Vintage-style engagement rings never seem to go out of fashion. Our grandmothers and great-grandmothers wore the delicately designed rings, and women today continue to seek engagement rings with these classic designs. The desire to wear a vintage ring has stood the test of time, and it is sure to be favored for generations to come.
The vintage rings of days past had different qualities than the vintage styles sold today. Grandma’s vintage ring may not have sparkled that much because of inconsistent faceting on old European-cut diamonds. Additionally, these engagement rings were often very delicate and easily damaged because of the intricate designs. These rings were not made to stand the test of time and were typically crafted out of thin platinum, or surprisingly, aluminum. Back in the day, aluminum was considered a precious metal and was used in jewelry because it’s lightweight, fairly durable and does not rust or tarnish. Aluminum engagement rings—there’s a piece of trivia you can stump your friends and family with!
