For out-of-the-ordinary engagement rings, something which is from another time period – consider Vintage engagement rings. Vintage engagement rings have a lot to offer if you want a ring that is both beautiful and meaningful.

Often these rings are passed down from generation to generation. However if that’s not the case in your family but you still want a vintage ring for your significant other there are plenty of places to look. Estate sales are certainly one way to find all kinds of vintage and antique jewelry including engagement rings.

One popular type of vintage ring is the Victorian style engagement ring. The Victorian era spanned the years between 1837 and 1901. There are three different categories under this era which are Early, Mid and Late. Early Victorian rings often featured clusters of small diamonds rather than one large one because at that time diamonds were quite scarce.

Late Victorian era rings featured more solitaire stones as well as colored gemstones surrounded by diamonds. Victorian jewelry is usually done in yellow or rose gold and often features intricate detailing.
