Soft vintage quilts, antique bottles and mason jars, grandmother's lace gloves and delicate china have all become wedding day staples in this day and age. For that reason, it should come as no real surprise that this trend toward all things vintage and antique would eventually translate into our jewelry. There are so many great vintage-inspired jewelry designs out there with this growing trend, but really, what is more beautiful than a real vintage engagement ring? A vintage engagement ring that was given away on bended knee nearly 80, 90, 100 years ago and worn in love for years and years, then given as a promise yet again to another woman to wear for the rest of her life. It doesn't get much more beautiful than that, if you ask me!
If you happen to be a hopeless romantic (or plan on marrying one), a vintage engagement ring would be absolutely perfect. The Antique Ring collection by Brilliant Earth is filled with unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, with designs from the Art Nouveau, Retro, Victorian, Modern, Edwardian and Art Deco eras, to name a few. The collection ranges from more traditional diamond solitaires to the most distinctive engagement ring designs that you won't see anywhere else.
If the antique engagement ring route doesn't exactly tickle your fancy, Brilliant Earth has brand NEW engagement rings, too! Shop the ever-popular "Halo" ring trend, featuring a center gemstone or diamond that is encircled by smaller accent diamonds (i.e. Kate Middleton's famous sapphire engagement ring). And if you happen to be a big fan of those deep blue sapphires, Brilliant Earth has an extensive collection of Sapphire Engagement Rings to peruse! Alternatively, you can always get to work with the Brilliant Earth design team to create a custom design that suits the woman who will wear it perfectly, hand selecting your own setting and diamond.
