How To Choose An Antique Wedding Ring


If Antique Wedding and Engagements rings all sound a bit Greek to you, how to choose an Antique Wedding Ring With T.W.I.S.T will help you see the light of day and appreciate that sparkle in that old cut gemstone!

When choosing Antique Wedding rings, experience has taught me to pay careful attention to the following five key areas:

  1. Craftsmanship
  2. Style
  3. Materials 
  4. Condition 
  5. Authenticity

Condition is Vital

An antique jewel's condition is vital. Repairs might well have saved the jewel's life and helped to ensure it survived the ravages of time. However, some repairs are well done, while others repairs are not so good and will negatively impact the antique jewelry value and the integrity of the piece. Can you see any repairs?

Relax and take your time when selecting a piece and don't be rushed by enthusiastic sales assistants. Each one of us, have individual preferences.

Consider the scientific facts of the Mohs scale - no gemstone is as durable and strong as a diamond. Facts About Diamonds remind us, that although a girl's best friend does have superior strength over other gemstones, diamonds still break and chip. A girl's best friendscratches just like the Big Cats.
