Antique and vintage engagement rings possess a beauty and level of craftsmanship that’s beyond compare. They have been adorning fingers for decades, and sometimes for more than a century, but we can only guess at these rings’ romantic pasts. That aura of mystery is one of the many things that makes vintage rings so enchanting.
Here are eight gorgeous antique engagement rings from the design eras of the past century:
The spectacular Victorian Tamarind Ring features six sparkling old mine cut cushion-shaped diamonds, nestled in a warm and lustrous yellow gold setting. The look is both unmistakably antique and completely timeless.
The feminine Edwardian-era Alaine Ring showcases a dazzling old European cut diamond in an octagonal frame, accented by two old European cut diamonds and six French cut, lab-created sapphires in a beautifully detailed setting.
The Edwardian Sinatra Ring boasts a striking round synthetic sapphire in a hexagonal white gold frame. Milgrained latticework and hand sculpted details complete this regal piece.
The platinum Tazanna Ring is from the Art Deco era and absolutely dazzles. A round diamond is center set in a milgrain bezel and is surrounded on all sides by accent diamonds, and two stunning rich blue sapphires, all finished with exquisite mil grain detailing.
An elongated Art Nouveau ring with romantic, swirling filigree features a ruby nestled into a bezel setting at its center. Diamond accents adorn the entire outer frame to a dazzling effect.
In this exquisite Victorian-era ring, a beautiful turquoise extends from a magnificent ribbon design accented by twenty-six sparkling rose cut diamond accents.
In the Art Deco Finial Ring a spectacular old European cut diamond sits regally in a milgrain-embellished platinum bezel setting, surrounded by a halo of dazzling diamond accents.
In the breathtaking Retro-era Artois Ring, a trio of old European cut diamonds sparkle from a white gold setting. Six single cut diamond accents enhance this distinctive nature-inspired design.
