First and foremost is the pristine craftsmanship. Mountings from the early 20th century used meticulous processes to be fabricated with diligent attention to detail. Production of engagement rings was far lower than it is today, so each was crafted with care, often with hand-engraved elements with meaningful symbolism.

Secondly, are the materials used. Edwardian and Art Deco mountings are generally crafted in platinum. This precious metal is astoundingly durable and holds fine details much better than other metals. It is resistant to detrition making it a choice medium for everyday wear and will survive for generations to come.

Another bonus of purchasing estate pieces is its environmentally friendly component. Antique materials were mined during the 19th century and do not contribute to the impact of the mining we have today. As we stated before, since these pieces are well-crafted, they are far less likely to break down and need replacing.

And finally, we can’t ignore how each engagement ring from this time is a rare one-of-a-kind piece. Edwardian designs are ornate, decorated with ribbons and florals while Art Deco rings have enticingly balanced geometric designs. Imitations pale in comparison to the expert craftsmanship and fineness of previous masters.
