Why Buy Vintage Engagement Rings?

Over the past few years, there has been a marked surge in the popularity of vintage rings. While contemporary rings offer beauty and trendiness, more and more people are drawn towards vintage and antique rings for their timeless class, the feeling of wearing and being part of history that only antique jewelry can provide. A true vintage engagement ring is between thirty and 50 years old. Engagement rings older than this are technically referred to as antiques, though you might find them being sold under the same name. Many people are attracted to these types of rings because of the vast array of styles available and the certainty of finding one that matches their personality, unlike the mass-produced engagement rings of contemporary times. Also, they are considered somewhat higher quality than contemporary ones.


Antique jewelry, by being as old as they are, is not very common, and rarely will one come across matching pieces. Vintage engagement rings span a multitude of styles and designs over many eras. They are vastly different from contemporary styles and are unique and one of a kind; they automatically make the wearer stand out as someone with painstakingly good taste. If your partner has an outgoing personality that likes to be distinctive and apart from the crowd, you should seriously consider a vintage engagement ring.


These days, goods that are handcrafted are considered to be of superior quality and value to mass-produced ones. The same rule applies when it comes to engagement rings. Compared to contemporary rings, often mass-produced in generic and very similar styles, a skilled jeweler generally produces vintage engagement rings individually. This difference becomes very manifest when one compares a contemporary engagement ring with a vintage one. At the same time, the one from today is plain; the vintage engagement ring will often have intricated and distinctive designs that reflect the specific time period it was created. Although a valid argument exists that today’s advanced manufacturing processes increase quality, the human touch of vintage engagement rings will shine through.

Historical value

The decades or even centuries of history embedded in a single vintage engagement ring is one factor that makes them so attractive to couples. If you know the complete history of the ring, the knowledge will connect you to a time far in the past. If you do not, the significance can be left to your imagination. Either way, you have a piece of history around your finger. In choosing a vintage engagement ring, you should take the time to consider the various eras from which those rings are frequently sourced to find the one era you like the most and which holds the most significance for you or your partner.

Environmental Sustainability

Suppose you’re passionate about the environment and are “going green” in other areas. In that case, you should consider that the rate at which jewelry is produced worldwide today has a considerable effect on the environment, from the depletion of natural resources to the energy required for processing. Vintage engagement rings allow you to play a role in preserving our environment.

Antique and vintage engagement rings make the perfect promise; they have stood the test of time and are still loved and sought after to this day and will be for many years.

There are some wonderful rings to choose from that blend the styling of antique design and modern craftsmanship
