The Vintage Engagement Ring

Vintage Engagement Rings
View our vintage engagement rings here.

Everyone has their own style. Some prefer the new and modern while others prefer the old and antique. If you fall into the latter category then a vintage engagement ring may appeal to you. This article will show you how an old ring can become your beautiful new ring.

A vintage engagement ring is one that doesn’t look new or modern. It can be an authentic antique ring or one that was designed to look old. You have to be knowledgeable about jewelry when you’re looking for a vintage engagement ring. Otherwise, it would be easy for an unscrupulous seller to take advantage of the situation. You could be tricked into paying hundreds of dollars for a fake antique or otherwise worthless piece of jewelry.

A vintage engagement ring can be a precious heirloom passed down for generations. An heirloom ring would have a sentimental value not offered by a new, modern ring. A vintage engagement ring can also be more unique than a modern ring. A genuine antique ring tells a story and comes with a history attached.

How old is a vintage engagement ring?

  • Rings designed in the early Victorian era seem to be the most popular for those seeking a vintage engagement ring. This time period existed between the years 1837 to 1901. This was when diamonds gained popularity as engagement ring stones. Most of the rings were made from yellow gold or silver. Also, some engagement rings from this period didn’t use diamonds at all, opting for stones such as sapphires or rubies. A vintage engagement ring from this era is a rare find.
  • The Edwardian era came next. This period existed between the years of 1901 to 1920. Because of advances in jewelry, platinum replaced gold as the metal of choice. Many of the rings used stones such as sapphire as the main focus and diamonds for side-stones.
  • Rings from the Art Deco era are also considered vintage. The Art Deco period lasted from around 1920 to 1930. A vintage engagement ring from this era is likely to be oddly shaped and covered with diamonds. You’ll recognize a vintage engagement ring from this period by its usually geometric, boxy look. The rings were often made of platinum and featured colorful stones in addition to diamonds.

Let us create your vintage engagement ring

Remember, a ring doesn’t have to be old to look like a vintage engagement ring. We can recreate some of the patterns of vintage engagement rings with modern settings and diamonds. In fact, producing a new vintage ring would probably be less expensive than a genuine antique. If you design a new “vintage” ring, then you know the materials are sturdier than those of the past. If you send us a picture or drawing of the design you want, we will produce a replica in CAD and send you a 3D model. When the design is approved, our jewelers will create your personal vintage engagement ring.
