Why You Should Opt For A Vintage Engagement Ring

Are you preparing to pop the question? Consider going against the grain by opting for a vintage engagement ring. While conventional high-end options can be stunning, they often come with a significant price tag that may be more than you want to spend on a ring. Or perhaps your partner is hoping for a piece of jewelry that’s as unique as they are, and your run of the mill ring setting just won’t cut it. If you’re searching for a stunning ring befitting a romantic proposal, a vintage engagement ring could be all your other half has hoped for: beautiful, high-quality and a real bargain. Here are three reasons to go vintage with this important piece of jewelry.

Vintage jewelry can be one-of-a-kind

Searching for high-end jewelry can leave you feeling exhausted and uninspired.

A vintage engagement ring, however, provides you with a chance to own or gift a unique, one-of-a-kind piece. This is an amazing opportunity — chances are that you or your loved one will never find anyone else wearing a similar piece. This makes it that little bit more special. If you really want to make a statement, or offer your loved one something extra special, then you should consider going vintage or antique.

Vintage and antique jewelry really shows off how thoughtful you are. It requires far more time, effort and consideration to research and source vintage jewels than it does to pop into your high-street chain jewelers. Don’t you want to run that extra mile?

There’s a story behind each antique piece

It is very likely that any vintage engagement ring you buy has been handed down in many families and has had its own exciting story before making its way to you. Each individual item has been a part of somebody else’s life and has become a part of history. Because of this, it should have high sentimental value.

When searching for vintage pieces online at retailers like Berganza’s, you can often learn where the ring was made and get accompanying Gemmological Certification Services, when available. Authentic pieces are usually hard to source, but Berganza does the legwork for you. You can rest easy that these details are accurate and you are purchasing a genuine vintage piece of high value.

Stay within your budget with a vintage engagement ring

Vintage jewelry doesn’t have to cost the Earth. In fact, they are usually a lot cheaper than an engagement ring you might shop for in a traditional boutique Some people refuse to buy vintage or secondhand because they do not like the idea that somebody owned it before them. However, if you can get over this, then you could find yourself a real bargain.

Some pieces of antique jewelry may be imperfect, and require a little bit of work to perfect the diamond in the rough.  But there are many services nationwide that can polish and mend vintage pieces to make them good as new. This could be the ultimate choice for those working on a tight budget.
