Antique and vintage engagement rings bring something old and something new. Between Anna Karenina, Great Gatsby and of course the highly addictive Downton Abbey, bridal fashion and jewelry are taking on more of a vintage feel.
Gowns are becoming more embellished. Diamond brooches, tiara’s and vintage hairpins are borrowed from Grandma. Earring and necklace sets are back in style for the big day.
If you lean to the romantic side of engagement rings, this is definitely your time to shine. It’s never been easier to find the perfect ring with so many beautiful vintage styled options.
Three designers that really get this look right?
- Tacori, in particular the Blooming Beauties and the Dantela collections.
- Parade Design offers delicate pieces with feminine details and lacelike designs. We especially love their swooping and graceful curves. Take a peek at our in store Parade pieces here.
- Beverley K is another designer that for a long time has featured vintage designs. They offer styles with more of an Art Deco look, geometric designs and colored stones. Anything you love on their website? We can get it for you.
And of course there is our own selection of premium vintage rings. All completely refurbished. You’ll see “Estate Jewelry Item” in the description. No one else will have it, and you save up to 2/3 of the appraised value!
