A vintage inspired wedding is the perfect theme for any art deco, literature or culture lover.

If you're thinking about proposing to the love of your life, or you're simply having a look for your perfect engagement ring, you should consider choosing a vintage inspired engagement ring. The vintage style engagement ring trend is one that doesn't seem to show any sign of slowing down or fading anytime soon. Whether you're after an authentic vintage engagement ring, or a diamond engagement ring with a design that's been inspired by decades gone by, your desired diamond ring won't ever go out of style. If you still need convincing, here are 12 reasons why you should choose a vintage style engagement ring.

What Makes an Engagement Ring Vintage?

A vintage piece of jewellery or engagement rings comes from an era that has passed within the last 50 to 100 years. However, the definition of vintage is looser than the definition of "antique",  because the term vintage is also used to describe a trend that was once popular in the past and is now making a comeback.

Because trends change, there's always a rotating style that is considered vintage. Alongside this, rings that would have fit into the vintage category a year ago may crossover to antique due to their age. Because of its age, vintage or antique jewellery often has much more wear and tear, which means that the jewels maybe loose and the metal might be tarnished or damaged, which is why many jewellers suggest that you should buy vintage inspired jewellery.
