Why Gilbert's Catalog
Rings in this category are typically Yellow Gold wedding bands for him and her - this includes Solitaire rings as well.
Rings must be at least 75 years old to qualify for being considered ‘Antique.’ They will typically have rose cut or miners cut diamonds, a large amount of milgrain beading and hand engravings.
Art Deco rings tend to have the same flare that Antique rings would have, but are instead crafted using modern tools with a ring that was created in the 20th century. They will also typically have a thinner bottom shank and a bigger head for the center stone.
Classic rings share many characteristics with Traditional style rings/bands, but additionally include Delicate Solitaire as well Delicate rings that have a thin shank and with side set stones.
Estate style jewelry is noted for being on the flashier side: ornately designed necklaces or rings filled with diamonds fall under this category. One may even find brooches in the shapes of various plants that also have diamonds included in them.
Vintage rings lie in the same spectrum as Art Deco and Antique styles: rings/bands will typically have a lot of hand engravings, milgrain beading, intricate metal work and many micro pave set diamonds.
