Majority of women instantly associates engagement rings with big, beautiful diamonds set on white gold or platinum. But for some, something a little different appeals more to them. A vintage engagement ring, for example, has its inherent uniqueness and charm, and are typically less expensive.
What Is a Vintage Engagement Ring?
If you’re shopping for a vintage engagement ring that you know will match your partner’s style, you’re in for a treat because they cost less than most modern rings, and they are arguably more ecologically sound because no recent mining was done to make them.
But, what does a ‘vintage ring’ really means? Generally, vintage rings are some of the most unique finds you’ll see in jewellery displays nowadays because they would have been made by artisans over 50 years ago.
Unlike modern pieces of jewellery that involves laser cutting, vintage rings required a higher level of craftsmanship that would be extremely difficult and expensive to replicate today. Some people like the idea that their ring is made centuries ago and that it has a story attached to it.
This is why buying a vintage engagement ring to propose to your partner makes sense if she is particularly the sentimental type. The tiny imperfections that a vintage piece have picked up over the last 50 years of use add to the story and the charm of the jewellery.
