Getting engaged can be one of the high points in a person's life. Are you ready to pop the question to your loved one? Or are you the loved one trying to decide what type of engagement ring might be your choice? Consider a vintage engagement ring.
Many women have by now learned my little secret - there is nothing like vintage jewelry for quality and sentimentality. The main reasons that I love it so much is because a piece of vintage jewelry is individual. A vintage engagement ring might have more personality, appeal and charm for your sweetheart, so be sure to consider one before you decide.
As an added plus, vintage rings tend to be lest costly than new engagement rings. And also, vintage rings are often intricately crafted for the same price as a much simpler modern design.
An engagement ring that's over 50 years old is considered vintage. If an engagement ring has been around for less than 50 years, it's called an estate ring. Rings made during the 1950s tend to have more attractive designs. However, some engagement rings look vintage without actually being old. These are rings that are made to look antique. If you're not sure whether or not a ring is vintage, you should consult with a trusted jeweler.
If the ring is over 100 years old, it is considered an antique ring and often can be a real collector's piece. This type of ring might be something that will end up being passed down from generation to generation and will become a family heirloom.
I've found a website that features diamond engagement rings from the Victorian era right through to today's styles. Be sure to have a look at the vintage designs from Weston Fine Jewelry. Perhaps one of their designs will be the perfect choice for you!
