This is my 1910’s sapphire ring, hand made by Engelbert Cornelius Ostby, a jeweler who died on the Titanic. It has his personal maker’s mark.

Yesssssss antique rings are my recent obsession haha All the ones shared some far are amazing! 

I have a red spinel ring from around 1920 that I purchased from Etsy. The filigree details had me swooning! It came from an estate sale down in Louisiana, and the woman who owned it lived in a very old plantation house near the bayou. That’s all I know about it!

Yay! I love antique ring threads. Your rings are so special and different!! 

I sell antique jewelry and I came across this beauty on another seller’s Etsy shop and I fell in love with it so much I had to show it to my boyfriend at the time, just a little inspiration for him… Apparently he fell in love with it too and about 6 months later he proposed with it! 

It’s an early 20th century trilogy ring from the UK with three old mine cut diamonds in 18ct and platinum. I don’t know much about the personal history of it but I like to imagine it was just as special to another pair of lovers in the past 🙂

Oh, plus I meant to mention but posted too fast… I love antique rings. My mum’s engagement ring is antique – probably early to mid 1800s.

It’s such a beautiful ring, it’s very similar to this, but hers is more delicate, and the rubies and pearls are the same size:

antique stones have such beautiful colours, and I love the idea that someone wore that ring for their whole married life before it was given to my mum, and now she’s worn it for her marriage of over 50 years!

I inherited these rings from my great aunt many years ago, but just recently had them resized! I love them so much and I’ve always wanted to wear them 🙂 I am not sure what the stones are, I think they are either pink sapphires or rubies. The jeweler told me they are genuine gemstones and think they are pink tourmalines or pink topaz.

E1E883D2-8363-493B-8848-840B2FAE92F0^^ above, my edwardian platinum diamond ring. Centre stone cant be the original as is a transitional cut diamond which is a shame, but at least still a vintage cut. Centre stone is 0.50 ct. 

 

Lastly, this art-deco beauty which I recieved as a christmas/anniversary gift from my husband a few years ago. Centre stone is somewhere between 0.40-0.50 ct.
