Perhaps it was the craze on peasant blouses and Victorian accessories or the fact that the bohemian look made a lot of Hollywood stars shine in the catwalk, perhaps it is just the economic hard times that prompted people to delve old clothes in thrift shops, but whatever or whoever started the Vintage craze is not important... just that it is here to stay for a couple more years.
Vintage influence cannot only be seen in the clothes that people wear today but also in the accessories that they choose. From lacy necklaces to Victorian bracelets, there seems to be a lot of old stuff being worn around the city. With the current craze still in its peak, it is no wonder that a lot of women are looking for diamond rings with a vintage feel in it.
Vintage diamond rings are all the rage in the country especially for young brides who have chosen a vintage styled wedding gown and a celebration to match. Finding vintage diamond rings however is not exactly easy as diamond rings are not exactly sold in thrift shops or even in garage sales all that often.
In fact, most vintage diamond rings are those that are passed on from one generation to the other. Rarely are they sold outside the family except in extraordinary cases. Before you embark on your ultimate search for the vintage diamond ring, better ask your mom first. She might have an old diamond ring sitting on her jewelry box. Ask her if she can pass it on to you for your wedding.
Another place where vintage rings may be bought is on eBay where old vintage stuff are up for bids. Be prepared in terms of your budget as you may be paying more for something than what you should really pay for. This however can be pretty expensive especially to the average buyer who just wants to have a vintage diamond ring for a wedding and not really for a collection.
One can also buy faux vintage stuff in jewelry stores nowadays. Of course, this is not really vintage but if you can't find any place to buy the jewelry, you don't have any choice. Some jewelry stores, in response to the growing demand for the design, create styles that embrace the vintage feel. Settings are done in finishes that make the diamond ring look old. Designs of jewelry in olden times are also copied.
