@CAgredo:  Here are some of mine! A couple are true antiques and the rest are vintage, but I thought they would be appreciated! I have a couple of others that are not pictured.

Top left: two tone yellow/white gold engagement ring. No idea the era, but has an oec/transitional cut diamond. The diamond band was listed as 1930s, 14k white gold, with two single cut diamonds and 3 old mine cut/OEC.

Top right: thinking mid-century with transitional cut diamond, one of my favorite rings. Lower color and probably not great clarity, but lots of personality.

Middle left: I almost always wear this ring. Platinum with inner sleeve of 22k yellow gold, dated to 1913 (I don’t remember month and date).

Middle right: 5 photos of my various old cut diamonds. (The “top right” mid century ring is top left in this collage, and the “top left” two tone OEC/transitional is the bottom right of this collage.)

Bottom left: the plain band is an 18k white gold Belais band dated August 20, 1927 (August 20 is our first date anniversary). The diamond band I really have no clue. I purchased it with the engagement ring from the “top right” photo as part of an eBay listing. They don’t really go together in terms of style so I’m not sure and I don’t know a lot to make a guess.

Bottom right: band is two tone yellow/white gold with single cut diamonds and some really pretty details. Absolutely no idea if it’s a true antique or simply vintage. The engagement ring (bottom middle of the collage) is an OEC I believe (I’m still learning on these old cuts!) with single cut diamond accents. I think this ring is also two tone, but I don’t remember for sure. It has an engraving on the inside but the ring has been resized and worn down that I can’t tell what the date is sadly. Middle finger ring (top right of the collage) is a teeny old mine cut diamond set in the most beautiful rose gold. 

 

All of these rings were eBay, etsy, and pawn shop purchases so I have no back story and really no concrete information (apart from the 1913 and 1927 bands) on them!

I have 2 antique rings and then the diamond in my e-ring is antique but the ring itself is just “inspired” by antique.

This was my grandmother’s that was given to me, 1 carat transitional “I” color

 

This i bought as a right hand ring, I am replacing the emerald with my grandmother’s diamond (its at the restoration jeweler right now)

Drooling over all these gorgeous rings!

Both diamonds are antique OECs, the settings are not their original settings. First one is 1.15ct K SI1, second is 0.80ct O/P VS1
