Engagement rings are a very personal choice – it’s something that you will hopefully wear forever, so you want to make sure it fits your personal style. For some brides, a classic and timeless ring is the way to go, such as a simple solitaire with a round diamond. Others embrace modern trends, which today include pear-shaped center stones and halo settings. For something a little different, a vintage ring can be a great option.
Sometimes vintage rings can be acquired through an heirloom piece, which of course has an extra special personal touch, but estate pieces or other curated rings are other ways to find that perfect ring. If you see a photo of an engagement ring from decades past, but you are not able to obtain that exact one, creating a custom ring inspired by the design will help you get the ring of your dreams. Vintage-inspired rings are also great if you want to blend elements from the past with the present.
