Mine is 1930s vintage, and very plain.  NotFroofy inherited it from her grandmother back in Wales.  I managed to find NotFroofy a matching one, from the same era.

Today, I was given my great grandmothers wedding ring.  It is well over 100 years old, 18k gold, garnet center with green opal accents.  It is really unique and I can’t wait to wear it right hand ring-style on my big day!

Mine is FI’s grandmothers. It was made in 1952 by his grandfather.

My cousin bought a dresser from a thrift store recently and found a few vintage pieces hidden underneath one of the drawer bottoms! Nothing expensive but so cute. One piece was a short 14k gold choker necklace with two small intertwined hearts (she gave it to me). One of the rings she found looked like a piece from the 70’s. It was 925 silver with a solitaire topaz. The last was a woman’s gold band with a few small diamond chips and an art deco flair. Engraved on the inside was “14k-18k T.A.W. to A.G.H 1933.” I can only assume that it was a wedding band or a gift to a lover which I find so romantic!

I don’t have a picture right now, sorry! This picture is from google but the engraving is just like this but on a smaller scale.

This will be my engagement ring.  It was my great-grandmother’s ring.  Old European cut diamond in 18kt gold, about 100 years old.  Smile

Looks better and is more sparkly in person…my camera sucks lol.

A promise ring my grandpa gave my grandma over 60 years ago, before they got engaged.

I need to get better pictures, but I inherited these from my grandma:

 

Gold art-deco style ring with diamond (this was also my “something old” for my wedding)

 

White gold flowery/swirly ring with diamonds

@Cupcake2012: Thanks!  

There’s so much detail that my camera didn’t pick up.  It’s all milligrained filigree around the stone and then the band has scrolls and wheat engraved on it.  My grandmother found it in my grandpa’s side table years after his death (along with an illegal handgun and a bunch of other strange things she didn’t know he had lol) and I fell in love with it, so she gave it to me.  It was my grandpa’s mother’s engagement ring.

Here’s mine- 1920 art deco, old mine cushion with blue sapphires around.

I fell in love with the detail of all the antique rings!  Best recycling I have ever done!

I realize many of you have antique rings that have been passed down from family. I have been looking online at Fay Cullen, Lang, and others, but I really want to try some on, but I am wondering where I can find art deco/antique rings in New England, either in New Hampshire or near Burlington. I had asked in another post, but I’m thinking it might be better placed here. Any ideas?

this technially isn’t mine yet, but will be when he proposes sometime next year! it’s beautiful and unlike any other ring I found. it’s vintage from 1890 and has .94ct + 1.01ct assymetrical diamonds with wonderful detailing on the sides.

we found it at Single Stone Jewelers in Downtown LA Jewelry District…I can’t wait!!
