Hello there 🙂
We are pretty sure that an engagement ring would be welcome with us any Time of year, but engagement season is one thing, and we're right in the middle of it. This time, however, we're taking a break from trend reporting about engagement rings and how much we have to spend on a ring to talk about some kind of engagement ring that always stays on trend: vintage.
Vintage engagement rings are perfect for wearers who want to experience a piece of history with their piece of jewelry or simply don't want to wear a ring that looks like everyone else. But the journey of vintage engagement ring shopping is a daunting affair. We are here to help you. We've searched the internet for sources filled with unique options from different eras, whether you're a fan of Art Deco, Victorian, Edwardian, or Georgian styles (to name a few). We ultimately narrowed it down to nine retailers who have the best assortment of fashion-approved, unique rings for girls.
Keep scrolling to learn more about them and browse our offerings on their websites.
Trumpet & Horn's well-organized downtown Los Angeles website divides the variety of stunning rings by era, so you can easily narrow down the choices if you're interested in a particular style.
1stdibs is an auction website that, according to its website, deals with "the best collectors, designers and curators in the world" so that you know you are getting a quality product. The assortment of thousands of vintage engagement rings listed on the website is frankly stunning.
