The romantic elements that create the style of modern antique engagement rings have been tweaked to highlight the features this generation of women love. These new design elements honor the look of the past while incorporating a more durable, updated look. With intricate designs, timeless appeal, and delicate craftsmanship, you can understand why re-creating antique engagement rings is a popular choice for modern brides.


Vintage or Antique?

Style of antique engagement rings are considered pre-1940’s. Some people consider Vintage rings to be from 1950 – 1970. The Art Deco period of the 1920’s – 1930’s is popular right now. This style is characterized by delicate filigree and/or hand engraving. There are many styles for antique engagement rings, which were usually set with Old Mine, Old European, or Transitional cut diamonds. Antique engagement rings are inspired by rings that were created during various historic periods such as Victorian, Edwardian, and Art Deco. Today’s antique engagement rings beautifully retain the classic, handcrafted quality of your grandmother’s generation yet add a gorgeous modern element.  

Antique Engagement Rings Are Here To Stay

Most women prefer not to wear antique engagement rings that have been passed down through the generations because it may be unstably mounted, worn out, or damaged. Afraid they will lose a stone, it’s a much better option to create an entirely new ring using the design elements of the past. True antique engagement rings were typically made using very thin precious metal, which is evident in the wear and tear all these years later. Newer models are re-created to look the same, but they are built more durably to last even longer. It’s common for Vanessa Nicole Jewels to create new custom antique engagement rings using the client’s diamonds from their original antique engagement rings. Whether you choose a grandmother’s diamond or a new diamond, you can be sure that your ring will be secure, look perfect, while still retaining the design qualities of true antique engagement rings.
