Vintage Wedding Rings to Die For….

…. also known as “HEY MR BF, HERE’S YOUR VISUAL GUIDE!”

Okay, I’m half kidding and half not – since I am fully aware that the BF is thinking of ways to pop the question. (Seriously, don’t waste money, I’m a done deal. Spend the moolah on a giganto bling bling instead of events and venues and decorations.)

There’s gonna be an overload of flowers, hearts and kisses today as well as teary eyed proposals so I thought I’ll hint share the types of rings that appeal to me. The perfect ring for me comes from the extreme ends of the spectrum – either a very simple classic solitaire with no embellishments or, vintage designs. Solitaires are a dime a dozen but vintage stuff doesn’t even register with a typical male so Mr BF needs something to work with. Ignore me as I pepper this post with not-so-subtle prodding.

2.02 Carat Vintage Art Deco Engagement Ring

This Art Deco vintage engagement ring is fit for a queen made in platinum and centered with a 2.02 carat GIA certified old European cut diamond with E color and VS2 clarity. Center diamond is in a bezel set basket with a filigree gallery which resembles a royal crown. There are 3 single cut diamonds on each shoulder. The minimal profile of the setting accentuates the stone all while sitting comfortably low on the finger.

Stunning gold crown ring

Saw this on Pinterest. So so so elegant.

2.06 Carat Old European Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

Set in platibum and centered with a 2.06 carat EGL certified old European cut diamond with I-J color and SI1 clarity. Center diamond is accented with single cut diamonds on the shoulders. Although this is a fairly simple ring, it boast a strong design indicative of the Art Deco period.

Mid-Century 14 Kt White Gold Old European Cut Diamond Engagement Ring Circa 1960’s

This wonderful vintage engagement ring contains 1 original vintage old european cut diamond weighing approximately 0.55 carats with AGI consultation stating approximate F-G color and VS clarity. This vintage diamond is set in 14 kt white gold triple claw prongs and a vintage box design. This is a very sweet vintage engagement ring. (Yeah this looks like what I’m wearing now, but its… BIGGER.)

6.48 Carat Antique Cushion Cut Diamond Ring

Aesthetically speaking, diamonds simply do not come finer (more gorgeous, that is) than this truly magnificent 6.48 carat antique cushion-cut diamond, accompanied by a GIA – Gem Trade Laboratory – report stating: ‘I’ color – ‘VS2’ clarity. The diamond is tastefully and elegantly presented in its original platinum and diamond Edwardian setting, glistening with French-cut diamonds down each side, tiny round diamonds all around the gallery and masterful hand engraving. The photograph speaks for itself and the actual diamond speaks much much louder. An astonishingly beautiful and breathtaking original antique diamond ring – circa 1910-1920.

So… marry me? I would love you even if you sold a liver to fund my horribly expensive tastes.

Happy Valentine’s Day y’all!
