may have been set in repeating or dimensional patterns.
Not only are these pieces incredibly decorative, they are also a wonderful way to save money. A vintage engagement ring will typically cost less than a new engagement ring. We offer several beautiful antique rings in platinum or gold, but we can also create a new setting if you or someone you love has an heirloom diamond that they would like to have set. Our jewelry design team would simply need to know the specific dimensions of the heirloom diamond in order to create any setting to its specifications. If you have any questions about the benefits of purchasing an antique piece, please give us a call at your convenience. Be choosing to wear an estate piece, not only will you add to its story, but it will also become part of your history.
