Antique Style Jewelry

Antique style jewelry has gained much popularity in recent years including recreated antique engagement rings. The attraction to these ornately detailed antique style pieces is widespread and for varied reasons.  Nostalgic for some, artistic to others, antique style jewelry represents eras of fashion and style that have proven themselves to be timeless. Millgrain edging, hand-carved etching, detailed scroll and pavé set diamonds are just some of the beautiful characteristics found in antique 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 create some of the most impressive pieces of jewelry 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 create antique style jewelry, these modernly made, antique-looking pieces offer a glimpse into the past, but provide an unworn, durable future.

While this antique style jewelry may not be to everyone's liking, it has certainly made a presence in our store (and on our customers). These retro designs are especially popular with our brides-to-be. Antique style engagement rings and wedding sets created in white gold or platinum have easily become our best sellers. Antique style necklaces, pendants and earrings created in an antique style have also caused quite a stir at Forever Jewelers.

The bottom line is that a woman wants variety. When combined with a collection of modern pieces, antique style jewelry can make an accessory wardrobe eclectic and dynamic. Call us toll-free at 1-866-986-2248, or write us at for more information on available pieces.
