Oldies but Goodies

One of my favorite things about knowing jewelry so well is being able to look at a beautiful vintage piece and see the uniqueness and value before it is even polished. I love vintage jewelry and think that it is such a valuable piece of history and artistry. So in that light, I wanted to show you all some of our new vintage pieces that I've acquired in the last couple months.

This ring is a vintage rose cut diamond set in a rose gold setting. I love how small and simple it is, and the rosy hue of the gold adds such a warm feeling to the ring.

This band is called the "Hollin Style" and can be found with and without the diamond setting on the top.

This last ring was purchased for one very lucky lady just a week ago. It is a vintage Cluster Diamond ring from the Edwardian period and is set in rose gold. The setting was very low so it sat close to the finger and was a petite size 5. The great thing about buying vintage engagement rings is that the diamonds and gold have already been mined. It is one of the best ways to be "eco-friendly" with a diamond. And the styles are so unique and wonderfully crafted. If the style of the ring is still popular now, 100+ years later, then you know it can stand the test of time.
