“Something old, something new” –that’s the first part of the essential ritual for brides, and we at GMG Jewellers think that this classic saying can inspire the brides-to-be of today when it comes to their engagement ring choices.
Today, we’ve chosen three distinct engagement rings that, in our opinion, distill the best of vintage-inspired design into truly special engagement rings for any dreamy-eyed bride.
Ring #1: Michael M Defined Collection Engagement Ring
Extremely on-trend right now, rose gold rings have a history that that stretches back to the 19th century when it was a signature metal amongst royalty. We chose this brilliant piece from the Defined Collection by Michael M (model #R725-2) because of its 18-karat rose gold that perfectly encapsulates a high level of vintage beauty.
The asscher cut diamond - another prominent feature of 19th-century jewellery - is a classic cut which continues to fascinate brides thanks to its complex inner pattern of triangles. This asscher stone, paired with 0.44 carat of round-cut side diamonds, makes this Michael M engagement ring the perfect blend of “classical” and “modern.”
Ring #2: Coast Diamond Hand Engraved Collection Engagement Ring
During the turn of the century, inspired by the fashions of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, engagement rings started to become covered with intricate engraving and scrollwork style detailing. Subtle, yet significant, these sort of delicate embellishments are a fabulous way to bring an effortless elegance to any designer piece.
Available now at GMG Jewellers, this piece from Coast Diamond’s Hand Engraved Collection (model #LP2215) continues this tradition in the most dazzling way possible. This emerald cut diamond engagement ring is flanked by additional trapezoid cut diamonds, and features distinctive milgrain patterns, and engraving along the inside of the band itself.
For an added touch of class, the scrollwork that Coast Diamond utilized in this ring is made with 14-karat yellow gold that gorgeously contrasts the 14-karat white gold used in the body of this emerald-cut diamond engagement ring.
Ring #3: Tacori RoyalT Collection Engagement Ring
Platinum and cushion-cut diamonds are two further hallmarks of the 19th century. Since platinum was first utilized, it has sparked a craze has lasted until today—and we at GMG Jewellers think its pale-greyish silver colour is unique enough to charm any bride.
The Tacori RoyalT (model #HT2612CU10X8) comes in 18-karat yellow gold and rose gold variants, but we want to throw a spotlight on the 925 platinum version of this Tacori masterpiece. The 1.47 carats of side diamonds, cradled in an absolutely royal nest of filigrees and engraving, catch every ray of light in the room, and channel them through a center cushion cut diamond.
