I love fine vintage jewelry. There's a small antique shop nearby where I work that has a jewelry booth and they have the most amazing collection of engagement rings and wedding bands. Just from looking at those (never had the opportunity to buy yet. . . ), I'm absolutely ruined for ever buying anything modern. The diamonds and other precious stones just have such a clarity and sparkle that I don't think you can get anymore. I think it must be that they're not lab-manufactured like most gemstones nowadays.
