• Vintage Engagement Rings Without a GIA Certificate
• Gemstone Origin and Treatments
• The Fifth C
Anyone in the vintage jewelry market buying an engagement ring will quickly learn the GIA's four Cs – color, cut, clarity, and carat – but antique diamonds are different. We have learned the four Cs which still apply to antique and vintage diamond rings, but you need to consider one extra “C” which is Character. These stones have extremely rich histories and showcase the values and qualities of a wide range of historical eras. A vintage ring may have a personal connection having been part of a family’s history. It could also have distant connections to royalty or historic events. It could even have a unique beautiful symbolism.
Choosing a GIA Certified Diamond
When shopping for a vintage engagement ring, you want to be sure the quality of the diamond you are considering matches your expectations. As one of the biggest decisions you will make in your life, you want to have full confidence in the diamond you select, therefore always look for a diamond that is accompanied by a GIA diamond report for all of your diamond and gemstone information.
