Vintage style engagement rings are newly made rings designed to look like they are from a past era. They are typically made using modern techniques and materials but with design elements that reflect a specific era's style.

Antique style engagement rings, on the other hand, are also newly made rings, but they are designed to replicate an antique ring's style and design using traditional techniques and materials.

Vintage style engagement rings are designed to reflect the design elements of a specific era, such as the Art Deco, Victorian, or Edwardian era. The exact era depends on the designer's preferences and the client's tastes.

Antique style engagement rings typically reflect the style and design elements of an earlier era. They may incorporate antique design elements, such as filigree work, hand engraving, and milgrain details, to create a vintage-inspired look.

Vintage and antique engagement rings often feature unique and rare gemstones that are also commonly used in modern rings. Some popular gemstones used in vintage and antique style engagement rings include:

  • Diamonds: Diamonds have been a popular choice for engagement rings for centuries, and vintage and antique rings often feature unique cuts and settings.
  • Sapphires: Sapphires were a popular choice in the Art Deco era and are known for their deep blue color. They also come in nearly all hues of the rainbow.
  • Rubies: Rubies are known for their deep red color and were often used in Victorian and Edwardian-era rings.
  • Emeralds: Emeralds have a distinctive green color and were popular in the Art Nouveau era.
  • Pearls: Pearls were a popular choice in the Victorian era and were often used in delicate and intricate settings.
