ANTIQUE DESIGN ENGAGEMENT RINGS – THINGS TO CONSIDER

If you are shopping for antique style engagement rings you should consider broadening your search to include vintage engagement rings or vintage style engagement rings as many jewelers and online retailors will use those terms instead.

If you want your engagement ring to only have diamonds, that is fine. However, that is what is overwhelmingly popular today. Remember that this was not always the case. Many true antique engagement rings have a mix of diamonds and other stones, oftentimes the center stone is not a diamond.

In this article we are discussing shopping for new rings that look old. However, if you want real antique rings there are some things you should keep in mind. You will want to get the ring appraised for value, to make sure the stones are real. In the appraisal you can also ask for the year or estimated year the ring was made.

If you purchase an antique diamond ring please understand that the 4 C's grading system is relatively new and therefore the diamond in the ring may not be of the highest quality.

One more thing you should consider is the cost. An antique design ring which is created in the modern era will cost less in most cases than actual antique rings which need to be authenticated. They is a far greater supply of new rings created to look like older styles than there is of actual antique and vintage engagement rings which is what will drive the cost up. You need to decide if you want the look of the ring or the history of it.
