I found an antique. Well i think its antique. I think its a small victorian candle holder. Its silver and its shaped like a small bowl but it has two holders on the side with a celtic design on the holders. But inside the bowl its in-graved with a sort of woodcock or bird. Im not sure what make this is or whether its worth anything. etc. Does anyone have any ideas?? as not sure whether or not to just throw it away or sell it. well try and sell it.

Purchasing an Antique Diamond Ring Online

Antique diamond rings are now the coveted engagement rings of almost every woman who dreams of walking to the altar to wed her dream man, her soul mate. And you wonder why antique diamond rings are becoming more popular than contemporary designs?!

 

Antique diamond ring types

The best antique engagement ring is often made by hand, usually the handiwork of the best goldsmith or silversmith in town. Each curve and twist is intricately crafted and formed, each stone, painstakingly placed. Much hard work has been poured into the accomplishment of antique diamond rings that only those in the upper class were able to have one made. Here are several types of antique diamond rings made in the past hundred years, with those in the late 19th century supposedly being the best:

· Victorian Antique Diamond Engagement Rings

During the years 1835 to 1900, these antique diamond rings were made using rose gold or yellow gold. Their designs range from the most simple to the highly intricate ones. They often have set the diamonds in several rows, often with a mine cut or one extra bottom facet. Each design was meticulously shaped and made accordingly. Reminiscent of this era is the antique diamond solitaire ring of six prongs, set in a classic Tiffany design, which came out in 1886.

· Edwardian Antique Diamond Engagement Rings

In the early 20th century, between 1900 and 1930, with the introduction of oxyacetylene welding processes , antique engagement rings shifted to a platinum setting. Pierced shapes and lacy designs became the trend of most jewelers during this period. Fine filigree detailing was found on the markings of each ring, as well as scrollwork. Rose cut diamonds were the stones of choice.

· Art Deco Antique Diamond Engagement Rings

This period in history depicted a boom in discoveries in all fields. People were now concerned with exploration and discovery. Machines were now being introduced side by side with exoticism and jazz. Because of this, art deco antique style diamond rings became known for their smooth, polygonal look. Different cultures influenced its design, including Asian, Egyptian, and American. The early art deco designs of antique engagement rings were suggestive of the Edwardian era, but with a twist and style of their own. They added more oomph without losing the classic lines that has made it popular once again. This is in fact the most popular of all the antique diamond engagement rings.

Antique diamond engagement rings – getting engaged in classic style

Antique diamond engagement rings are those with the classic setting, signifying eternity, romance, reverence, and innocence. And, they often exude character and quiet elegance, giving a sense of history of those who first used that particular design. Was it designed for the engagement of a queen? Did it signify the undying love of a knight for his lady? It would be interesting to discover who was the first lucky bride to own such as ring, and certainly it would make it even more romantic.

When the time comes for your loved one to propose, you will want it to be a memorable event in your life. Opting for an antique diamond ring as your engagement ring can make the event even more memorable. Your loved one might propose at one of your popular hangouts, or in the park under the stars. Once he slips that engagement ring onto your finger, and those diamond stones sparkle in all their glory, it will become an event that you will remember forever.

You can also design your own antique diamond ring based on the different types of ring that were popular during different historical eras. The ring can be made according to your specifications, and what’s more, it can all be accomplished online: the design, commissioning a jewelry maker, and placing the final order.

A diamond ring is still the classic engagement ring that every woman loves. But an antique diamond ring has extra character, history, and elegance.
