What Makes a Vintage Engagement Ring or Antique Ring Unique?

Though the terms “antique” and “vintage” are used interchangeably when describing engagement rings, the two are different. While they both are considered to be old-fashioned rings, vintage engagement rings are old-fashioned rings crafted in any era such as the Edwardian or Art Deco eras. Antique engagement rings are jewelry over 100 years old.

Vintage engagement rings are unique since they capture the spirit of the eras in which they were crafted. As an example, let’s look at rings from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Victorian rings exude the prosperity of that era through their large center stones while Edwardian rings showcase the lacy and filigree designs of that period.

The same can be said about Art Deco engagement rings. The Art Deco era is known for the design and architectural movement. A time when bold art was created and elaborately designed buildings like New York’s Chrysler Building were constructed. The rings handmade in this era translate to bold geometric shapes, bright colors and straight lines.
