On Etsy, I would look at these sellers:

gildedlane (beautiful pieces…and Jocelyn is lovely)

vermaestatejewels

Gemfever

lovealwaysgalicia

Mbarrantiques

Manorjewels

lupinehillvintage

Thethingfinders

sincityfinds

zacharysjewelry

I browse all these sellers from time to time looking for my own must have vintage piece so I hope you find yours! I also follow gildedlane and manor jewels on instagram which is a great way to get dibs on new pieces before it hits etsy

You could also try the websites EraGem and Brilliant Earth – not cheap but they seem reputable for estate fine jewelry.

Butter Lane Antiques has a beautiful selection and great website – almost bought my ring from them! Lang Antiques is where I go to drool over things I can’t afford. The Three Graces has a great collection but a bit pricey as well. Antique Velvet Gloves has beautiful items at a great pricepoint. Jewels by Grace is a favorite of pretty much everyone.

My husband bought mine from an antique diamond dealer in the uk. 

Do you have similar around your area?  You could also look to antique jewellery fairs/auctions.

nycoleman :  Ivy and rose is also great, they sell both antique/vintage and reproductions, so just pay attention to the details listed!

I can help here, as I’m a bit of a art deco ring nerd. I would advise against buying antique rings on Brilliant Earth. They are extremely marked up and I know one bee who found out hers was a replica!

I bought mine on Etsy from GoldAdore. It’s a 1930s art deco ring by the famous jeweler Jabel. Gillian is an amazing seller who offers great deals (and layaway plans). I’ve bought two rings from her. This ring would have been twice or even three times as much on BE’s website. This band (also 1930s) is from another etsy seller, Addy’s Vintage – they are also great sellers!

nycoleman :  If you do a search on etsy, search for “art deco engagement ring” and make sure the “vintage” filter is on!

If you’re sick in bed and browsing, looking up #antiquering on instagram will usually lead you to a lot of cool antique jewelry dealers as well. I love my ring but it’s still so much fun to look!
