“Love is lovelier
The second time around
Just as wonderful
With both feet on the ground”
While in the media images of young love abound, far away from the blogosphere there are many instances of aging boomers finding love and happiness later in life. And for many, the ideal engagement setting is an antique diamond engagement ring.
A vintage engagement setting is a symbolic reference to their parents’ love, as well as a concrete image of permanence.
Certainly mature couples have more money to spend than their youthful counterparts, and antique ring settings are not only appealing, but also resonate on a deeper, more meaningful level.
“Here is the love that will sustain me for years.”
While younger couples need that solitaire ring as an affirmation and to show to their friends, more mature couples need satisfy no one but themselves and may enjoy a substantial antique ring setting regardless of fashion.
In addition to a newfound freedom from shoulds, couples can expect their weddings to be more fun, filled with invitees they really want, as well as the ones they must have!
Antique diamond engagement rings can function both as a symbol of renewal and also of continuity of tradition. Vintage diamond jewelry can be a tangible affirmation of one’s connection to the basic beliefs and practices which root us to our community.
