Why Buy a Vintage Engagement Ring


Vintage engagement rings have a rich history all their own, having been passed through different generations, relationships, and love stories. Each ring was originally designed and expertly handmade by artisans of their time, from the bold, geometric designs of the Art Deco era to the gentle, precise designs of the Edwardian era using European or mine cut diamonds to the delicate, romantic designs of the Victorian era using precious gemstones set in rose gold.




•  Choose Your Era 

There are so many wonderful eras to choose from. Do you love the beauty of Art Deco or Edwardian? If you love rose gold, Victorian might be the right choice for you. Art Deco engagement rings showcase bold promises and long-lasting commitments in their stark, geometric patterns and dramatic details. The Art Deco period began in 1925 at the World’s Fair in Paris, France, and lasted through 1935.



•  Conflict Free and Eco Friendly

Conflict diamonds and blood diamonds are a serious issue in the world today. That’s why we purchase all our new diamonds only from sellers who participate in the Kimberley Certification Process, which was established in 2003 to prevent diamond sales from financing the conflicts in Africa. Antique and vintage diamonds should be  original to their rings and are not associated with modern conflicts, and we will provide our customers with accurate information regarding all diamonds and diamond purchases. Vintage engagement rings are completely eco-friendly, there is no digging of the earths surface.  


•  Master Artisans

The Master Jewelers of yesteryear did not have modern technology. Years ago master jewelers sat behind benches and worked for weeks on end creating one of a kind masterpieces. Unfortunately today, jewelry is either casted or computer simulated and unfortunately you cannot find the beautiful artistry of hand crafted milgrain and filigree engravings. 


 •  Unique Engagement Rings

You're unique so you want your engagement ring to be as unique as you are. Vintage engagement rings are the perfect choice, with beautiful mine cut diamonds or semi precious gems such as aquamarines or garnets. Keep a keen eye on antique jewelry trends, or why not choose your birthstone. 


•  Hollywood Loves Vintage

Art Deco and Vintage jewelry has never been the same since the great Barbra Streisand started wearing it in the 1960's. Hollywood has continued this tradition with beautiful antique cocktail rings and beautiful vintage dinner rings.
