Antique Diamond Engagement Ring

Aug 17, 2007
Normally when someone receives a diamond ring it is a proposal of marriage and a promise of life commitment. When looking for diamond engagement rings you may find the huge variety of choice a little overwhelming, should you choose a diamond solitaire, a diamond cluster or a diamond and sapphire ring.

If you want this gift to be truly memorable and hold age and beauty why not choose an antique diamond engagement ring. An antique diamond engagement ring will be special because it will hold memories and is now considered quite fashionable.

Antique diamond engagement rings may be more expensive than other rings because they are usually aged over 70 year and over that time their value would have increased and will continue to increase over time.

If you are lucky enough to have been handed down an antique engagement ring then not only will this be a beautiful ring to offer someone but it will also mean you are passing on a piece of your family and past which can really show how much you love someone and are welcoming them into your life.

When you think of an antique diamond engagement ring you may think that because the word antique means old that the ring will be dull and old looking however this is not the case, antique engagement rings are just as stunning and striking as a more modern diamond solitaire, it will also have more intricate details and you will be amazed at the craftsmanship.

Antique engagement rings come from different generations so depending on your style will determine which ring will suit you best. Whether it is from the Edwardian, Victorian or Art deco eras you will find the perfect ring for you.

Before parting with any money it is important to set yourself a budget as you can easily be swept away when looking at this type of engagement ring and be overwhelmed by their beauty which could lead to you spending a huge amount of money that you did not intend to spend.

I would always recommend that you purchase your antique diamond engagement ring from a jewelry store rather than over the internet so that you can see the ring and check for and damage and to check its authenticity.

If you have no choice other than to purchase online always read the terms and conditions focusing mainly on the returns policy, if they do not have one then do not buy.

Always ask for a report and make sure that you have sufficient insurance to cover the ring in the event of loss or damage. Most people assume that rings will automatically be covered by their home owner insurance when in fact this is not always the case.
