Antique Engagement Rings

Antique Engagement Rings

Antique engagement rings recreated in white gold or platinum have gained much popularity in recent years and have easily become our best sellers at Forever Jewelers. The attraction to these ornately detailed antique style rings is widespread and for varied reasons.  Nostalgic for some, artistic to others, antique engagement rings and antique style jewelry represent eras of fashion and style that have proven themselves to be timeless. Antique Millgrain edging, hand-carved etching, detailed scroll and pavé set diamonds are just some of the beautiful characteristics found in antique style jewelry.

The increasing demand for white metals such as platinum and white gold may also be a factor. Platinum, being a durable and pure metal, has been used to recreate some of the most impressive pieces of antique engagement rings to date. During the war effort of World War 2, platinum was banned for use in jewelry production, so white gold was used instead. Today, both metals are highly prized for their bright, contrasting appearance. When used to recreate antique engagement rings, these modernly made, antique looking pieces offer a glimpse into the past, but provide an unworn, durable future - making these rings the perfect choice for many couples.

While these retro designs may not be to everyone's liking, it has certainly made a presence in our store (and on our customers). In addition to engagement rings and weddings sets, antique style jewelry such as necklaces, pendants and earrings have also caused quite a stir.
