An Antique Eternity Ring Primer
Many of today’s brides would love to have an antique eternity ring for their wedding.
Eternity wedding rings are one of the most popular styles, since the full circle of
stones symbolizes eternal love, and because they look great whether worn with an
engagement ring or on their own.
But, before you go shopping for an antique eternity ring, there are some things you
should know about antique jewelry in general.
The Victorian Period
The Victorian Period follows the reign of Queen Victoria,
which occurred from 1836-1901. Diamonds were discovered
in South Africa during this period, so there are many
diamond pieces from this time.
Jewelry from the Victorian Period is very romantic in style.
Birds, flowers and other nature symbols were popular.
Eternity rings from this period may have contained diamonds or may have had a
filigree pattern on the metal. This ring from Three Graces is a beautiful antique
example from this period.
