Alternative affordable engagement rings

Although I love my engagement ring, if I could do it all over again I would probably choose a ring that’s a lot less expensive and use the money somewhere else, like paying off the mortgage.

Antique Art Deco Engagement Ring

My boyfriend, now fiance, of 6 years proposed to me last December before Christmas. He gave me a beautiful Art Deco platinum diamond ring from the 1920s. The diamonds are Old European cut, with a larger one in the centre, two smaller ones positioned north and south, surrounded by 15 tiny diamonds. What I love most about it is the unique shape, the intricate lines, the chunky cut diamonds, and the miligrain. The ring has so much character and I absolutely love it!

Dainty Antique Art Deco Rings

Dainty rings look so lovely and feminine on the finger. However, dainty antique rings are even more exquisite to look at. Many are made up of diamonds and/or coloured stones, a thin yellow gold band, and an interesting milgrain platinum setting. The intricate designs and hand cut stones make the rings unique in their own way. Below are a number of dainty antique art deco rings from Esty that I love!
