A new future, an old ring

The New York Times recently wrote about using Grandma's jewelry box as the inspiration (or the source) for a fantastic, and budget friendly, engagement ring. Obviously we, too, love the hand-crafted, unique details you only find in the vintage pieces. Even if you don't have a family stone to give to your intended, choosing an antique engagement ring is still a lovely way to add a bit of Old World glamour to your new and exciting future.
