What to Know About Vintage Engagement Rings

Vintage engagement rings are classic and timeless. They feature styling that hearkens to the past, including filagree and art eco elements. While vintage rings can mean any engagement ring over 20 years old, it can also mean a vintage-style engagement ring, a new ring crafted to feature antique elements. Antique rings are pieces that were made over 100 years ago. 

The 4 C's of Diamonds

When shopping for a diamond engagement ring, remember the 4 C's. These standard characteristics for a diamond can help determine its quality and value.

  • Cut. The cut of a diamond has nothing to do with its shape. Instead, cut refers to how well a diamond is cut and polished.

  • Color. Diamond color ranges on a scale from D to Z, with D being the most clear and Z being the most cloudy. 

  • Clarity. While almost all diamonds have some imperfections, a stone's clarity indicates not only how many blemishes the diamond has but also how visible those blemishes are to the naked eye.

  • Carat. A diamond's carat is its weight. Engagement rings can be referred to as having a 2-carat center stone or a 3-carat total weight, including the center stone and any accent stones.

When looking for the perfect ring, consider what elements matter most to your loved one. Some people prioritize a larger carat, while others prefer that the diamond's cut and clarity be extraordinary, even if the ring is a smaller carat weight.

Tips for Buying an Engagement Ring

It can be overwhelming to look for the right ring. Try not to get so fixated on one style or cut that you aren't open to other possibilities. Traditional settings aren't for everyone. Many beautiful vintage rings feature unique settings or gemstone centerstones, such as emeralds, sapphires, and rubies. At W & Co. Fine Jewelry, we have a wide selection of both timeless and modern pieces, so you can be sure of finding a piece that fits your vibe.

It might help to have a friend or trusted advisor with you while ring shopping. It is even better if that friend knows the tastes of the person you're shopping for. This friend can provide a second opinion and insights into what your beloved might like. Know your love's ring sizing ahead of time as well. Some rings don't allow for resizing due to their construction, so knowing this information can prevent disappointment and ensure you find the perfect size and fit.
