What is a vintage style engagement ring? A "vintage style"ring is made with vintage-inspired designs and vintage diamonds. These rings have newer, beautifully made settings reminiscent of the past, also featuring older, authentic vintage stones. Inspired by the decades that brought us art deco, retro and mid-century modernist rings, vintage style rings are new yet timeless. If you love a classic look for less, vintage style rings are a must!

Made popular during the Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco periods, old European cut diamonds have round shapes, elongated and larger tables than that of older cut stones. Although vintage style rings are crafted with newly designed settings, their essence remains frozen in time with the addition of authentic vintage diamonds. Heirlooms in the making, the timeless beauty of these rings speak for themselves!

Like other vintage cut stones, old mine cut diamonds were hand cut to increase the stone's color and clarity. As the name indicates, these cuts retain most of the rough form of the diamond as it came from the mine. The most prominent characteristics of these diamonds are the open culet (the round facet at the bottom of the stone) and it's square-like cushion shape. The very top facet, called the table, is very small, and features a high crown and large pavilion. With their rounded or square corners, old mine cut diamonds have a rare fire and broad flash of sparkle that are sure to shine for generations to come!

Similar to the old European cut, round brilliant cut diamonds have either 57 or 58 facets, but it is the shape and placement of these facets that give each cut their distinct differences. As the name indicates, round brilliant diamonds are cut specifically to enhance their brilliance. This means light that goes into the diamond will bounce right back, creating a glitz and glow that radiates. These vintage style rings are a unique contemporary choice with a nod to the past.
There is a reason vintage rings keep coming back - vintage never truly goes out of style! Symbolizing love, truth and commitment, it is no surprise sapphires became a lasting popular accent to our favorite vintage inspired rings. Ever since the boom in demand during the 1920's, the use of sapphires in engagement rings hardly falters through the decades. Just as sapphires are a popular feature of today's engagement rings, they were just as popular only a few decades ago - hello, Princess Diana!
