I was set on an antique ring (after loving my great-grandmother’s ring that I could not have) so we shopped for months looking for one, having lots of fun at antique stores along the way. We finally found this 1910-1920 ring at an antique fair. The details are hard to photograph without a good camera, but the triangle stones are sapphire, and between the sapphires are a leaf design. We’re getting bands made to match the engraving on the ring. I love antique/heirloom rings! Who else has one to share?

i’ve decided it’s hard to take good pictures of rings! my husband got mine at vintage jewelry store after i made a fuss about conflict-free diamonds. i love it! doesn’t work with any sort of wedding band whatsoever, but i don’t care.

@Miss Elephant: I think your ring is really eye-catching on your finger. Such an interesting and beautiful shape! Thanks for sharing.

Here is mine! I love it! Late 1920’s art deco ring, found at an antique shop in our neighborhood. It’s just about one of a kind, which I adore!

Yay! These are all beautiful! My husband and I searched for antique wedding bands too, but we wanted matching ones, and couldn’t find them. We did get his used, but mine is new. My e-ring is a 30s setting that originally held a diamond. The center stone had been sold, so we bought the setting and had a new sapphire set in it.

@BostonBrideToBe: Your ring is seriously beautiful! It is so classic and dainty, but with a little bit of personality. *sigh* Maybe I can have a beautiful antique ring for an anniversary….

@bakerysensei: & @Julefay: Thank you so much! I really, really adore it. It was one of those “very lucky” moments (that never happen to us!). I mean, gosh, who would have imagined that this random antique shop, that normally only has one or two engagment rings a month would have THE perfect ring for us? (And it was a good deal, it appraised SO much higher than he paid!)
