And because we handpick only the prettiest diamonds from within each GIA grade, you’re guaranteed the most beautiful diamond for your money, whatever diamond grade you choose. We hold the same high quality standards for the accent stones in our custom engagement rings as we do for our center stones.

  • Which historical eras inspire vintage engagement rings?

    Our vintage and antique-style engagement rings are inspired by styles that were crafted from the mid-1800s to 1980. The expert team at Shane Co. designed our vintage-style engagement rings to reflect the most popular and gorgeous design elements from this time frame. Victorian-era engagement rings were referenced first. This era includes all of the rings that were created between 1837 and 1901. Victorian-era antique engagement rings were most popular for their halo settings and the use of yellow gold. Between 1901 and 1910, the Edwardian era popularized a new style of vintage floral engagement rings. These rings were cut in the shapes of flowers and started the trend of using platinum metal as the setting. After the Edwardian era came the time of vintage Art Deco engagement rings. From 1915 to the end of the 1930s, these symmetrical geometric rings, often with colored gemstones, reigned supreme. In the 1940s, also known as the retro era, white, yellow, and rose gold became the trendy new settings that we still see today. The mid-century era came next. From the early 1950s to the 1980s, bold, show-stopping rings and diamond stones were the style. Each of these design elements is reflected in Shane Co.’s collection of vintage engagement rings.

  • How much do vintage-style engagement rings cost?

    Vintage engagement rings are an ideal choice for those with any budget. Because you can personalize any ring with a hand-selected stone and setting, the cost of a vintage-style engagement ring can depend on your preferences. Shane Co. works with budgets that range from less than $1,000 to over $15,000 so you can find your perfect vintage style engagement ring. Please contact the Shane Co. team if you would like to learn more about our pricing and your options.

  • How should I evaluate vintage-style engagement rings?

    As with all diamond engagement rings, vintage-style engagement rings can be evaluated based on the 4Cs: cut, color, clarity, and carat. Learn more about the 4Cs by visiting our education page. All of Shane Co.’s rings and settings are evaluated to meet our highest standards of quality and craftsmanship.

  • Does Shane Co. offer modern engagement rings?

    Yes. From infinity engagement rings that symbolize your never-ending love to swirl engagement rings made of intertwined bands of 14k gold or platinum, Shane Co. offers every style imaginable for every budget.

  • Would vintage engagement rings be a good match for fancy-cut diamonds?

    Vintage-style engagement rings frequently feature fancy diamond shapes such as emerald, marquise, pear, oval, and others, since those vintage time periods didn’t feature round diamonds as the center stone.

  • Is a diamond or colored gemstone used for antique-style engagement rings?

    Both diamonds and colored gemstones can be used for antique-style engagement rings. However, it is common to see antique rings featuring colored gemstones like sapphire, emerald, or ruby as the center stone, rather than diamonds.
