I was driving with my husband and two children to the beach a few weeks ago and noticed a row of beautiful old colonial houses. Then a beautiful old Cadillac passed us by, and I thought, "my goodness, they just don't make houses or cars like that anymore!" It's the same with vintage engagement rings , they just don't make engagement rings like they used to. Today, engagement rings are made using rubber molds, or by computer simulation. Decades ago during the Victorian, Art Deco or Edwardian eras, master jewelers actually sat behind a bench for weeks on end working on their future masterpieces. These pieces had the stunning handcrafted bold designs of the Art Deco era, beautiful rose gold settings from the Victorian era, and gorgeous milgrain emebllishments from the Edwardian era. Here are five beautiful vintage engagement rings that you will love!
