What does a vintage engagement ring look like?
The trend for vintage has been on the rise for some 30 years. So it is high time to take a closer look at the vintage engagement ring. The first thing you notice is the colour. A vintage engagement ring will almost always be yellow gold or rose gold, while most modern rings are made from white gold or platinum. But never an engagement ring without a precious stone, of course. If you prefer something more extravagant, choose a rose gold ring set with a green emerald, like in this example. Unique, stylish and a real dream for lovers of vintage.
