I think that ring is absolutely beautiful. I am also in love with vintage and art deco rings. I found my ring in a local jewelry shop and it is from 1936.  It is not traditional or classic, but I fell in love with it 2 years ago and still love it. I think if it makes your heart flutter and you smile just thinking about it then go for it. Just like finding your SO… you just know it’s right. Doesn’t matter if styles change, you will love your ring because it is something you love.

I love that kind of ring and had originally looked all over antique stores, and the Old Town Orange area for the “right” ring. I love seeing them, they are unique even when they are a similar style (ie edwardian with filligree, art deco). I say go for whatever draws your eye. For me, I could not decide because I loved them all! I ended up with a ring that was new, but evoked a classic vintage feel. It feels just right for me, and I still love looking at vintage/antique rings.

My engagement ring was from 1925 or so and I loved it! I like you helped my ex pick my ring out and the moment I saw it I knew it was the one. I knew I wanted an antique ring from the get go and since I had always been obsessed with my grandmothers wedding set I knew I wouldn’t fall out of love with it. Just go with your gut.

As long as a portion of the lower half of the band doesn’t have a ton of detail, you shouldn’t have trouble resising.

I don’t think your inspiration ring can be easily pigeonholed, it’s modern enough to escape the trendy/dated classification. Are you the type to flip/flop about styles? In my book, the more intricate the ring, the more time you spend gazing at it, mesmerized, lol.

That is pretty!  I don’t think it is too over the edge or too antiquey!  My Fi gave me his grandmothers ring circa 1940s? I love it.  It’s not very antique-y looking and I love that it has a little history behind it!

@MrsJazzy:  That is one of my FAVORITES from Lang’s. I wanted it so badly but it was out of budget!

That ring is gorgeous! IMO, I would never fall out of love with something like that because of its beauty and character. So unique!

I’ve got an antique ring (1940s Art Deco) and something like you’re looking at will age gracefully. Fashion is fleeting, style lasts for ever.

FWIW I generally am not drawn to antique / vintage / art deco rings and I think that ring is just AMAZING!  Even though I do like simpler designs (my halo is as ‘crazy’ as I can go, and even it’s more than I expected to like) I would wear that baby in a heartbeat!!  I think that even if your tastes do change, you’d always love that one.  Good luck!!

That is a gorgeous ring!  I gasped when I saw it.  Wouldn’t have known that was an antique just by looking at it – which I think it’s a good thing, because it’s stood the test of time.  I don’t think you’d regret it – that’s BEAUTIFUL.

I wear my grandmother’s art deco 1930’s engagement ring and I like it more now than when I first saw it- and I liked it when I saw it.  If it speaks to your heart, that won’t change.

I don’t think you will fall out of love with it, but I would try to figure out what wedding band you would wear with it because that can be difficult with more intricate designs. I’ve seen people on here have ring regret not because they don’t love it, but because they have trouble finding the right wedding band to wear with it.
