Very Vintage Engagement Rings 

Very Vintage Engagement Rings. Ever since i can recall I've wanted my mother's engagement ring set. She can attest to me wearing it whenever she wasn't looking. (Which did result in a few close calls of almost dropping it down the sink) But I won't tell if you don't.

Vintage engagement rings are a great choice! They are not only an eco-friendly choice but they are beautiful. But don't be fooled vintage doesn't mean inexpensive. Some of these vintage engament rings will run as high and higher as a new ring. Despite this it is hard to replace the craftsmanship and the uniqueness of a vintage ring.  Which probably explains their popularity. 

I would definetly consider getting a vintage engagement ring. I've collected examples of all the reasons why. Vintage engagement rings can come in platinum, 18 kt and 14 kt white gold.

These rings are from Doyle and Doyle. My favorite is the one in the middle, or the right, or the left.  

 


edwardian engagement rings

These rings are from Sylvia's antique jewelry. I love the center one, and ever since the royal wedding there has been a surge in the popularity of saphire rings. That just might be another post.

These ones are from Erie Basin and even though I prefer white gold or platinum there is something charming about the gold one on the left.

Dover Jewelry has a beautiful assortment of art deco engagement rings, which are my all time fave.

I asked my Twitter followers for suggestions on where to find antique engagement rings and above is what they came up with. Thank you Twitter followers.

Anyone else know any good places?

My fiance gave me his grandmothers engagement ring when he proposed. Everyone fawns over it because it's so different from anything you can find now a days. Even jewelers get excited over it when I've passed it over to them while wedding ring shopping. I love it!
