Vintage Wedding Rings

Vintage wedding rings are evocative of the romance and sentimentality of bygone times.  For couples looking for a ring that truly tells a story, vintage wedding rings are a superb choice.

Ring style



It’s understandable why in recent years many couples have chosen vintage wedding rings rather than purchasing modern, mass-produced pieces.

Vintage wedding rings are perfect for couples who look to do things a little differently. Vintage style wedding rings,are not only environmentally friendly; every vintage style wedding ring has a romantic story – now you and your loved one can become a part of it.

What is the best way to clean vintage wedding rings?

To keep your vintage platinum wedding bands in the best possible condition, cleaning should be carried out with warm, soapy water. Avoid harsh chemicals on an antique ring, especially one featuring gemstones.

Of course, the best cleaning practice for your ring will vary depending on what it is made from. Take a look at our guide on how to clean antique jewellery to find out the best option for your antique wedding ring.

What makes a ring an antique?

A ring is considered vintage if it is between 20 and 100 years old. Any ring more than 100 years old is an antique.

What are the different styles of vintage wedding rings?

Just as there are a range of engagement ring styles available, there are plenty of wedding ring styles to choose from, too. The most traditional and well-known style is the plain wedding band, often in gold and platinum.

For those looking for a little more sparkle, there are stone-set bands, which feature diamonds or gemstones. Vintage cluster engagement rings and vintage solitaire engagement rings are also popular choices, though they are more commonly used as antique engagement rings.

Can you propose with antique weddings rings?

Although not traditional, antique rings can be used in a proposal – especially if it’s a family heirloom. We offer a range of vintage engagement rings  at Gatsby Jewellery; browse our collection if you feel an antique engagement ring could be the right choice for you.

Which metal is better for wedding rings?

Traditionally, wedding rings were crafted in gold (either 9ct, 18ct or 22ct) and these vintage gold wedding rings tend to work best with our range of vintage gold jewellery. White gold and vintage platinum wedding bands came a little later in the 20th century, and work best with our collection of antique white platinum jewellery. Modern materials like tungsten cannot be resized, so once your finger changes size (and over your lifetime it will) then your ring will be consigned to the drawer.

Do vintage wedding rings hold their value?

If correctly maintained, well-crafted antique or vintage wedding rings will hold their value for generations.
