  1. Antique and Vintage engagement rings are extremely popular with brcomment_IDes today. Although this article is a great topic to cover, some of the rings included would not qualify as a “true vintage engagement ring”. An engagement ring that is vintage should be more than 50 years old and have filligree and millgrain details such as this ring. [url][/url]

    I hope that helps. Thanks for an excellent article on a hot topic of interest, for couples about to embark on an engagement proposal.
