Vintage Style Diamond Engagement Rings to Make Her Heart Melt

So you have made the decision to finally ask her to marry you, and you are looking for that one special diamond ring that you know will make her cry with joy... or perhaps you have been searching for that ring, you know, the one that is going to get you major, major points?? OK, on a more serious note, you have probably landed on this page because you have been on the lookout for a distinctive, rare, diamond engagement ring, right?

Great! You definitely landed on the correct page - here you will find a review of beautifully designed, vintage inspired diamond engagement rings available for immediate purchase...

Diamond Ring Prices ~ Two Very Important Points to Remember

Its difficult to decide what the correct price range is when investing in an engagement ring, purely because you want to get the most exquisitely flawless ring, but you cant afford to blow your entire savings on it. The ring is an outward sign of the couples' commitment, so it catches the attention of friends, family & strangers alike. Although there are very definite exceptions, most men tend not to worry as much about the design of the ring, but instead focus more on the price & the fiance-to-be's reaction to the proposal, and by extension, the ring itself.

Women (again, there will always be exceptions) on the other hand, would place the design, price, and uniqueness of the ring simultaneously at the top of the list. Personally, this makes perfect sense to me, as the woman has to actually wear the ring day in day out, so why shouldn't she be very, very selective?

So, keeping this in mind, when you are deciding how much you should spend on the ring, you should take into account a few very important factors. Firstly, what is your budget? Thinking of a price range without knowing what your budget is, is like going to a restaurant and deciding what to eat without taking into consideration how much money you actually have in your pocket. Work with your budget, be firm & don't worry about how low you may feel your budget is, there is always going to be a rare find you can bag, if you look hard enough, for long enough.

Secondly, you need to consider your fiance. This sounds obvious, but a lot of men miss this point when shopping around for engagement rings. If your wife-to-be has demure tastes, and you buy a big ring, with a big diamond, making a big statement, you may not receive quite the response you hope to get. On a similar note, if your partner is very outgoing and adores big, opulent pieces, & you end up buying a exquisite, but toned down ring, you might be a little underwhelmed by her reaction. So the trick is to really take your wife-to-be's personal taste into consideration when making your final choice. It will definitely be worth it, trust me!

So without further ado, you can browse through the diamond rings & see if any of them catch your eye, fit your budget & are likely to elicit the exact response you would love to see from your future wife....

0.50 carat Princess-cut Diamond | $399 - Antique-Style Hand Engraved 0.50 ct Diamond Engagement Ring

If you are looking for a timeless, intricately hand engraved, diamond ring for under $400, this is definitely one you should be considering seriously. The antique feel of the ring, the 10 exquisitely placed, brilliant cut diamonds & the 0.25 carat princess-cut diamond in the centre all really accentuate each other - the result is a 14k solid white gold ring with glistening, natural diamonds that any girl would love to have.

It is easily resizable & definitely a great find at just $399.

0.75 carat Round Diamond | $699 - Brilliant Vintage-inspired 0.75ct Pave Halo Round-Cut Diamond Engagement Ring Set

This is one of the most ravishingly gorgeous engagement ring sets I have come across for under $700. The 0.38 carat brilliant-cut, round center diamond is surely eye catching, and is generously surrounded by 49 twinkling natural diamonds set in 14k white gold. An important point to mention about this set is that the diamonds have a 'Minimum Colour' rating of G-H which in layman's terms means that the diamonds are almost colourless, one colour grade away from the very rare diamonds.

The bejeweled accompanying diamond ring is the perfect match, and at $699 for 0.75 carat natural diamonds, it is clearly well worth the price.

1.04 carat Diamond | $799 - 1.04 ct Vintage Diamond 3 Stone Engagement Ring

I absolutely adore this particular ring design. The circular setting. The detail in the way the smaller stones frame the bigger diamonds - it really lends a royal feel to this engagement ring. If you are looking to turn heads, if your lady is one that loves the finer things in life, or if you just know this is the one, then don't hesitate - this 53 stone ring really ticks all the right boxes.

The main diamond is 0.41 carat, with the two side diamonds coming in at 0.07 carats each. All the diamonds are set in 14k white gold, & the overall effect of the shapes in the design, the transparency of the diamonds & the unique vintage style of the ring makes this a surefire hit with your partner & practically everyone else that might see it!

Again, the diamonds have a 'Minimum Colour' grade of G-H, which ensures that they are relatively colourless, with no distracting discolourations. At $799, this is almost at risk of being underpriced!

1.0 carat Round Diamond | $799 - 1.00 ct Round Diamond Vintage Curve Engagement Ring

This sparkling engagement 2 ring set is quite simply drop dead gorgeous. It features a whopping 121 diamonds, weighing 1 carat in total, all of them being natural.

If you are looking for a unique, rare set that you are unlikely to find in mainstream stores, this is certainly fitting the criteria.

Priced at $799, it is a little on the expensive side, but the sheer opulence of the design, the number of diamonds arranged in the ring & the way it immediately captivates you makes this undoubtedly worth the amount.

Wow! This bridal ring set features a 0.33 carat round-cut natural diamond surrounded by 72 (yes you read it right!), 72 round-cut diamonds, arranged in a very mesmerizing design. The white gold offers the sparkling diamonds a beautiful backdrop to really showcase their true elegance.

It is priced at $799, which admittedly seems a lot, but bear in mind that both the rings have a stunning design & both rings are covered in diamonds - the set really is sure to attract a lot of attention whenever and wherever it is worn...so if your partner loves jewelry that makes an impact & leaves a distinctive impression, this one is unquestionably the one to pick.

0.55 carat Emerald-cut Diamond | $833.75 - White Gold Emerald & Round Cut Diamond Promise Engagement Ring

This stunning white gold & 11 stone, 0.55ct diamond engagement ring is definitely a subtle, understated choice, but is sure to catch anyone's eye. The diamonds are selected by hand to ensure they match in size, colour & quality, and the 14k white gold used is a great accenting feature on the ring.

Priced at $833.75, it is an absolute steal as the retail value of this ring is around double this price! The detail on it is truly captivating, lending it an intricately modern vintage feel, and the row of diamonds on either side of the centre diamond give the ring a dazzling appearance.

Amcor, the company selling the ring, can resize it free of charge, and to top it all off, it comes with a premium quality jewellery box & a certificate of authenticity. Simply put, you really cant go wrong with this one, the pure, elegant simplicity combined with the sale price makes this one a winner!

      I think all of those are lovely rings, and I appreciate your attention to the woman's opinion about her own ring. I was very descriptive with my boyfriend about what I did and did not want in a ring (he will propose later this year) and we have decided to go the custom-designed route. Lovely Lens.
