It's official. When it comes to engagement rings, contemporary couples are looking for a unique piece that tells a story.
Take a cue from the ever popular vintage-inspired trends and consider fine jewelry with Victorian or art deco flair. When it comes to modern heirlooms, these three trends are spot on.
1. Three Stones
The three stone engagement rings are not only lovely but meaningful. Many couples choose this ring because to them, the three stones represent “past, present and future.” Alternately, the ring can symbolize “friendship, love and fidelity.” If you are a couple who wants to have deeper, more personal meaning in your engagement ring choice, the three-stone engagement ring just may be for you.
2. Color Gemstones
Nothing makes a vintage inspired piece of fine jewelry dazzle like a bold burst of color. Engagement rings from the Edwardian era, are beloved for their intricacy and femininity. The use of colored gemstones, and intricate details are hallmarks of this period.
3. Intricate Metalwork
Filigree and scrolling metalwork lend engagement rings a romantic, old world feel. Intricate metalwork gives even new rings a timeless, vintage look. Skilled workmanship and expert craftsmanship are required to create the elaborate and delicate designs.
