About Vintage Engagement Ring
When you have found a love and life partner for the ages, there are few better ways to demonstrate your commitment than a vintage engagement ring. Whether you have got your heart set on a Georgian ring or an Art Deco design, or something from the mod '60s, there are some important considerations to bear in mind. The condition is the most important: even the best-made pieces from bygone eras can suffer wear and tear and ornate pieces with intricate detailing are the most suspect. Stones from other decades were often cut in different styles than modern jewellery, and with less precision and technology, so the four Cs of diamond buying, carat, cut, clarity, and colour, are of less importance. You will also need to consider how often a ring will be worn. Finally, you may want to consider what sort of wedding band, if any, you will wear with the ring. A vintage engagement ring makes for a lovely statement piece, so your wedding ring should not compete with, or detract from, it.
