Eight Amazing Antique Wedding Rings

Some believe that a wedding ring is the single most important piece of jewelry you will ever own or wear. There’s good reason for that belief! When we accept and wear a wedding ring, we are making a promise to someone that we love. It’s not like putting on a pair of shoes in the morning. We highly suggest that you consider choosing an antique wedding ring!
 

These rings have been around for decades, and they have loyally served as the symbol of loving unions. Antique rings are infused with history and character, and they would make a wonderful addition to an engagement ring.

These rings are lovely. I would hate to have to choose, but I would have to say that the one that stands out to me is the Coronado ring. Second, wouldbe the Tricia ring and third, would be the Lilah ring. Gorgeous! <|;-)

So nice to look at. Tell us the money and/or where to buy. Pearl, I’m 78 but can still enjoy. It is never too late.

The Luba Ring is my choice.

I really like the Luba ring but prefer white gold instead.


Kristine Says:

Love the Luba ring! I had one nearly the same for my previous marriage :p


katie Says:
October 6th, 2013 at 7:50 am

i’d choose the tricia


E. Says:

David B Johnson Says:

I love the Tricia because of it’s beauty and simplicity, who can deny fire and ice!


wendy Says:
October 9th, 2013 at 3:42 pm

I love the vivica


Patricia F Says:
October 15th, 2013 at 4:01 am

It would have to be the “Tricia ring” since it has my name and is gorgeous to boot.

The First one. It looks like my grandmothers, that inherated


Annie Says:
October 23rd, 2013 at 5:27 pm

my #1 choice would be LUBA, absolutely gorgeous 2# choice would be Coronado.

I actually own the calipet in yellow gold–my grandmother’s from 1926! The diamonds glitter stunningly!


divadd Says:
October 26th, 2013 at 9:21 am

It’s the luba ring for me. It is the only band I find attractive.


Candace Says:
October 26th, 2013 at 1:10 pm

LUBA, LUBA, LUBA!! Would make these old hands look young again!


Claire T Says:
October 30th, 2013 at 7:34 am

I have the Calipet. It is a beautiful ring and very comfortable


Karen Says:
October 31st, 2013 at 8:26 am

They are very nice, however, the one made by a local jeweler that I have is, in my opinion, prettier than any of these.


Karen Says:
October 31st, 2013 at 8:28 am

These are very nice, however, the one that I got from a local jeweler who hand made it, is far more beautiful – in my opinion. It is white and rose gold filigree with tiny diamonds. It almost looks like lacework.


Chris Says:

I had an old, mine cut diamond set with 3 stones. Incredibly well made, around each stone was a flush set prong, above each prong similar to a small gold bead. Then engraved around each was a star pattern. It was exquisite (to me) and stolen along with all my other jewelry. About 20 years ago, this same style hit the stores, but none matched the artistry of my ring. They were poorly made, and the bands didn’t have a nice curve to them, just flat and ugly. I’d sure like to have that back–mine cut or not.


Ione Couch Says:

I like the Marietta the best. The rest of them look too common – like a million others. My engagement ring is one of a kind but not the two wedding bands that I have. Still, the set is one of a kind.


Jane Says:
November 9th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

Love Eva. Sold antiques for years, Eva is perfect. The mixture of metals says it all.


DIANE Says:

I want them all please. One for every finger. I Love the bling.


Bettie Says:
November 11th, 2013 at 8:51 pm

I don’t really like any of them. My mother had the most beautiful wedding set I have ever seen. The engagement ring was heart shaped with several small diamonds covering it and the wedding band fit across the top of the heart with 5 or 6 diamonds on it. I have never seen another one like it and I guess I never will.


Keisha Says:
November 14th, 2013 at 11:41 am

I have The Calipet Ring and it’s soldered together with a wide band with a one carat diamond surrounded by twelve smaller similar set diamonds. The set was passed down from my husbands great-great grandmother and I had new prongs,soldered together and had the bands joined,thickened and widened. It isn’t my wedding ring but is even more precious than my actual wedding set because it is a family heirloom.


Patty Says:
November 14th, 2013 at 12:20 pm

I would have loved to receive any of these rings when I got married. Unfortunately, my fiance (now my ex-husband) gave me his first fiancee’s engagement ring and wedding band. :(


Joyce Says:

My 25th anniversary is a little over a year away, I’ll have to hint to my honey that the Luba would make a great vow renewal ring!


Debbie Says:
November 20th, 2013 at 12:15 pm

Currently in the jewelry business, many of these styles are being sold today! Just like the “oldies” music, your first love and jewelry designs…they will continue to live on!


Jenn S. Says:
November 26th, 2013 at 6:02 am

My ring is very similar to the Tricia ring… rubies and diamonds. It was my grandmother’s ring and rubies are my birthstone. Has a lot of sentimental value for both myself and my husband.


celeste Says:

I love the lilah ring and the vivica ring’s they are very beautiful and boy if I had the money I would buy my self one of each.


Eileen Says:

love the calipet. I have one with diamonds and emeralds, which was my mother’s, that I wear all the time.

The lilah ring, is my very favorite.


Carol Says:

What beautiful rings! I have a variation of the Coronado with 5 diamonds and I love it!


sue Says:

The Marietta ring is the only one that looks even remotely antique. The rest do not look any older than the ’70′s.


Anne Says:
December 29th, 2013 at 11:40 am

My Dad give my Mom an engagement ring, similar to the Lilah. Each of these three diamonds he called “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”. They were so much in love !!!


Patricia Says:
December 30th, 2013 at 11:52 am

My mom had a beautiful pink gold wedding set that my dad unfortunately insisted she be buried with. It was purchased sometime around 1941.
It was stunning and I have not ever seen anything like it ever!
So sad. It would have been a wonderful heirloom for her daughters, grand daughters and great granddaughters to have seen.


Patti Says:
December 30th, 2013 at 5:32 pm

The Tricia ring looks like my mothers ring i wear on my Right hand for the past 27 years, wow.


Katt Says:
December 31st, 2013 at 6:35 am

The Marietta is the one for me. I have a lovely antique wedding set, and wouldn’t trade it for ANY new set!!


marietta Says:
December 31st, 2013 at 6:05 pm

Marietta is my real name. To bury someone wearing a piece of jewelry that could be handed down as a legacy to daughters and granddaughters is so very sad. What a shame!


Barbara Says:

I am currently wearing a pressed yellow gold wide band about 100 years old that I bought for my mother as a change from her platinum and diamond eternity ring–it was to wear with sport clothing. I wear it on my right hand and it never fails to evoke wildly positive comments!


Lora B. Says:
January 1st, 2014 at 12:19 pm

Marietta! Looks just like my grandmother’s wedding ring from 1937…and had both my grandparents initials engraved on the inside and the date of their marriage.


Diane Says:
January 2nd, 2014 at 5:53 am

I am wearing my mother’s Calipet band right now. Purchased circa 1955. I love it!!!


Joyce Says:
January 7th, 2014 at 5:32 am

Any of these would make me happy and will be happy to wait until our 50th anniversary which is just 3 years away!!


Theresa Says:
January 9th, 2014 at 9:19 am

I have the Calipet, it was my Grandmothers and I love it!


Gloria Says:
February 4th, 2014 at 2:38 pm

I love the Vivica, I gave my son my wedding ring as it had his dad’s initials (same as my son’s) after we divorced in my thirties. Thirty years later I never remarried. How I have always longed for a really wedding ring, but never remarried.


Gina Says:
February 5th, 2014 at 4:45 pm

Calipet. I have my Mom’s wedding band which is that same style, in platinum, from my parents wedding in 1949. When my dad passed away, she took the diamonds out of the band and gave them to us daughters, and had the engagement ring set into a right hand ring. She gave me the band about a year ago (and I get the engagement ring when she passes), and I had it repaired and diamonds put into it. It’s beautiful and timeless, and of course quite meaningful.


Pamela Says:
February 6th, 2014 at 6:50 pm

Since I’m such a plain Jane and not too into flash and bling, I could see myself wearing the Osha!


Mrs. Viola Porter Says:
February 7th, 2014 at 6:36 pm

When I was a child back in 1957, I was 9 years old, my baby sister & I found lots of old jewelry in two old paint cans fill with mud, sand and one man Gold ring in size 12, with over 1,000 Diamonds in it. It was about a inch wide. Dad took it and had it appraze , they said back then it was worth around $50,000.I do not know what ever happen to it, and mom wanted us kids to give her our loot and knew all of it was real. Sister and I play with it and rehid it in our yard. But when Hurricame Donner came along in 1960, she took it with her, all the rest of that loot was gone.

Several people mentioned the “Luba” ring, am I missing something because after checking three times didn’t see any ring called a “Luba”. My ring is a simple gold band, just what I wanted. No need t have it insured, and if lost, simple and easy to replace. First marriage was with a beautiful and very expensive ring..didn’t last. Second is with a simple band of gold and I am as happy as I could be. T


Betty Says:

I am 84 years old and I would like one of each, thank you very much.
I love rings and bracelets.


Sue Ballou Says:
March 20th, 2014 at 6:37 pm

Barbara Craig, what rings are you looking at? I certainly don’t see any that you named. For me, I like the plain gold band. The Melania. All are beautiful.


Barbara Cory Says:
March 22nd, 2014 at 1:58 pm

??? You must have changed the content after these people posted, because they’re talking about rings that aren’t featured. And there is nothing wrong with being elderly, but why are the posters mostly elderly????


Jane Thornley Says:
March 25th, 2014 at 10:36 am

I have a ring very much like the Lenna that has been paased down in our family since the early 1800′s. It is gold with the 5 diamonds.


B. Earth Says:
March 25th, 2014 at 11:59 am

Hi Barbara Cory, all of our antique wedding rings are one-of-a-kind and many of the previously featured rings had sold, so we updated this article to feature newly added styles that are still available.


Debbie Says:
March 31st, 2014 at 4:09 pm

I am wearing my mother’s wedding band (purchased in 1934) as a ring guard to my wedding/engagement rings. It is VERY similar to the Osha and I love it for its simplicity. It reminds me of my parents every day!


Yvonne Ciccone Says:
April 16th, 2014 at 9:34 am

I love the Calixte art deco ring. My mother’s engagement ring had mine cut stones. I think that is the reason I gravitated toward this beautiful ring. I also like rings that tend to stand tall. Just beautiful. Are these rings for sale? I am not married but would wear this ring every day. Thank you so much for sharing all of these beautiful rings.


B. Earth Says:
April 17th, 2014 at 11:06 am

Hi Yvonne, these rings are all available for purchase on our website. If you click the image of a ring, it would take you to a page with more details on the ring. Thank you for your interest!
