88 Vintage-Inspired Engagement Rings

Updated 12/16/15

There';s something so special about vintage-inspired engagement rings. Even though they're not actually decades old, they give your most important piece jewelry an elegant, timeless and seriously one-of-a-kind feel.

As for what defines a ring as a "vintage" aesthetic, it's truly all in the details. Etched metals, floral motifs, smaller, triple-set stones, and even gem stones like sapphires, rubies, and emeralds give a ring an old-world feel. Back in the day, rose-cut and cushion cut (once called old mine cut) stones were all the rage, as was yellow gold. Another telltale sign is an asscher cut diamond or setting. Micro-pave bands in a more mosaic-like arrangement (as opposed to the popular halo) make for an antique-look, too, as does any and every art deco-style gem.

One of the benefits of rocking a replica rather than the real deal? You'll save money because true vintage gems tend to be more expensive. Plus, you have more options! Plenty of our favorite vintage ring dealers like Single Stone and Trumpet & Horn have tons of pretty antique-style rings to choose from, but jewelers like Blue Nile, Beverley K., Anna Sheffield and Forevermark offer vintage-inspired rings too. And, most importantly, since vintage rings are one of a kind, you might fall in love with something that's no longer in stock. Luckily, that's never the case with vintage-inspired rings.
