Here, you’ll find a range of gorgeous antique style engagement rings in a variety of cuts and settings. More and more brides-to-be are choosing antique style settings and vintage-looking engagement rings because, while modern designs may be eye-catching in the moment, who knows if they’ll stand the test of time?
On the other hand, when you look at your grandmother’s engagement ring or any other antique ring, you see timeless, ageless beauty, complete with detailed milgrain and filigree that sparkles and shines, as breathtaking as the day it was first made. Though fewer brides are wearing their grandmothers’ (or grandmother-in-laws’) rings anymore, more are choosing vintage style engagement rings that are inspired by the engagement rings and settings of the past.
At Da’Carli, we are committed to creating engagement rings that you will be just as thrilled to wear in 50 years as you are today. Among these antique style engagement rings, you’ll find princess cut, round, emerald cut, oval, and a number of other diamond shapes in settings with filigree and milgrain details, as well as sapphire accented engagement rings with the clearest, most brilliant diamonds offset by deep, lustrous blue sapphires. We also have ruby accented rings, as well as rings with small diamond accents.
What makes antique style engagement rings so beautiful? What gives them their timeless styles? More often than not, antique engagement rings had tiny detailed patterns worked into the metal of the band. Depending on the style and pattern, this detail was either called milgrain (French for “1000 grains”) or filigree.
Carving into the metal of the band and the shaft creates more surfaces for light to reflect off of and more interesting shapes to gaze upon as you turn the ring this way and that. With a milgrained or filigreed ring, you can achieve a much more elegant look that will never go out of style.
Think of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Imagine exuding vintage glamour reminiscent of her beauty and style. Now think of capturing all of that style and class in your engagement ring. Think of the smile you’d wear every time you gazed upon it.
We like to believe that Ms. Hepburn would have been happy to wear any of Da’Carli’s antique style engagement rings and that you will find years of enjoyment and love in one of our wide selection of high-quality and beautiful antique style engagement rings.
