Vintage Jewelry for Her, Him & Forever

vintage jewelry

 

Vintage-inspired jewelry personifies prestige and dignified grandeur. Whether the inspiration pulls from Victorian innocence, Edwardian romance or Art Deco opulence, contemporary antique-inspired designs merge chic timelessness with a subtle hint of modern splendor.

One advantage of a vintage-inspired design lies in the purity of the diamonds. Before the 21st century, most diamonds mined for the jewelry industry would qualify as conflict diamonds, also known as blood diamonds. Many true antiques contain unethically mined stones. However, all vintage-inspired pieces designed by Brilliance feature ethically-sourced, conflict-free diamonds.

When searching for a vintage design, discover first what time period speaks to your unique personal style. Victorian Era jewelry designs often feature floral motifs in yellow or rose gold. However, jewelry that pulls influence from the Edwardian time period incorporates bows, milgrain details and other intricate etchings. Authentic Edwardian elegance also means opting for platinum, which was the preferred metal of that particular age.

Brides and grooms whose style flaunts a sophisticated edge should gravitate to a more modern era, particularly the Art Deco period of the 1920s and 1930s. Extravagant and indulgent, Art Deco designs boldly stand apart from the demure Victorian designs and the romantic Edwardian details, often trending toward statement pieces with hints of architectural design. Art Deco engagement rings drip with the magnificence and prosperity of its age.
