One of the first things most men think about when they decide to propose to the woman they love is what kind of engagement ring to choose. You’ll want something special, eye catching, and as unique as she is. If the thought of a cookie cutter diamond solitaire leaves you feeling cold then why not look at vintage engagement rings instead? It’s the perfect way to show that you really care about giving her a ring she’ll love.
Here are just some of the benefits of choosing vintage engagement rings:
Affordable modern jewellery is often mass produced and manufactured by machine. By contrast, many vintage engagement rings offered top notch craftsmanship and quality. This is because they are more likely to have been made by hand by expert craftsmen and made with love.
The attention to detail put into a handmade vintage engagement ring is immediately noticeable. You’ll also know that you are honouring and remembering the work of a craftsman who put blood sweat and tears into creating a beautiful piece of jewellery that your fiancée will treasure forever.
Many Eras and Styles to Choose From
Man has been making jewellery since the dawn of time. That means that, when it comes to choosing a vintage engagement ring, you will have many different eras and styles to choose from. If your girlfriend has a passion for a particular era then it will make your choice much easier: otherwise look in her jewellery box and use it to gauge the kind of jewellery and the era that she likes best.
The filigree, scrollwork, lace-like details, and unusual stone settings that you find in vintage engagement rings are almost impossible to find in modern jewellery.
A Story That Deserves to Be Told
Vintage jewellery comes with a story: and often that is a story that deserves to be told. Whether you source a vintage engagement ring that once belonged to a famous celebrity or one that was cherished by a local couple that were married for decades, the story of your vintage engagement ring can feel like a good omen.
Knowing your engagement rings history will only serve to enhance how special and unique the piece is: allowing your relationship to add to a story that has already lasted a lifetime.
A Piece as Unique as Her
You think your girlfriend is one of a kind, right? Then she should have an engagement ring that is one of a kind too. When you choose a vintage ring, you will know that no one else will be wearing a ring like hers: it is a unique and special piece.
It’s unlikely that anyone else will ever have seen a vintage engagement ring like the one you’ve chosen before, and your new fiancée won’t have to worry that her friends or colleagues will have the same ring either. That kind of unique piece is priceless!
