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
Georgian, Early Victorian, Mid-Victorian, Late Victorian,
Arts and Crafts era, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, Art Deco and Retro
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,
