Antique vs Modern

Antique vs Modern

Written by Kathleen Jackson on 22 October 2012

As of late the engagement rings I have been designing with my customers in their consultations seem to be influenced in one of two ways: Antique or Modern.

At the moment it seems to be popular to sway one way or the other – which do you prefer?

Generally, Antique inspired engagement rings have delicate tapering bands with beaded detail, often with intricate settings; whereas the modern inspirations tend to have a band which is the same width all the way around with solid settings such as end-only or all-around.
