Vintage Style Wedding Bands That’ll Wow You

Vintage Style Wedding Bands

These days, there’s a lot less emphasis on the newest thing. At least, that seems to be the case with wedding rings. Because love and marriage are age-old concepts that date back thousands of years, vintage wedding bands can often remind us of the importance of that lifetime commitment. That’s especially true when you consider the high divorce rate in today’s society.

Vintage jewelry generally has become much more popular in the last few years. One reason for this is that many people are tired of the monolithic, plain, and even boring styles of modern jewelry. On the other hand, jewelry that mimics vintage and antique styles lets us enjoy something more unique. In the context of wedding jewelry, the right style can even remind us of marriages and our families that truly lasted forever.


Anyone can wear vintage wedding bands


It used to be that wedding rings that looked vintage probably were. Often, these wedding bands for women were passed down from one generation to the next. Perhaps a young man would give his fiancée a ring that his late aunt wore, or maybe his grandmother. Having her wear an heirloom not only saved money but also included her in the family history.

While some families have and continue to pass down their genuine antiques, this isn’t all possible. Additionally, many couples want a new ring that looks old but isn’t. Therefore, vintage-inspired diamond wedding bands have become very popular. Buying something that’s different from the latest designs adds authenticity and nostalgia to a ring choice.


Features of vintage-inspired wedding bands for women


As we mentioned above, many people choose a vintage-style ring because it’s different and beautiful. But what are the major features of these rings? The one thing all of them have in common is that they are styled according to a bygone era. However, when most of us think of vintage-inspired styles, we’re often thinking about filigree, Milgrain, scrollwork, and the geometric Art Deco vibes. Generally, a vintage-inspired ring will showcase high-quality craftsmanship and unique features.

How can you tell the difference between fake and real white gold?

The easiest way to know is by having a jeweler do a scratch test. However, real gold should always have a marking that indicates the gold purity. If you don’t see one and the ring is modern, it’s probably fake.

Is it possible to re-plate white gold jewelry?

Yes, it is. In fact, your local jeweler probably does it regularly.

Is white gold a durable gem?

White gold is a durable metal, but it is typically alloyed with other metals such as nickel or palladium to increase its strength and give it a whitish appearance. When used in jewelry, white gold is often coated with rhodium to enhance its whiteness and provide extra protection against wear and tear. However, like any material, white gold can be scratched or damaged over time, and its rhodium plating can wear off, revealing the metal underneath. To keep white gold jewelry looking its best, it is important to take care of it properly, such as by storing it safely and avoiding exposure to harsh chemicals.
