Love It! Estate Engagement Rings

Posted by

While I love a sparkly new diamond just as much as the next girl, there is something special about the unpolished, timeworn look of estate jewelry. Maybe it's the understated beauty of the hand-cut stones in the popular shapes of the time -- rose, old European, and Asscher -- or maybe it's the aged metal, but these types of rings seem to tell a story.

One of my favorite sources is Erstwhile Jewelry, a New York-based estate jewelry company. The word erstwhile means "belonging to a prior time," and all of their pieces seem simply bathed in history. Whether you're searching for that perfect antique piece or not, I think everyone can appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship in these very precious rings.

  • I love that the erstwhile name itself means something, that is the entire reason behind Vintage & Antique Jewelry - it's finding a beautiful history & meaning in all your fashion pieces. Every girl feels like a princess in vintage diamonds, because deep down it's easy to imagine that some time in history - maybe (just maybe) a princess really DID wear this beautiful vintage diamond! :)
