We had so much fun hearing from so many of y’all who are recently engaged on Instagram a few weeks ago! Since we expect there to be quite a few more proposals coming up with Valentine’s Day around the corner, what better time to share a little antique and vintage engagement ring inspiration? EraGem is an amazing source for estate rings, ranging from intricate vintage pieces to more modern options. There’s something for every bride, and I had fun picking out just a few of my favorites to share with y’all today!

EraGem recently added a page to their website that makes it super easy to find pre-owned modern diamond rings. These estate pieces are not only completely gorgeous, they’re also an eco-friendly option, since no new mining or refining is necessary when you purchase a ring that’s been previously loved.

We can’t wait to hear from new brides-to-be who get engaged on Valentine’s Day! These ruby and pink sapphire rings EraGem carries are so unique and lovely, and would seem extra appropriate given on February 14, don’t you think?

Thanks to a certain princess we all know and love, sapphire engagement rings have found a permanent place on the list of classic ring styles. Sapphires have actually been used as engagement rings since the Victorian era, so EraGem carries some stunning vintage pieces that date back to the 1880’s!

EraGem’s newly redesigned website is incredibly easy to use, and to make sure you love your ring in person as much as you do online, they offer a 60-day money back guarantee, free overnight shipping and returns, and a lifetime warrantee. If you find yourself in the Seattle area, you can also visit their new showroom!

What are your favorite rings from this selection? I can’t stop staring at the oval pink sapphire (top left)!

This post is brought to you by EraGem–thanks for your support of the brands that make Southern Weddings possible!

    As y’all probably already know (especially if you read this post!), estate diamonds and passed-down engagement rings are fairly common here in the South. Alas, not all of us are lucky enough to have precious heirloom baubles already in our families, which is why we love today’s sponsor, EraGem Estate Jewelry! If you’re hoping that your ring might one day become a family heirloom, it makes perfect sense to search for “the one” among vintage engagement rings, and EraGem has plenty of gorgeous options from which to choose.

    I love that antique engagement rings already come with a story. Doesn’t that seem so Southern? I think there’s something really beautiful about wearing a ring that both symbolizes your future and has so much history.

    I ALSO love these gorgeous colored numbers! EraGem’s selection of sapphire engagement rings is stunning, and if you’ve ever wanted to make like Kate, this would be the place to start your search.

    Besides beautiful rings, EraGem has the back-end details down to a science, too: free shipping, and a full 60-day money back guarantee. Additionally, something that would set my mind at ease is that all of the photos on their site (and in this post) were taken by the owners, Michael and Weston, and are of the actual items for sale. They are also great with customer service via phone or email!

    What do you think, ladies? Would you wear a vintage engagement ring? Is your engagement ring vintage?

      I would definitely wear a vintage ring! Receiving a gorgeous ring with so much history and meaning behind it would be awesome. Besides who wouldn’t want that amazing 4 carat yellow diamond engagement ring above??!!

        Emily: Hi, This has nothing to do with this string, but I have a question about another piece you wrote titled: V4 Feature :: Polo Shoot

        I LOVE LOVE LOVE those bridesmaid dresses and I’m glad that you put the skirts as being Anne M Cramer, but what about the tops? I can’t find them. Any clue? Thanks! and Love what you do :)

        Hi Rebecca! Those tops are actually from Victoria’s Secret! Best of luck with your search!

      I LOVE that yellow cushion-cut diamond ring! I’d want that as a right-hand ring, definitely! I’m all for vintage jewelry and rock an antique engagement ring (my man’s mother’s, grandmother’s, AND great-grandmother’s engagement ring!)

      They’re all so gorgeous! I’m a little relieved that it is the guy’s job to choose, because I don’t think I could!

      I just got my engagement ring last week (!!!!!!!!!!!) and my favorite part about it is that the band is from the 1940’s. My sweet fiance spent months looking for the perfect band and then had it fitted for a diamond. I love that it was a part of someone else’s love story and now it’s a part of ours.

        Congratulations, Laura!!! I’m sure your ring is stunningly beautiful!
