Christmas is the perfect time to spend a bit of money and show your wife and girlfriend how much you care. Of course it isn’t about the money you spend, however spending time and effort choosing the perfect gift can be just as enjoyable for you as it will be for the person receiving it and shows just how well you really know them. If you are having trouble finding the perfect present for your partner and really want to make a statement then a piece of antique jewellery is a great option for you to consider. There is a huge variety of styles and prices and it is guaranteed they won’t own anything like it. As such, we’ve teamed up with leading antique ring dealer, Antique Diamond Rings, to take a look in a bit more depth.
A Gift So Special
The uniqueness of every piece of antique jewellery makes it so special to receive which is what your partner deserves this time of year, and whether it be for an engagement or not a ring makes the perfect present. A necklace or earrings can be just as beautiful, however a ring is a more wearable piece which can be worn every day, and can be seen by the wearer at all times to remind them of that special time they received it. Something which attracts people to invest in antique jewellery is the fact they are very unlikely to come across another like it and it will never fail to draw attention from others. This is something you can’t appreciate with modern designs as they are more simplistic and commonly seen.
A Gift Which Lasts A Lifetime
It is a nice gesture to receive something off your partner which can be kept and antique rings will almost certainly last you a lifetime. With them already being around a century old or more, it shows the great quality of the piece and it will only get more beautiful with age. The classic designs of the rings in a huge variety of styles from different eras will never go out of fashion and as i mentioned earlier they look beautiful and act as a statement piece against other jewellery.
Which To Choose?
The price of antique rings depends on the materials and stones each one is made from. If you are planning a magical Christmas engagement then it will obviously be a bit pricier with beautiful gold or white gold pieces ranging from around £500 to £3000, however this is no more than you would expect to pay for a modern ring and your girlfriend will receive something far more unique and special. Other antique rings come in any price range with good quality pieces starting at around £100 and with a bit of research and shopping around you will find the perfect piece suitable for both your Mrs and your budget.
There really are no downfalls to investing in antique jewellery. The quality is always excellent, the designs are classic and unique and the prices are affordable. The only thing to look out for is reproduction antique jewellery. If the price is very low it is likely too good to be true so look out for little signs such as wear on the ring and also a mark to show where the ring was made or who made it. If you really know your wife or girlfriend and choose the perfect ring for her you will be sure to receive a memorable reaction and hopefully her Christmas day will be even more magical.
