By far the most important pieces of jewellery that most people will own are engagement and wedding rings. As a symbol of eternal love their simplicity reminds us of the moment they were given, the person who gave them and the memories we create around it. For a uniquely personal ring these are most often created in simple gold, white gold, platinum or a combination thereof.
For stones there are naturally many which can be used but diamonds and sapphires are among the most popular. Diamonds symbolise strength, love and health, while sapphires denote health and purity. Of course how such stones are used is down to the skill of the maker but by buying antique or vintage examples you are opening up the variety of designs quite considerably. And of course there is also the inner warmth of knowing that your ring was owned and loved by someone else in the past, that the moments of joy the ring was witness to before will also pass into your life as well.
At LoveAntiques we have a fine selection of Wedding and Engagement rings for all your needs.
