Settings & Metals
While the value of a ring is mostly determined by the diamond, we have noticed that most women fall in love with a particular setting. The look and feel of a setting determines the ring’s “personality.” Engagement rings come in white and yellow gold and in platinum. The perfect ring for a lady’s hand is a matter of individual preference, skin tone, finger shape and lifestyle. Some rings have delicately swirling engraving, some have filigree, some have polished, hammered or matte finishes. There are so many variations and combinations and styles, most women have to try on at least 20 before they even start to identify their preferences. Even then we often see women fall in love with a ring that is totally different from what they thought they were looking.
Antique & Vintage Rings
There is nothing like the romance and refinement of an antique diamond ring. An antique ring can have a certain magic to it, that defies logic but can make your fingers tingle when you look at it.
Antiques are surprisingly inexpensive, considering their history and the remarkable quality of their craftsmanship. Come into the store to see our collection. We have great examples from many eras.
