Engagement rings come in all shapes and sizes. Some are extravagant and flashy while others are simple and chic. But when most people propose to the one they love, they purchase a new ring from a jewellery store. While there is nothing wrong with buying a new ring, it’s been done before many times.
When it’s time to ask the woman (or man) of your dreams to marry you, consider proposing with something unique: a vintage engagement ring. Here are the top reason you might want to propose with a vintage engagement ring.
It’s is One-of-a-Kind
Most women want to feel special, especially when the man they love proposes to them. Popping the question with a unique vintage engagement ring will tell her that she’s unique and beautiful, and nothing but a one-of-a-king ring is good for her. Vintage rings are rare and still hold their beauty and luster after all these years.
It’s an Investment
Even new engagement rings are investments, but vintage pieces such as Art Deco rings are especially worth the cost. A vintage engagement ring might cost more than a regular engagement ring because it is typically made with higher quality stones and precious metals. Vintage rings are also crafted better than contemporary designs.
It Has a History
Many people propose with family heirlooms, antique rings that have been in their families for generations. But not everyone has a vintage ring passed down to them. The next best thing? Visiting an antique shop. If you purchase a vintage engagement ring from the right antique shop, it might come with an interesting story behind it. An engagement ring with history adds value and wonder to the piece, making the proposal all the more special.
