Vintage Jewelry is a Girl’s Best Friend..

And so the song goes that “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend..” But, in MY reality, it goes, “Vintage Jewels are a girl’s best friend..” And as a vintage lover I’m sure you would agree! Check out some of the amazing jewels I found over the last couple of weeks!

Vintage Engagement Ring

What the Seller Says:

This is a beautiful Platinum and Diamond Engagement Ring from the Edwardian Period. It was such a romantic and carefree time (1901-1910) and the jewelry reflected that sentiment. Diamonds and platinum were all the rage, used in delicate floral inspired designs. Zoom in and enjoy!

This diamond was graded (as always at RiordanStudio) by a GIA Graduate Gemologist and Accredited Jewelry Professional.

Vintage Rose Ring


What the Seller Says:

This ring is done in the early Faberge style. It may also be part silver, as well as rose gold
This is a breathtaking ring. It is possibly as old as the 1700’s but perhaps the 1800’s
It’s set on rose gold, with 37 diamonds, one large, all the rest are white, bright, and stunners!!!

These diamonds are cut uniquely, maybe an ‘old style’ brilliant cut in very bright white, with the center one being rose-cut.

Vintage
Cocktail Ring

What the Seller Says:

A flapper-era cocktail ring set with a black glass cabochon and complemented with sparkling marcasites. The ring is set in pot metal, or “white metal,” which was a popular jewelry metal before WWII. The face of the ring is wide and showy with a classic Art Deco design. A ring of marcasites frames the black glass feature stone, with scalloped corners (also set with marcasite) adding another border to the setting. The stone itself is cabochon cut with a flat, open back. There are a couple of chips on one edge of the cabochon, as well as some light nicking on the dome, but the stone is absolutely secure (no wiggle) and the overall appearance is outstanding. There are no marcasites missing and the band of the ring is well-shaped.
