Vintage Engagement Rings With A Modern Twist

By  |  0 Comments


One of the most overlooked choices for Engagement Rings are the Vintage or Antique pieces. Many times rings have the beauty and character not seen in some of today’s options. The one issue we encounter with antique and vintage rings is they contain center stones just too small for the current large stone phenomenon. Please let us explain that with a few simple changes we can turn any ring into the most prized engagement ring.

Family Heirloom, Estate, Vintage, and or Antique: Possibilities are Endless!

Over the years we have many couples come into the store wanting to trade in a ring that has gifted to them for the purpose of an engagement ring. Our first question to the couple: Why? What does this ring not have that you are looking for? The answer is usually “it is just too small” We love hearing this, as being a family business; we do business with family values in mind! After hearing this we sit them down and explain what we can do to make their treasure into the perfect Engagement Ring and to make it special for the couple!

As a Jewelry store that specializes in Estate Jewelry we have those special pieces you cannot find anywhere else. Our ring selection ranges in age from 1-100 years old and all available to be redesigned into the perfect engagement ring. If you find a perfect ring that has a Ruby as a center stone or is set with the a different cut than you are looking for?.. We can easily switch it out for a Diamond of any cut and size you desire.

Let us help you create your one of a kind, perfect, vintage engagement ring with just the right amount of a modern twist!
