28 Sep 2014
The classical, timeless elegance of certain design eras of times gone by is undeniable. It is no surprise, then, that demand for vintage style engagement and wedding rings continues to increase.
For those who are after a vintage style wedding ring, your sources of inspiration are endless. If you have already received a vintage inspired engagement ring then a vintage style wedding ring is the natural fit. Having a vintage inspired engagement ring is certainly not a prerequisite for owning a vintage style wedding ring. A trend that is becoming more and more popular is mixing styles. A vintage style wedding ring can make the perfect, contrasting set, mixing old with new, modern with classical. The added benefit to this is that your rings look great together and when worn on their own.
To create a vintage wedding ring you only need to look at the many different design eras throughout time. Flick through the pages of magazines or browse the internet for inspiration. With endless options available you will never be stuck for ideas.
When designing a vintage inspired wedding ring you will notice certain design features often mirror vintage engagement ring styles. Ancient techniques such as mill grain, hand engraving and filigree are common. These can be used to create beautifully delicate and intricate patterns that may or may not include small diamonds to add a little extra sparkle. Depending on what era throughout history you are drawing on for inspiration, you may also include coloured gemstones.
The most important thing to remember when custom making any piece of jewellery is that there are no rules! You should love your ring and it should be a true reflection of yourself!
