So I’ve seen a lot of massive diamonds on here, which are lovely but not my personal style. I’m not a flashy gal.
The things I wanted for my ring were that it be old (pre-1920s), have some beautiful band detail and have a great story! And I got all 3 of those things. The story comes from my Fiance secretly buying the ring online from an antique store I always drooled over from Brooklyn. They don’t ship to Canada, so he secretly flew to Brookyln with his brother for 1 day while I had gone o a shopping trip to Erie, PA. His brother is an amateur filmmaker so he shot video of their excursion and I have this awesome edited (with music) DVD of the whole thing. It’s perfect and something we can show our kids one day (minus all the swearing).
I’m sure there are a lot of ladies wearing interesting, antique or custom rings that speak to your personal style. I’d love to see them!
Here’s mine, it’s an Art Deco (1920s) mine cut with filigree. The photo is from the website, I can’t do it justice with my camera phone 🙂

lucygirl1: Definitely looks vintage! Love the diamond clusters
lolot: Both myself and my Fiance have either no reltionship with our families (me) or very small families (him) because I would’ve loved something passed down! Yours is lovely! I love the geometric shapes in art deco rings.

Zhabeego: Thank you!! I agree I like that there’s a story behind the ring and most likely a story I’ll never actually know but it’s cool to think of what it could possibly be or make up your own. Is a vintage ring something you want?
atreyu547: Yeah it really was a surprise! A great one. The video is hilarious.

I love my art deco ring as well. It’s so dainty and perfect, and I love the detailing from the profile. My boyfriend got me a second ring (also antique) with a bigger stone, but I have yet to wear it because this one it too perfect. What worries me though is the thought of losing it, as it’s truly irreplaceable.

artdeco: Lovely! I don’t have a ring to show, but I just wanted to interject that I used to work in retail in Erie, PA and I remember getting bus loads of Canadians on the weekends 😉

I love all of these rings ladies. Mine is not antique but it has that feel. I love how it looks like the stone is in a little crown.

mine is unique in that it is hand-made and there are no two exactly alike. i’ve never seen a Bee with my ring, but i met a girl on my honeymoon who had it with a halo added, which was crazy and hilarious!
FYI: these are stock photos, i’m too lazy to go dig up photos of my ring on my hand since the update deleted the bazillion photos i had uploaded over the course of my time as a Bee :/

Mine is from the 1930’s, I believe! We found it on Etsy. I’ve always wanted a vintage ring, and the fact that going antique kept our budget down a lot was a nice bonus! It’s hard to tell from the lighting in the picture, but the ring has both white and yellow gold (the band on it is yellow), which I was unsure about at first, but now I love the mixed metals.
