Beauty never goes out of fashion

Our Vintage Engagement Rings may be inspired by designs that are a hundred years old, but their popularity has never waned with time - testimony to the enduring style and beauty of these stunning engagement rings.

Engagement rings from the Victorian period (1837-1901) were usually made in 18ct yellow gold and set with diamonds, rubies or sapphires. Designs were heavily influenced by discoveries of ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman treasures during this period, and early designs tended towards the large and more ornate, though later the fashion was for smaller and more delicate pieces.

During the Edwardian period (1901-1910) the use of platinum in engagement rings became particularly popular. Its high tensile strength allows very fine and extravagant settings to be created, while its white sheen highlights diamonds to excellent effect. Nonetheless, coloured gems experienced a resurgence in popularity during the Edwardian period, with sapphires often being used as the main gemstone for engagement rings, and small diamonds being used for decoration.

At Ingle & Rhode we specialise in creating beautiful engagement rings to each client's unique specifications. We can create your dream engagement ring in a choice of certified Fairtrade & Fairmined or recycled 18ct yellow gold, 18ct white gold, or platinum, and set it with stunning ethically-sourced diamonds and gemstones.

Please feel free to get in touch. We'd be delighted to answer any questions you may have.
