Trait #2: "I couldn't care less about brands." If you were to walk the celebrity red carpet and were asked the proverbial "Who are you wearing?" you wouldn't have a clue. You think of jewelry as art and you know what you like when you see it. Who designed it? Who cares? All that matters is that it catches your eye. The same is definitely true of your antique style wedding ring.
Trait #3: "I have a sense of timeliness about me." You're not part of the throwaway mentality. You believe things--like wedding rings--are meant to last in the same way you believe that marriage vows are forever.
Trait #4: "I'm a romantic at heart." Maybe you watched your grandparents' love affair last for decades and you vowed your marriage would be just like theirs. Perhaps you like strolling vintage shops and imagining the romance behind your favorite jewelry pieces. Whatever fuels your vintage style wedding ring attraction, there's a hint of sentimentality and hopeless romanticism behind it.
Trait #5: "I honor traditions but I'm drawn to things that are uniquely me too." You're an interesting blend of old and new. You might be wearing your mother's wedding gown, or at least have drawn inspiration from it. You want your wedding day to give a nod to the past but you don't want it to be a mirror image of yesteryear. You believe there's room for a modern touch (hence the antique style wedding ring as opposed to an antique one), even if you do embrace all the traditional aspects. Your big day will likely be a harmonious blend of the past, present, and future.
How many of these vintage style wedding ring characteristics do you identify with? No matter which vintage style wedding ring you choose, we hope it's a true reflection of who you are.

Antique style wedding rings will copy the motifs that were popular during the antique periods from which they draw.Does the vintage style wedding ring you have your heart set on have something special about it? The most important thing to remember is that a wedding ring is meant to be forever. This is a ring you will be wearing every day for the rest of your life.
