Many couples choose to represent their commitment using antique engagement rings - or a ring that carries a story from the past and a sense of unique craftsmanship. This is no surprise, as antique engagement rings tend to reflect the design aesthetics of the era in which they find inspiration.
For example, the intricate filigree work of the Edwardian era, geometric designs of the Art Deco period, or the romantic motifs of the Victorians. Antique rings typically feature designs that are seen as one-of-a-kind or rare, as they tend to carry distinctive elements that set them apart from contemporary styles. Many also feature various gemstones, such as sapphires, rubies, and emeralds alongside diamonds. Newly crafted antique-inspired rings combine the charm of vintage designs with the convenience of modern jewellery making. So, these rings which are created with the intent to replicate the aesthetics and characteristics of antique styles allow you to enjoy the beauty of vintage designs while benefiting from the reliability of contemporary manufacturing techniques. For example, antique engagement rings can incorporate traditional metals like platinum, yellow gold, or rose gold but also use modern alloys for added strength and longevity.
