Antique engagement rings
Antique engagement rings, bringing the detail and ornamental style back to life
The name antique engagement rings is a bit misleading. These are rings bearing some antique elements or have an antique flair. They are not actual old pieces, but new rings designed in antique style. Very popular lately, the antique engagement rings are huge design field offering immense amount of combinations. Many of the current trends are derived from the antique style. The popular halo engagement rings which is a modified cluster ring is a good example. Besides the huge variety the antique engagement rings have one thing in common. They are full of small detail. Whether looked at form the front or the side they are built from details. Galleries, floral elements, architectural elements, milgrain edging and many more combined or alone bring the antique feel. Using these details gives the designer an opportunity to mould any engagement ring design into antique style. If you like antique style, but you also like the feel of some modern ring I am certain something can be done to combine the two. Just let me know. Generally the antique engagement rings are rather delicate than bulky. Bearing this in mind as well as the small detail that comes with the style A will recommend platinum as the best metal choice for white and 18k gold for yellow or rose. These metals are the ones with higher abrasion resistance and will keep the detail crisp for longer. Many of the designs are possible to optimize for a sapphire or ruby instead of diamond. This move will add colour to the piece as well as provide a possibility to use relatively large stone for limited budget. I she likes colour and/or bigger rings don’t forget to enquire about this option.
