Typically I’m not an antique or vintage inspired kind of jewelry gal. It’s just not my taste. However, lately we have been adding some gorgeous vintage inspired engagement rings to the site and I find myself really liking them! I often see these words used interchangeably but, they do mean different things. From what I can tell, here is the difference between the words ‘antique’ and ‘vintage’. Antique jewelry would mean jewelry over 100 years old. Currently, vintage jewelry would be jewelry from about 1930 to about 1980. Either way, here are a few of my top antique and vintage inspired engagement rings from deBebians.com
I love the vintage flair of this engagement ring. The beautiful hand engraving transforms this ring back to the roaring 20’s! Can’t you see Daisy Fay Buchanan wearing this ring? I can!
To me, there is just something about a diamond being bezel set that can really take a ring back in time. This ring is special to me as it was originally manufactured for a client of mine. Notice the almost hidden row of diamonds pave set under the main halo? Love this touch!
Baguette diamonds remind me of vintage and antique jewelry. I love this ring and the how the halo features baguette diamonds framing a center emerald cut diamond. The milgrain detail is just the right way to finish off this vintage look. Just perfect!
