Still looking for something old and something new for your wedding day? Vintage wedding bands can serve as both! The styles of these rings bring the past to life, giving them looks that allow them to serve as beautiful interpretations of the first part of that classic bridal rhyme: something old. However, their ability to celebrate the promises that you make on your wedding day also make them gorgeous symbols of something new.
Vintage wedding rings for women are popular picks, not only for their good looks, but also for their ability to represent the timelessness of your love. The styles of these rings have proven their staying power, and the fact that they’ve retained their appeal decade after decade allows them to serve as more-than-fitting symbols of a lasting relationship.
Quality craftsmanship is a hallmark of vintage styles, contributing not only exquisite style but also fitting representations that you’re willing to give the very best to the one you love. For example, the Handmade Paisley Floral Wedding Band in 14K White Gold is expertly carved by hand with a graceful motif of flowers and paisley-like swirls. This detailed motif provides a look that’s soft yet stunning as it adorns this 3m-wide band. And, if 14K white gold isn’t your thing, this demure little ring is also available in 18K white gold, 14K yellow gold, 14K rose gold, platinum and sterling silver.
Flowers are a popular motif on vintage wedding bands, both with and without paisley, and their presence adds an unmistakable touch of romance. And, when these botanically-inspired patterns are paired with diamonds, they create a glittering picture of love that’s always in bloom. For instance, the Floret Diamond Wedding Band displays a row of 11 glittering diamonds, totaling nearly a quarter carat, placing them in a band with time-honored appeal. These channel-set gems glimmer as they’re framed by delicate milgrain edges, while a meticulously-carved repeating floret motif adorns the sides of this lovely 14K white gold piece. The design that’s lavished upon this striking, feminine wedding band matches the motif found on the 3/4 Carat Three Stone Princess Cut “Floret” Diamond Ring, allow this wedding band to serve as a perfect partner for a truly stunning engagement ring. These two rings are also available as a matching bridal ring set.
While vintage wedding bands are often thought of as styles for women, they’re not just for ladies! Apples of Gold carries a number of vintage men’s wedding bands, such as the Antiqued Celtic Knot Wedding Band. This 8mm-wide 14K white gold band is wrapped with a Celtic knot motif, an emblem that many have adopted as a symbol of eternity, creating a stylish picture of love without end. An antiqued finish makes this design stand out, while simultaneously giving this ring a look that’s cool and eye-catching.
Whether you think of them as something old or something new, vintage wedding bands are excellent options for expressing timeless love. These rings declare that your relationship has staying power.
