Vintage and antique engagement rings: our speciality

Choosing a vintage or antique engagement ring is a very personal affair. Anything can be an engagement ring, really, and these days the traditional left hand-right hand customs are hardly remembered.

Still, there are a few styles that most of our customer choose as engagement rings - later on paired with a plain gold wedding band or a gold band that is half or all around set with small diamonds.

The most classic option for an engagement ring is of course a single diamond gold ring called a solitaire. We always have many vintage and antique solitaire rings to choose from in all price categories.


A more sentimental option is a so-called "toi et moi" ring: a ring with two gemstones nestled side by side, symbolising the unity with your partner. In French, toi et moi means you and me. This style is a classic in antique and vintage jewellery, ever since Napoleon gave his fiancée, Joséphine one of these rings, with a diamond and a sapphire. (This ring auctioned for 730,000 euro in 2013!).
Another classic engagement ring style is the yellow or white gold ring set with a coloured gemstone and a diamond entourage. Princess Diana got an iconic oval blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds, we have all sorts of different ones in the shop. With tourmaline, emerald, sapphire or a diamond in the center and entourages of brilliant or old cut diamonds.

 We are happy to advise and help you pick the right ring for your future spouse. With 25+ years of experience in vintage and antique jewellery we can say that picking the right engagement ring for your person and your budget is our specialty.

Got it, now take me to engagement rings!
