Engagement Ring Trends Bring New Value to Older Styles
For a man in love, there’s nothing more important than finding the perfect engagement ring to offer his future bride when he asks for her hand. A growing trend in engagement rings is the halo design which features a large central stone encircled by several smaller stones. Some of the increased demand for such rings is thanks to the recent royal wedding and the stunning diamond and sapphire ring adorning a certain beautiful young woman’s princess-y finger. The stones in halo rings are all diamonds or a mixture of diamonds and other precious jewels and are set in yellow gold, white gold, silver or platinum. The interesting thing about the “new” halo design is that it actually exists in many antique and vintage rings. When you are looking through that jewelry collection inherited from a relative hoping to sell gold or sell silver online you might want to check for a halo ring as well. If you are lucky enough to find one you should only deal with a company that has extensive experience in how to sell diamonds.
Antique and vintage halo style engagement rings are circa late 1800s to early 1900s and usually feature intricate scroll work on the band and stone setting. The stone settings and band designs on these rings can be so elaborate you may think they are costume jewelry but what if you are wrong? What if all those sparkly stones are real diamonds and precious stones? Do not sell those supposedly decorative rings at a garage sale without taking them to a gold, silver and diamond expert to have them appraised. If they’re fake it’s only cost you some time, if they’re real then you stand to make some unexpected money.
It is not just halo engagement rings that are growing in popularity in today’s market. Vintage and antique styled broaches, necklaces, ornamental rings and earrings are fast becoming a trend among jewelry designers. If these “antique style” or “vintage style” pieces sell for thousands of dollars, imagine what a genuine antique or vintage piece in good condition with precious stones may be worth. If someone wants to own a genuine piece of history and not just a copy, that old broach of your great aunt’s could be worth much more than just sentimental value. Selling your sparkling jewelry pieces to someone who knows how to sell diamonds, silver and gold passes that beauty on to a new generation while insuring you have a little extra income for your own future.
Perhaps it’s time to look back through that old jewelry collection inherited from a relative and reevaluate whether or not it’s all fake or costume pieces. You never know where you’re going to find a hidden treasure and it’s an ideal time to sell your gold and silver. It’s hard to know what your jewelry is worth when you sell gold or sell silver online but you can trust the experts at NoCo Gold & Diamond to give you the best price.
