Stunning engagement rings added to Vintage Seekers' fine jewellery collection

Vintage Seekers' Fine Jewellery section has this week welcomed some new additions in the form of stunning vintage engagement rings.

A vintage ring given as an engagement ring has a meaning and stock behind it far deeper than simply a beautiful piece of jewellery.

Rich in history and romance, one can imagine the couples from times past who exchanged the rings before you; their love stories and the secrets behind it. Testament to the enduring nature of gemstones, vintage rings are symbolic of permanence and uniqueness - Two things any couple aspire to.
