Is a Vintage or Antique Wedding Ring Right for You?
Maybe you're considering an antique or vintage wedding ring but you're not sure it's
the right choice for you. Will you love your wedding ring as much a year from now, 10
years, even 50 years down the road as you do right now? To be sure,
tastes change over time, but certain aspects of your personality
probably won't. Here are 7 questions
to help you determine if a vintage wedding ring or antique wedding ring is the right choice.
Question #1: Do you have a high regard for the environment and hold it
dear? If your answer is yes, every time you look at your vintage or antique wedding
ring, you'll know that your
choice contributed in every way possible to protecting the world around
you. No additional mining or manufacturing processes went into making
your wedding ring, so no additional impact is being made on the earth by
you wearing it. You are not a contributing factor to ecological harm.
Wear your vintage or antique wedding ring proudly.
Question #2: Are tasks that are hard on the hands, like gardening, dish
washing or weight lifting, something you engage in only
rarely? Or if you participate in them more frequently, are you prepared
to take your wedding ring off? Most vintage and antique wedding rings require special care.
They often have filigree, or are made with dainty details and tiny
stones held in place with delicate prongs.
If you want
your vintage or antique wedding ring to last a lifetime be prepared to treat it
like the precious heirloom it is.
Question #3: Is your wedding band the only ring you plan on wearing?
Vintage and antique wedding rings were designed to make a statement. They are often showcased
as standalone jewelry pieces. That's not to say
you can't pair one with a vintage engagement ring or that you can't move your vintage engagement
ring to your right hand after the wedding ceremony.
Question #4: Vintage wedding
rings are usually sizeable. A good rule of thumb is not to purchase one that
is more than two sizes above or below your own size without first consulting with a Master
Jeweler regarding resizing. Don't give up if you your finger is
very big or very small; part of the fun is the treasure hunt to find the perfect antique
wedding ring for you.
Question #5: Are you more concerned with the wow factor than the diamond or
gemstone specifics? The old style cuts of the stones found in antique
wedding rings have an appeal that is completely different from today's
modern-day cuts. If carat weight and clarity are your main concerns then
an antique wedding ring may not be your best option. However, if a
one-of-a-kind flair is more your style, you may just find exactly what
you're seeking in an antique wedding ring.
Question #6: Are you more about setting your own trends than following
the lead of others? If you pride yourself on your individuality and
don't take your cues from the fickle world of fashion, then an antique or vintage
wedding ring is likely to give you the unique appeal you're seeking for
years to come. Unlike what's current today, your ring won't be tired and
Question #7: Do you want your wedding ring to be alive with soul? An
antique wedding ring has a history to it. It has lived and breathed in
the past and the previous life it has experienced has been entrusted to
you. Take that responsibility sincerely. You are the guardian keeper of
