Happy Friday! This week we are featuring five of our very favorite Edwardian era engagement rings. Jewelry during the Edwardian era is from approximately 1890-1915 and is characterized by intricate platinum designs. The Edwardian era introduced platinum to the market and its strength and malleability enabled jewelers to craft extremely complex and delicate rings. Some Edwardian craftsmanship is so fine that stones appear to be set in fragile lace rather than solid platinum! We think that vintage Edwardian engagement rings embody femininity and are the perfect choice for any vintage lover looking for a unique and one-of-a-kind ring to wear forever.
