Antique, Vintage & Estate Engagement Rings


Good Afternoon from rainy Melbourne to all of you around the world.
Today I want to share some awesome antique, vintage and estate 
engagement rings with you and  for those of you who might not have 
a clear definition of what those terms referring to, here are some explanations:
Antique Jewelry: is referred to a piece that is at least 100 years old and 
was collected  due to rarity and condition.
Vintage Jewelry: is referred to a piece from many decades or eras and eras 
might have many different designs, the eras might include: 
Georgian, Early Victorian, Mid-Victorian, Late Victorian, 
Arts and Crafts era, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, Art Deco and Retro 
(We will come back to these eras in future posts)
Estate Jewelry: is referred to a piece that was previously owned, usually
acquired from estates of deceased or living, and private entities, it should 
not be confused with vintage as estate jewelry is not from any particular era.
As you might remember my Fred Leighton's post, I am personally a huge 
fan of antique and vintage jewelry and here are my favorite pieces for 
our engagement ring ritual.
let me know which one you do like the most,
