Reasons to Consider an Antique Engagement Ring

Written by: Cynthia Findlay Antiques.

As you start shopping for antique engagement rings, it’s easy to find yourself overwhelmed by the how hard it is to find something from a private dealer. It’s tempting to go to a modern jewellery store and find the latest ring, but modern jewellery lacks the personality and appeal of vintage pieces. Antique jewellery is popular because it has a timeless look.

If you’re shopping for that special piece of jewellery for that certain someone, estate jewellery might be just the way to go.

Unique Designs

Jewellers crafted pieces by hand, which gives any vintage ring a unique look that modern jewellery can’t compare to. These pieces usually belonged to someone at some point, so there is also a sense of history there that mass-produced pieces of today don’t carry.

Authentic art deco rings were created during the 1920s-1930s, so these rings are truly unique pieces that don’t have duplicates. Mass-produced rings have a rather generic quality to don’t capture the beauty of a vintage ring. You can also find collections of jewellery based around themes, like animals or artistic pottery.


When you order custom jewellery from Toronto, you’re making a statement about yourself or the feelings you have for someone else. Modern jewellery certainly has its attractive qualities, but shopping for a vintage piece with character is like going that extra mile for someone special.

Pieces were usually owned by someone before you, which means they often have history or some sentimental value attached. Imagine giving jewellery with character. That’s the timeless advantage to buying vintage.
