Maybe glittering diamonds and precious gems of the fabulous fifties, semi precious gems of the 1960's, or designer jewelers of the 1970's. There are so many beautiful vintage engagement rings from past eras to choose from, and when you do choose, you are being ethical and conflict free.

Metals

There are many favorite metals to choose from, with everyone's favorite being platinum. There is not a better combination than platinum, white gold or palladium with gleaming european cut diamonds, or with a favorite precious gem such as a ruby, emerald, or sapphire.

Rose gold is also very popular these days, specifically with couples who love the Victorian engagement rings and 1940's vintage diamond rings . When you choose a art deco engagement ring , you are being ethical, green and conflict free!
