Antique Engagement Rings
Vintage Engagement Rings are often thought of as being the same thing as antique engagement rings, and in a way they are. However vintage engagement rings are also called “Period Engagement Rings”, as vintage simply means a specific time period.
Vintage Style Engagement Rings are rings that replicate the look and feel of that particular time period. Usually by very skilled jewelry craftsman. You could say this “The designer’s bracelets and rings have the vintage look of jewelry from the 1920s.”
Although most people would agree that “Antique Engagement Rings” are engagement rings that are at least 50 years old, Vintage Engagement Rings can be used to describe just about any type of engagement ring, from any time period in the past. This is not to say that an engagement ring purchased just last year would be considered “vintage”, however it is possible that a ring purchased 10 to 20 years ago, could be. We have included a quick reference guide below to describe the most popular Antique Engagement Rings and their vintage time periods.
1) Victorian engagement rings / 1830’s to 1900
2) Edwardian engagement rings / 1900 to 1920’s
3) Art Deco engagement rings / 1920’s to 1930’s
4) Retro engagement rings / 1940’s to 1950’s
Tip: Do not confuse antique engagement rings and vintage engagement rings with “Estate Engagement Rings”. Although many antique and vintage engagement rings may also be an “estate ring”, not all estate rings are antique or vintage. An estate ring simply means that the ring was from an “estate”. However the estate could have originated from any time period, even just last year.
