Just thought I'd toss this one out there -- do any of you ladies have vintage engagement or wedding rings? If so, are they family heirlooms or did you purchase them from a retailer of vintage jewelry?
I recently purchased a diamond and platinum engagement ring (no, I'm not engaged... ) that the dealer believes to date from the early 1940s -- the diamonds are small but very sparkly, and I haven't even had it cleaned yet! I like to imagine the piece's history, and wish I had information about the woman it once belonged to. The dealer also gave me a gorgeous vintage box to keep it in. I'll try again to photograph it, but the images I have so far aren't very good.
