Who previously owned this vintage engagement ring?
Some of the most common questions people have about vintage jewelry are about previous owners of the pieces and their stories. Although we know the approximate date that our vintage rings were created by looking at the style, materials, and techniques used to make them, we don't know who they were created for or who owned them before. That is, however, one of the wonderful things about vintage jewelry-- you can create a history for the ring by making it part of your own story.
Why are vintage rings a good value?
A vintage engagement ring can be a beautiful alternative to a newly made engagement ring. Unlike what you might find in a typical jewelry store, a vintage engagement ring is not being mass-produced by the thousands. It has its own place in history. While there may be similar rings out there, each one is special. The workmanship on vintage rings is often more detailed than on contemporary pieces and the decorative motifs are typically more fully developed than in jewelry made today. The designs of the era in which the ring was created also tend to highlight the materials and have the ability to make a small stone appear more substantial than it would in modern setting.
A vintage ring is also a connection to the past and to the larger human experience. Although there is no relationship quite like yours, people have been getting married for thousands of years and have experienced life's ups and downs together the way you and your partner will. Vintage rings are an ecological choice because they're already in existence and do not require new mining (with all of its attendant problems).
