Who has a ring they consider to have vintage elements, while having modern touches as well? I love that perfect balance between vintage and modern. Would love to see pictures if you have something mixed like that 🙂
Mine has the vintage look with the double halo and filigree in the basket. I changed the shank to a straight one to keep the look modern (it was tapered originally). My wedding band has a vintage textured profile but with its straight lines, as opposed to scrolls, it remains modern. No milgrain also keeps the look modern (but I love milgrain!) The prong-setting is modern.
Show me yours! 🙂

I’d love to add the choics of classic, niether vintage nor modern. I’m not necessarily a vintage girl (I think of Tacori as a designer and of halo settings and actual antique/vintage rings,etc.) nor a modern girl (I think of Johnathan Atencio as a designer and of a chunkier band, a tension setting or a split shank, etc.) but rather a classic, timeless girl (I think of Harry Winston as a designer and a pave band and a solitare, or a simple solitare setting, etc). Though I suppose if I had to pick from the listed categories, I would pick vintage, as I have a Tacori setting, but mine is a simple solitate with pave shoulders, a pave shank and pave diamonds on the prongs (which feels more classic to me).

Mine was definately art deco inspired, but the bezel setting is definately modern!

@MrsT2009: True, classic is a whole other style. Thank you for your contribution! 🙂

I’m not sure if mine qualifies, bur I think it has a bit of a vintage feel with a modern edge (micropave).

Mine feels vintage inspired to me! I was drawn to that style the whole time we were looking for rings!

@CupcakeLove: There is that pear again! 🙂
I was told that my ring was vintage but modern with the two bands etc. Who knows, never really thought about it.

@TheFutureMrsNguyen: Gorgeous! Really like the two bands around your e-ring.
Treejewel19: I see the mix of vintage and modern for sure. The bands make it more modern. Impressive set!
