Over the last few years antique engagement rings have increased in popularity due to their beautiful styles, unique qualities and romantic historical backgrounds. The engagement ring has to be something truly special to top off that perfect moment, and as it is something your partner will wear for life it has to be something they will love and cherish for years to come. There are many benefits to antique engagement rings over modern pieces, and with a little research you will soon realise what they are and why these rings are so special. We recently caught up with the team behind Antique Diamond Rings and Laurelle Antique Jewellery to look at why an antique ring makes the perfect engagement ring in a little more depth!
Romance Isn’t Dead
Romance is the main part of a proposal, so the more romantic the ring the better. What could be better than a ring which has seen many proposals and lived through a romantic history? There is a beautiful mystery around antique engagement rings which makes it the perfect ring for a proposal, and even if your partner isn’t a fan of second hand jewellery they will fall in love with the idea of something so romantically sentimental. Second hand jewellery is sometimes something people stay away from. If you stay open minded then there is nothing more beautiful than a delicate, sparkling diamond from the past.
The unique designs are certainly something which draws people to choosing an antique engagement ring. Due to their age it is very unlikely you will come across another piece the same, and with antique jewellery coming from many eras there is a huge variety of intricate and unique designs to choose from.
