Yellow gold is definitely a bit more rare in vintage engagement rings unless you go to the Victorian and earlier eras! But, when you do find a yellow gold ring, it is usually a gorgeous piece of art! Jewelers and designers from antique and vintage eras mastered the art of working with yellow gold. The unique texture of this beautiful metal allows jewelers to sculpt creative details for one of a kind looks! Here are five amazing vintage yellow gold engagement rings from the Victor Barboné Jewelry collection that we adore!
The Beatrice engagement ring is a stunner from the end of the Victorian Era. The sizeable 1.66ct diamond provides a gorgeous focal point. But take a closer look at the amazing detailing! This ring features an incredible hand-sculpted laurel halo that’s truly one-of-a-kind. Delicate millegrain details along the band and the satin finish of the yellow gold provide an extra touch of elegance. This ring is remarkably detailed and delightfully unique! Add to that a super low profile and you certainly have a #dreamring!
Looking for a more classic look with rich antique character? The Annalise engagement ring balances the two perfectly! This gorgeous ring is from the beginning of the Edwardian Period and dazzles right away with a tremendous, billowing old mine-cut diamond serving as a centerpiece. The main diamond is flanked to either side by three tapering diamonds, also set in platinum. The play between the yellow gold band and the platinum setting creates an alluring contrast that is simply irresistible. Millegrain detailing and elegant fluting down the shank add even more depth and character!
The Brooklyn engagement ring offers a gorgeous solitaire look from the time period in which this style first rose to popularity. This Victorian beauty circa 1900 features a 1.94ct antique cushion cut diamond that has incredible liveliness! The stone is a warm M-N color, which complements the yellow gold band perfectly, while the tapered shoulders add a prevailing note of feminine grace. This vintage yellow gold engagement ring showcases a design that is simple, pure, and beautiful, while its subtle antique character and gorgeous diamond serve to elevate it and make it unique!
Three Stone Beauty
The three stone style is an ever-popular choice for wedding jewelry! Our Carrie engagement ring showcases the origins of the style as it rose to popularity almost a century ago. The center 0.90ct diamond is flanked by twin 0.44ct stones—and all three feature a stylish Old European cut with incredible scintillation! Gorgeous yellow gold encases the perimeter of each diamond, adding a bright pop of color! We love three stone rings because you get a big look that spans the entire finger! The sparkling white fire of the diamonds and the rich, warm color of the yellow gold pairs brilliantly together!
For a simple but unique design, look no further than August. This vintage yellow gold engagement ring features five beautiful old mine cut diamonds that taper down in size from the center. But the real showstopper here is the incredible yellow gold detailing. The linked prongs create a clean, marvelous lattice that produces a one-of-a-kind look. The faux split shank adds subtle charm and elegance to finish off this amazing design!
