Some of the most beautiful and unique jewellery is often from decades and centuries past. Although not all of the methods of making jewellery have changed through the years, and many contemporary artisans make an effort to keep the old-time methods alive, fine vintage jewellery has a special charm that is very difficult to replicate. The special element that time adds to objects, especially enduringly beautiful ones, cannot be recreated.
When someone is ready to pop the question, the ring that’s pulled out can speak volumes about a soon-to-be fiancé’s level of commitment, thoughtfulness, and even personality. Even if a would-be bride is already familiar with her beloved’s character traits, the poignancy of the situation serves to highlight them when being proposed to. And the fact of the matter is that everyone wants to have a lovely story to tell the kids when they begin asking about how the family got started.
Given all that’s at stake, it’s no surprise many folks belabor the choosing of the most perfect ring possible. Alas, not everyone has at their disposal finely crafted vintage rings within the familial coffers, much less something like a sapphire and diamond ring, à la Princess Di, to sway a pursued lover with.
Although not everyone can afford a ring that costs tens or even millions of dollars, a little ingenuity and careful selection will go a long way in securing you a very special ring. Exercise your taste within the scope of vintage jewellery and you may find affordable, yet ineffably priceless vintage or antique rings to adorn the finger of your true love.
