Vintage Engagement Rings
An engagement ring is more than a piece of jewellery; it is a part of your love story. Just like your love story, it should reflect your uniqueness and romance. Often, it can be hard to find the perfect ring that truly represents your story. With new pieces of jewellery that are often mass-produced, it can be hard to find their character. However, with a vintage engagement ring, you get a symbol of your love that is often uniquely crafted, and that has the timeless beauty that never goes out of fashion.
Susannah Lovis specialises in Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco pieces that not only offer refined elegance and style but also from the precious metals and genuine gemstones that are used. However, these vintage engagement rings also offer something else; a unique history.
With a vintage engagement ring, your ring has character, a story and meaning that goes deeper than its aesthetic.
Why Choose A Vintage Engagement Ring?
Classic, timeless style: The beauty of vintage engagement rings is that their design has proven to stand the test of time. These stunning rings were designed by talented jewellers to make classically beautiful jewellery that looks as stylish now as it did when it was first made.
Historical Appreciation: There is an increased demand for clients who want their own slice of history with their jewellery. The idea of 'something old becoming something new' for brides is another nod heritage of marriage. When your ring has a history and a period style, it represents the love stories of a bygone era.
One Of A Kind: Often, vintage jewellery was lovingly crafted by talented jewellers without any form of mass production. For people looking for individual and unique style, a vintage engagement ring is a fantastic way to have a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery. With each ring being unique, it's like your own wearable art piece.
Imaginative Style: There is a huge trend for Art Deco engagement rings dues to the stand-out style they provide. For individuals looking beyond the classic engagement ring, opting for a vintage option opens the door to a broader range of engagement ring styles that truly capture your personality.
Heirloom Pieces: We are in a heyday of celebrating vintage history. Investing in vintage jewellery not only means your pieces begin with a story, but they can also become a part of your story. Your vintage engagement ring may be something you can pass down from generation to generation. With an antique, you are giving an old story a new lease of life.
Unrivalled Quality: Another signification benefit of choosing a vintage engagement ring is for the quality of the materials. Compared to new jewellery, you are likely to find that vintage rings offer higher quality metals and gemstones. The bespoke craftsmanship and quality materials mean that vintage rings are after a labour of love and often with far bigger gemstones than you'll find in a high street retailer.

I had two string of pearls beautifully restrung. The clasp also needed mending - a difficult job done very skilfully (and it came back shinier than ever!) I highly recommend Susannah Lovis Jewellers because of the care and trouble they put into these repairs.
