Collectable Antique Rings:

  1. Cocktail rings: Many antique rings are large and ornate, making them the perfect cocktail ring choice. Wear vintage cocktail rings with your favorite frilly party dress or pair them with jeans and a cardigan. Cocktail rings are meant to be large and dramatic; keep other jewelry selections minimal and subtle when wearing estate cocktail rings.

  2. Gemstone rings: Gemstones are a fabulous way to add opulence to an ensemble and antique gemstone rings often contain rare and beautiful gemstones in unconventional settings. Consider an antique sapphire ring with a platinum setting or a vintage ruby ring with a unique gold setting. Large gemstone rings make great cocktail rings and smaller ones are fun to wear every day.

  3. Wedding rings and engagement rings: Antique wedding jewelry is incredibly romantic. If your girlfriend loves retro fashion and antique home furnishings, consider proposing with an antique engagement ring. If you want a wedding band that is unlike any other, consider estate wedding bands.

  4. Artistic rings: Antique rings and estate rings offer unique trends and style. It can be difficult to find a truly artistic ring among today's mass-produced pieces. Antique rings reflect the styles of the time period in which they were designed, and many pieces of antique jewelry are fabulously unconventional. Consider adding a geometric art deco diamond ring to your collection or spoiling yourself with an oversized hand-sculpted floral cocktail ring.
