    Antique Rings

    Not everyone is excited by jewellery, while others decorate their hands and wrists like Liberace. Other than wedding and engagement rings I am not particularly excited by it. I wear family heirlooms, but rarely purchase anything of interest. Modern jewellery is not my cup of tea.

    Antique rings on the other hand do excite me somewhat. I think it must be the sense of history and character each ring possesses, the story behind each one. Heartache or happy endings, each ring has its own unique story. I wear my own mother’s ring and other than reasons of sentimentality, antique rings often have stones of much higher quality, are often far more sophisticated and much more detail has gone into the making of them.
