Ginny

Regular price $0.00

Curved Engagement Ring Circa 1915

The Ginny Ring is an Edwardian engagement ring circa 1915! This amazing curved engagement ring centers a stunning old European cut diamond weighing 1.45 carats of M-N color, VS2 clarity. The diamond is set in 8 platinum prongs. To each side are an additional 4 diamonds set in swirling, platinum-topped yellow gold. The band is a smooth yellow gold. The ring is size 6.25 and can be resized!

Why We Love It

Have you ever seen anything quite like it?! A spin on a classic solitaire with curving sides that add a distinct look to this vintage stunner! Add in a gorgeous old Euro with a lovely, warm hue and you have yourself a one-of-a-kind engagement ring! With platinum and gold, you get the best of both worlds—the classic warmth and color of gold with the stylistic appeal of platinum. The platinum topping also serves a practical function here. Being more dense and more durable than gold, platinum is one of the most ideal settings for diamonds—and one of the most secure! This two-tone curved engagement ring is an absolutely distinct treasure!

Edwardian Inspiration, Distinct Vintage Flair

The Ginny ring is undeniably unique, so what makes it Edwardian? Its curved features and platinum-topped yellow gold setting! The Edwardian Era was brief but distinct, lasting for approximately the first decade of the 20th century. As the successor to the Victorian Era, it’s famous for being opulent, ornate, and organic. Edwardian style features flowing floral designs along with bows, ribbons, and wreaths. In the Ginny ring, the curved features suggest all of these qualities, shaped like holly leaves or even ivy, adorning the central diamond like a crown.

The Ginny ring is also interesting because it’s actually a very late Edwardian style. Circa 1915, the Ginny ring was crafted right between the Edwardian and Art Deco Eras, and the ring itself reveals this shift. Instead of depicting leaves as we would find them in nature, the leaf-like pattern is somewhat more abstract and modernist. Just as the gold and platinum come together beautifully in this curved ring, so too do the vintage styles that inspired its design!

Q: What types of payments do you accept?

A. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, certified check, bank transfer, and Affirm.

We are also able to split payments over multiple cards! For this option, you can contact us and we can walk you through it!

Q: Will an "out of stock" item be restocked?

A: Unfortunately not! These are all one of a kind vintage and antique engagement rings so there is no other ring quite like it! Sometimes we can recreate a sold piece so Contact Us if there is a style that you can't get off your mind! For some of the vintage-inspired pieces, we can often recreate the ring!

Q: Will you sell the setting without the center stone?

A: Unfortunately not! We do not sell only settings and we try to preserve the vintage integrity so we do not separate the diamonds from the setting. 

Q: What shipping do you offer?

A. We offer FREE overnight shipping Monday through Friday in the continental US. The package will come in a UPS or FedEx box and will not have our name on it in case it is a surprise!

Q: Do you offer payments plans?

We offer up to 60-day installment plans and are happy to split payments over multiple cards if needed. Since layaway rings are taken off the market for extended periods of time, they are exchangeable but not returnable. Payments are non-returnable for payment plans.

Q: What countries do you ship to?

A. We ship to the United States, Canada, the UK, most European countries, Australia, as well as many other countries. Feel free to contact us to see if we ship to your country!
