Vintage Style Engagement Rings
Vintage style engagement rings have a timeless allure. The intricate design, antique finish and sense of history makes them irresistible to many brides-to-be, and rightfully so. Dainty pave designs, fancy filigree and distinctive etching turns a diamond engagement ring into a vintage-inspired work of art.
Vintage style engagement rings run the gamut in look and price, and are a great option for women who love feminine, romantic ring designs. Some of our favorite vintage engagement ring designs hail from Apples of Gold Jewelry, whose ring styles range from antique Art Deco to vexing Victorian. Even better, their prices are extremely reasonable, perfect for those with expensive taste on a strict budget.
