I adore rings.
I don’t wear much jewelry and most of the time if I do have any jewelry on it is one of my rings. I’m pretty picky about my jewelry, I like to wait and find just the right piece before I’ll spend any money.
I’ve been ring shopping lately. But I’ve come to the conclusion that not just any ring will do. I could go to a lot of places and find pretty, new, rings with some vintage flair. But I want an antique. I love vintage settings and I want the real deal.
I don’t wear much jewelry anyway, so why not go all out and get exactly what I want, right? It will require some patience though, because unlike new rings I can’t just ask if they have my size available, I have to find the right ring and hope it fits. I’ve already gone through heartbreak with a beautiful amethyst ring that I loved but didn’t fit.
I’ve been keeping an eye on rings at estate sales and antique shops, but I’ve also been “shopping” on Pinterest.
Have I mentioned lately that Pinterest has taken over my life?
I’m pretty sure not all of the rings I’ve found on Pinterest are vintage/antique, but they sure are pretty. Anyway, what I’ve found on Pinterest is just to beautiful not to share, so here’s a short list of some of the gorgeous rings I’ve found lately.
This ring was sold at this Etsy shop, which has tons of beautiful pieces, including a whole section of vintage jewelry from the 20’s and 30’s.
I’ve always like the idea of having an engagement ring that was something other than diamond, but if I were to have a diamond engagement ring, I would want something like one of these. Just sayin’.
Hopefully, I’ll find something before too long. But in the mean time I’ll probably just keep pinning rings.
If only pinning things magically made them appear in your closet…
