Antique & Vintage Diamond Rings FAQs
Diamonds are often associated with strength, love, health and longevity. Throughout history, leaders and powerful figures have worn diamonds to symbolise their strength and invincibility.
Diamonds have a rating of 10 on the Mohs scale, making it an extremely tough gemstone. They are the toughest naturally occurring minerals, making them ideal for everyday wear, especially for an engagement ring.
Diamond and metal mining are well-known for their ethical issues, which are understandably concerning for many. While it is possible to purchase ethically-sourced jewellery, it generally comes at a premium price and even with the best intentions, there is no guarantee that can be made as to the impact of your purchase. By choosing to buy rings from an antique or vintage collection, you can minimize these environmental and social concerns.
In terms of sustainability, purchasing antique and vintage rings rather than a new ring can reduce your carbon footprint. As a result, it makes more sense to reuse valuable gemstones such as gold and diamonds rather than mining new ones.
With this in mind, purchasing antique diamond rings and vintage diamond rings is considerably better as it mitigates the damage done to the environment from the effects of mining practices.
