Vintage Engagement Rings

What are vintage engagement rings?

Vintage engagement rings are rings that are at least 20 years old and are typically from a period between the 1910s to the 1980s. These rings have a unique aesthetic and charm that is often difficult to replicate in modern jewellery. Vintage engagement rings come in a variety of styles, including Art Deco, Edwardian, Victorian, and Retro. They often feature intricate detailing, filigree work, and colourful gemstones. Vintage engagement rings are highly sought after because of their historical significance, timeless design, and sentimental value. They are a perfect choice for those who appreciate the unique and timeless qualities of vintage jewellery.

What is the history of vintage engagement rings?

The fascinating historical journey of vintage engagement rings is their history. These rings are usually classed as having been made in the late 19th and mid-20th centuries because of their classic appeal. Sentiment and symbolism dominated Victorian design, resulting in elaborate patterns with floral and heart-shaped motifs. The 1920s and 1930s Art Deco era popularised geometric designs and vivid colours. In addition to diamonds, precious jewels including sapphires, emeralds, and rubies are frequently used in vintage rings. The distinctive designs and craftsmanship of each era convey a tale of love and dedication, turning vintage engagement rings into priceless keepsakes with lengthy backstories.

Can I find matching wedding bands for vintage engagement rings?

Yes, it is possible to find matching wedding bands for vintage engagement rings. While vintage engagement rings may have unique shapes or designs that can make it challenging to find an exact match, there are many different styles of wedding bands that can complement and enhance the beauty of a vintage ring. You may want to consider custom-designed wedding bands that can be made to perfectly fit and match the engagement ring. It is also important to ensure that the metal type and colour match between the wedding band and the engagement ring, and to choose a band that complements the style and era of the vintage ring. A Lily Arkwright consultant can help guide you through the process of selecting a matching wedding band for your vintage engagement ring.
