Vintage

Originating from the romantic era of days gone by, the vintage ring style is both timeless and unique. Today many couples consider an antique-styled engagement ring instead of the contemporary ring style to symbolize their unique and special love for one another. A bride-to-be planning to get married in her grandmother’s dress, or in a suit bought at a consignment boutique, may be particularly interested in a vintage engagement ring. Design characteristics include delicate diamonds surrounding a larger center stone creating a halo effect, or intricate metal or diamond detailing for a more ornate antique look.

Before purchasing an antique-styled engagement ring, it is important to find one that can withstand every day wear. A modern vintage style is a quality ring with an antique appearance, whereas a true antique ring will likely need to be cleaned to restore its near-original appearance. Professional cleaning can be done for a minimal charge. With routine maintenance, your vintage ring should last for many years to come.
