To mark our ten-year anniversary we’re taking a look at some of the most extraordinary vintage rings that have graced our collection in the past decade. These are the beauties that our antique experts fell for and customers clamored for.

The Annabelle Ring

The extravagantly luxe Art Deco-style Annabelle Ring displays a stunning asscher cut diamond accented by ten round diamonds above and below it and six baguette cut diamonds gracing the shoulders for a look of glamorous sparkle. Fine milgrain detailing adds to the unmistakably antique look.

The Princesa Ring


Breathtaking is the only way to describe the 4 carat cushion cut diamond at the center of the luxurious modern estate Princesa Ring. Once our most viewed vintage piece, the Princesa is an unforgettably classic design. The center gem is secured with chic claw prongs, and accented by two half-moon shaped diamonds.

The Reine Ring
