Antique Engagement Rings – Go Antique or Go Home

Antique Engagement RingsI love a shiny diamond in a shiny setting that is all blinged out with diamonds and such, but there is something about antique engagement rings that have so much style and substance that I can’t help but wonder why more people don’t go this route when they are buying engagement rings.

First, to be considered an antique, the piece must be at least 100 years old.  Now, you can buy something that is a reproduction, in other words, it was made to look old, but that is not the same as an actual antique.  Think about it…each of these antique engagement rings tells a story.  Wouldn’t it be cool to add your story to the timeline of the story that has already unfolded?

Antique Engagement Rings

All of the following rings are available in my eBay store.  Imagine what stories these antique engagement rings could tell you if they could talk.  Maybe they would tell you about being taken for a horse and buggy ride through the park and then being placed on a finger in the center of Central Park.

Or perhaps another would talk about the war in England and how her owner worried her around and around her finger while her fiancée was off fighting in the war, waiting for him to return, and how happy she was when he did.

And then there could be another story that tells of how she was put away in a box when her beloved passed away and her owners knuckles swelled too large from arthritis to be worn anymore, but she could talk about the tears that were shed into her hands while she was worn.

These antique engagement rings would talk about the small hands that touched them as they crossed streets and walked to school, they would talk of gloves that were made of wool and silk that sheathed them and they would talk of hard work in the kitchen or maybe the factories when times were rough.

They would talk about children being born, grandchildren being brought over for visits, loved ones coming and going, birth and death and life.  They would give you so much and still have so much left to give.

This is what makes the antique engagement ring so fabulous.  So, why wouldn’t you want to invest in this?

Would you invest in an antique engagement ring after seeing these instead of a new ring now?
