One of our favorite things to read is the fashion section of the New York Times. I love reading about fashion week in NYC, Italy and France. When reading last weeks fashion section, Victoria Beckham really summed up her take on fashion, as well as ours on antique engagement rings when she said " the world is so confused right now, I just want to make my customer feel secure. In the end, the job of fashion should be to make a woman feel confident in her clothes, feel like a stronger version of herself so she can proactively think about something else." That's exactly how I feel when I put on my favorite Art Deco, or vintage, engagement ring. It seems to me that my antique rings always put a smile on my face. They were produced in different times when we were together. When I'm ready to face the day, it's like having an old friend with me every day! Antique engagement rings were produced in metals such as platinum and rose gold. They were completed with beautiful filigree and milgrain embellishments. I love estate engagement rings and love the history, and journey, behind each and every ring. So why not start your own history with Victorian and Edwardian rings? Here are four beautiful rings you will adore!
