These are my mom’s rings. She and my dad will be celebrating their 64th wedding anniversary in December. I did the math, and that means they got married in 1956. I think they were engaged for 1 or 2 years before they got married. So her rings are from around 1954-1955.
And this is my engagement ring, which (I think) almost qualifies as “vintage” at this point — ha, ha. We got engaged in 1992. (Not my original/actual wedding band in the photo.)

My mum’s ring and mine. She was engaged in the early 90s but unfortunately that ring (a yellow gold solitair with some cool swirly meyalwork, no clue how to really describe it) got stolen so she got this replacement in the early 2000s.

This was my grandmother’s wedding ring set from the early 90’s. She got this ring after she lost the diamond out of her original ring. I recently inherited it. I now have my wedding set, my great grandmother’s diamond from her engagement ring, and my grandmother’s wedding set. I might do something with the diamonds in the future, but I’m not sure what to do yet. The diamonds aren’t all that similar and I’m not sure they would look that good together in a 3-stone ring.

My mom got engaged in the mid 1960s. I don’t have a photo of her ring, but it was a white gold solitaire. Fairly similar to the classic Tiffany solitaire, but I know hers wasn’t a Tiffany. Her original setting had 4 prongs but she switched to a 6 prong setting after her diamond fell out due to a broken/wobbly prong. I think her original diamond was around .75 ct.

My first ring from my HS boyfriend ( circa 1987) was a yellow gold .25 c.t cluster ring. Second ring from 1st husband ( 1996) was a swirly yellow gold with a small pair of white gold hearts. .15 total with the main diamond being .10 and two small .025 diamonds on either side. Our ” upgrade” was a swirly set .25 ct round brilliant solitaire. Third ring was from second husband, 2005, a 3 stone princess cut .50 ct center with .25 c.f. Blue sapphire sides set in white gold with a trellis setting. We had hard times, so I returned the ring back to the jeweler. We downgraded some 6 months later, a lab white cushion sapphire with lab blue cushion sides in white gold. Now, this amazing third husband of mine, had given me a rose gold round H&A missanite set in a bezel 6 months after we married ( 2015) We recently upgraded to my diamond halo with an asscher cut green emerald center (2020)A long journey of sparklies in my life. 🙂

this is so pretty, and seems to be from a similar time as my mum’s! I love how rubies from that time were such a soft dark pink – much more than the created ones from today.

thank you! They are not most people’s taste, so it’s nice to have a fan. I have some more normal size rings too. 😁

My ering was made from my late Mother-In-Law set. It was very 80s in lots of heavy yellow gold. I didn’t mind keeping it as is but DH wanted me to make it my own.
