There are so many lovely antique rings I want to buy on Etsy right now that I can’t even handle it. My dears, won’t some of you please give these pretties a home before I buy them myself?
Really, the issue is that I’ve discovered some really amazing Etsy stores recently through Instagram, and I should give you store profiles on all of them. It’s possible I’m hoarding knowledge from you, darlings. I’ll try to convince myself to share.
I’ve developed the desire for a twin heart ring. I’m not sure where it came from, but apparently that’s another thing to add to my mental jewelry bucket list. This one is glorious. you know how I feel about turquoise and diamonds together.
This beauty is an Art Deco era piece by Raymond Yard. It actually poses no danger to my wallet because I could never afford it in a million years.
It’s gorgeous, though, isn’t it? It dates to the 1920’s. That aquamarine is just under 4 carats, and the side diamonds and engraved platinum are simply divine.
Take a gander at this amazing opal and pearl antique ring. This rose gold beauty is Victorian, with seed pearls and a central opal. The gold work on this one leaves me speechless.
I’ve had a crush on this bizarre Art Nouveau sapphire and diamond ring ever since it appeared on Maejean Vintage’s Instagram a while ago. Look how weird and dainty it is! I just love it.
This carved carnelian ring isn’t actually described as antique, but it looks Art Deco to me; certainly Art Deco-inspired, even if it’s not actually an antique ring. Just look at that luscious white gold filigree! and the carved flowers on the carnelian. Exquisite.
My desire to own this amethyst and diamond antique ring is really rather severe. I love the shape, the colors, basically everything about it. It’s Victorian, with amethysts and rose-cut diamonds set in 15k gold. A real little beauty.

The carnelian is to die for…loving that one and the intricate gold and opal ring. I’ll save you from the carnelian!

Yes! I knew it would work. That’s a beautiful ring, isn’t it? It has so much personality. Rings with filigree that intricate can come off as a little overly busy, but the boldness of the carnelian keeps that one feeling bold and powerful.
