I love all of these!  I absolutely adore antique and vintage jewelry!  I like to call it my hobby, (too bad DH doesn’t agree that jewelry collecting is a hobby).

I have quiet of few vintage pieces which my grandparents have given me over the years.  However I only have one picture on this computer.  This is an aquamarine set in rose gold.  It’s from the 1960s from the Soviet Union.  My greatgrandpa gave it to my grandma and she loaned it to me for the wedding as my something borrowed.  After the wedding she insisted I keep it.  I think it’s my favorite piece of vintage jewelry that I own.

My great-grandmother’s e-rings. The tiny dot in the center of the first ring was her original diamond, so tiny!

My grandmother’s original e-ring. She later had the stones reset in a new band.

…and my grandparents’ wedding bands

Here is mine, sorry about the bad quality pics (and my horrific nails). The stone is antique but the setting is new but in a vintage style so hopefully that counts anyway…

Sorry for the crappy camera phone pics!

This diamond cocktail ring was my mom’s. I ended up with it after she passed away .

Its about a carat total in a really ornate white gold setting. My dad gave it to her as part of a set in the late 60’s. Unfortunately, the earrings and necklace were stolen in a home invasion when I was younger.

I might wear it on my right hand when I get married as my “something old”, as well as in memory of my mom.

This is my grandmother’s engagement ring from the early 1940’s. I even got it in the original box. She gave it to me in front of Fiance the very first time she met him, two months after he and I started dating. He told me always assumed that she was telling me and him that it was time for me to get hitched and to use her ring, lol. I told him I can’t believe he didn’t run then.

@reine_de_rien: Your ring is stunning!  I love it!  Also, it totally looks like the ring I posted in the “if you had to choose another engagement ring what would it be” post.  🙂

@mrose017: Thanks! We went, and it was wonderful! A really nice saleslady named Caitlin. I think I found my dream ring online, though, all of the rings there were beautiful, but just didn’t compare, so I’m thinking we will go back there for wedding bands 🙂 Thanks!

I have 2 pieces, one is my e ring that we found in an antique store, it’s so delicate and beautiful! it’s completely perfect and i loe the thought that someone else had it and loved it too! the other is a ring my grandmother had made for her when she had too any diamond rings from several suitors! she wanted all the diamons in one piece.  None of the stones are the same size, but it all goes together well!
