The big screen has recently brought back all the things we love about old world glam and vintage-inspired jewelry. Popular shows and films featuring queens, princesses, and ladies of the manor covered in diamonds and ornate jewelry, have us dreaming of all things vintage. If you’ve watched The Crown or Downton Abby, then you know exactly what we mean! But, we are not the only ones swooning over the intricate charm that history has bestowed upon us, soon to be brides have made it clear that vintage engagement rings are secretly on the wish-list for the upcoming engagement season.
Naturally, as fans of all things beautiful (and glittery), we almost fell out of our chairs when we came across the gorgeousness that is Clean Origin’s collection of vintage engagement rings. We are talking awe-inspiring details, lace-like designs, and even diamond-covered bands that will have any future bride-to-be swooning. The settings are so utterly eye-catching that even Kate Winslet would approve of them.
With Clean Origin’s vintage selection, every sweeping scroll and loop is deep-rooted in history and inspired by a specific period. This year, brides are really loving the ornate essence brought on by the reign of Queen Victoria or Edwardian era rings. These beauties often feature intricate vine and leaf designs and feature a high setting that allows for maximum light to enter the stone. Think round elevated diamonds with blue sapphire halos or even bands dotted with opulent diamond baguettes dripping in magnificent decadence. If you still want a vintage feel without the old-world Victorian touch, you may fall into the Art-Deco era where statement pieces and geometric angles take center stage. Lovers of this era appreciate symmetry and triangular shapes like the ones portrayed in The Great Gatsby. Clean lines and large stones are also some of the most distinguishing features that make up the pieces from this era.
Aside from representing moments from the past, vintage rings bring on a feeling of romance by design. Can you think of anything more romantic than a raised radiant diamond surrounded by a sea of smaller diamonds? Neither can we. That’s why all the hopeless romantics at heart are obsessed with this love-inspired look and we wholeheartedly agree with every single one out there! Vintage rings have even made their way to the hands of Hollywood starlets like Jessica Biel, Scarlett Johansson, and Olivia Wilde to name a few. It’s easy to see why this style has achieved big-time celebrity status. Being an instant conversation starter, these rings are an easy choice for brides who don’t mind the limelight. This is not to say that vintage rings can’t exude understated elegance, but there will be no denying their ability to steal the show.
Sustainability and ethical practices are at the heart of what Clean Origin brings to the table. Purchasing one of their gorgeous rings goes hand in hand with what heirloom and traditional vintage jewelry represent. It means enjoying a beautiful vintage-inspired treasure on your hand every day, it means sleeping peacefully at night knowing that your lab-grown diamond was ethically sourced, and It also means having a treasured piece of your heart that you can pass on to the next generation to love and enjoy. We could go on and on about all the breathtaking etchings, raised settings, and unique hallmarks of vintage engagement rings but we have a better idea – hop on over to Clean Origin and see all the hand-candy for yourself!
