Before making a decision, read this to know what makes vintage rings different from the rest!
They are unique
Your engagement ring is a representation of your true love, so it should be something truly unique. Its singularity will be affected if many around you have the same type of ring. According to a recent fashion article in www.popsugar.com, this is the reason why people nowadays are behind vintage rings. They are crafted by talented jewelers and would be unique master pieces with not many duplicates found around. Thus a vintage ring is the best symbol to represent your unique love to your dear one.
They make excellent heirlooms
An engagement ring is a sign of commitment and affection that has to stay on your finger till your death. You may even pass it on to your next generation as a pride possession. Take the case of Prince William who used his mother’s engagement ring to propose to his lady love. So, instead of buying an ordinary engagement ring, invest a little effort and money to pick up an exceptional one which can be a treasure for your coming generations.
Don’t worry about conflict diamonds
Some diamonds, though they may be very less in number were mined out by workers who were war captives and the money gained by selling them went to buy weapons to support the war. Such a diamond is definitely not something which you would wish to have in your engagement ring. It should symbolize love and not war or conflicts. Only diamonds produced between the early 1990s and early 2000s have this concern associated with them. The percentage of such diamonds is less than one, but why risk it when you have vintage rings as your safest option?
Their history is unmatchable
It would be a great privilege to wear a vintage ring with some history behind it. A real vintage ring would have a lot of stories associated with it regarding the ones who had worn it, where it had been, the times it had gone through, etc. A new ring would have just beauty but never such an exciting history! So if you want your engagement ring to be really special, buy an original vintage ring which is a tiny fragment of the bygone era!
So, make a wise decision and pick up the right jewel for your special occasion. Choose something which you can proudly hand over to your next generation! It’s a symbol of your eternal love; so choose the ultimate best!
