We love when someone considers purchasing an vintage or estate engagement ring! Not only do these rings often come with a fantastic price tag, but most of them are unique and one-of-a-kind designs. You'll own a piece of history that will be truly different than every other mass produced ring out there.
Estate and vintage engagement rings are also an eco friendly and ethical choice. You would be contributing to a reduction in diamond mining and would be socially responsible with your purchase. It's a great way to recycle a product and give it a new home.
Learning About Estate Engagement Rings
Estate engagement rings often tell a story depending on which era they originate from. Rings from eras like the Victorian Era and Edwardian Era all have their own unique set of features that represent available technology and materials at the time.

Where To Purchase Estate Engagement Rings
You can find small collections of estate engagement rings in local vintage shops; however, the quality of these rings and authenticity can be unknown. You want to look for a reputable jeweler who stands by the quality of their jewelry and only accepts high quality pieces to add to their collection. They should offer a money back guarantee and be completely transparent about their product.
Long's, for example, has an extensive collection with hundreds of estate engagement rings in-store and online for purchase. We offer a 30 day money back guarantee along with free shipping. Plus, we've been around for over 135 years in the business with an incredible reputation in the New England area. It's one of the many reasons our estate engagement ring collection is so popular.
You also want to look at the quality of the vintage jewelry collection. Do they accept junk? At Long's, we have a certain quality standard with the estate jewelry we choose to sell. It must be in like-new condition. Make sure you are looking for this when you go to buy the ring.
