Vintage Gemstone Rings
The style of vintage gemstone rings is just as at home on your finger as it is in grandma’s jewelry box. From frilly to flashy, these pieces showcase the natural beauty of gemstones with settings inspired by the past. Since biblical times, gemstones have been recognized for their beauty and worth. In Proverbs 8:11, King Solomon compares wisdom to rubies, presenting wisdom as something of great worth to be desired and sought after: “For wisdom is better than rubies, And all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her” (NKJV). King Solomon used one of the most valuable things he could think of—a gemstone—to explain the worth of wisdom. Read more.
The value of gemstones hasn’t changed much since then. While our vintage gemstone rings don’t harken back quite as far as Solomon’s time, their style is distinctively inspired by the past and their stones are still beautiful objects of desire.
A wide variety of precious and semi-precious stones allows you to choose one that fits your style and personality. Precious stones include rubies, emeralds and sapphires and, as the name suggests, they are often more rare than semi-precious stones. Semi-precious stones include amethyst, aquamarine and garnet. Apples of Gold’s vintage gemstone ring collection also features several unique stones, such as white and blue topaz and rose kunzite.
This rainbow of choices allows you to pick a stone that is sentimental to you, or to find one that really catches your eye. Apples of Gold uses only the highest quality gemstones, so you can be confident that no matter which you choose, you’ll be getting a superior piece of jewelry.
Vintage gemstone rings make stunning engagement rings, as seen prominently on the Duchess of Cambridge’s finger. Will proposed to Kate with a sapphire and diamond ring that belonged to his mother, Princess Diana. While an 18-carat stone is a bit out of reach for most of us, vintage gemstone rings in a variety of styles are well-suited for a bride-to-be who likes the extraordinary and out of the ordinary.
Apples of Gold’s antique-style gemstone bridal sets aren’t your typical engagement ring and wedding band sets. They stand out in a crowd with their timeless style and gorgeous colors, and add a uniquely personalized touch to any proposal or wedding ceremony.
If you’re a fan of vintage style but are on a budget, try one of Apples of Gold’s silver vintage gemstone rings. They feature many of the same stones as our white gold styles at more affordable prices.
The variety of Apples of Gold’s vintage gemstone rings—from delicate Victorian to bold Art Deco—make it easy to find a piece that’s uniquely you. Their style and worth has already stood the test of time.
