How To Buy Vintage and Antique Engagement Rings

Are you planning on buying an engagement ring? Finding the perfect ring can be a challenge, but make no mistake; an engagement ring is one of the more significant purchases you will make in your lifetime.

Today more and more people are choosing vintage and antique engagement rings, over their more modern counterparts. If you’re looking for an engagement ring that is unique you might consider one yourself.

Let’s take a look at some things you should consider before choosing the perfect ring.

Consider Rings from Different Time Periods

First and foremost let’s define antique jewelry. Antique jewelry is not necessarily estate jewelry. Estate jewelry simply means it has been previously owned.

Antique jewelry on the other hand would be defined as over 50 years old. There are several styles that are in vogue like Victorian (1835-1900), Edwardian (1900-1920), and Art Deco (1920-1930) all of which relate to a period of time.

Victorian rings are often set in yellow gold; perhaps rose gold, and designs can be simple to very intricate. Some Victorian rings may be accented with other stones including pearls. Rings from this period also featured a mine cut, which includes an extra row of diamonds at the bottom of the stone.

Edwardian period rings often have rose cut diamonds and brilliant sapphires offering a beautiful contrast and attention grabbing eye appeal often with beautiful scrollwork on the setting.

Art Deco engagement rings are among the most popular of all antique engagement rings. Art Deco rings are generally colorful, set with contrasting gemstones in platinum settings or rose gold and often have geometrical looks and influences from Asian and Egyptian artisans.

Where To Buy Antique Engagement Rings

Antique engagement rings can be found at a variety of places including antique stores, jewelers, estate sales, pawn shops and online. As with most items you purchase these days it’s buyer beware. Make sure that you get a complete description of the piece, including its age, size, condition and of course the four C’s. Color, carat, clarity, and cut.

Antique rings will have stones that were cut by hand and have an unusual more unique appearance. The clearer the stone, the more valuable the ring will be. As for color, Antique engagement rings often come with diamonds that have yellow, green or soft pink tints.

Your ring should be one-of-a-kind. Online vendors will provide detailed descriptions and high-resolution pictures of rings for you to consider before purchasing.

Reputable dealers will always offer a certified gemologist report for you. In many case multiple reports. Always ask about a return policy in the event you become unhappy with your purchase.

Finally, as much as you would like to buy an antique engagement ring on your own and surprise your spouse to be, you may want to consider shopping for that all-important purchase with her. This will make sure she really loves the ring you buy for her.

Lana Jewelry Introduces StoneGold Precious Stone and Karat Gold Jewelry

Chicago-based Lana Jewelry is known for its modern stylings of 14k yellow, rose, and white gold jewels, and designer Lana Bramlette is now gearing up to add more color to the line for spring 2013. The StoneGold collection—which comprises 50 SKUs of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings with rose-cut colored stones—will be available in stores at the end of the month, with prices starting at $610 retail.

“We are using our iconic chain in the pieces and intertwining stones with them,” says Bramlette. “We take design cues from Donna Karan, where we have just a slight variation of looks from season to season. This season, you see our gypsy disc motif that is boho and cool, spikes that connect to my love of geometric designs, and crosses worn lengthwise in chains. I don’t know if you can call a cross sexy, but you can be fashion-forward when you wear what you believe in.”

And one of the differences between her slice earrings and others? Price. “Ours start at $1,110 in gold with sapphires, are easy to understand, and blend so perfectly with all of our other designs. “You always see slices set with diamonds that cost $5,000,” Bramlette says. “We have not seen them like ours in the marketplace.”
