What are Victorian engagement rings?

- Sep 03, 2018-

The Victorian style of engagement ring was made between 1835 and 1900. Rings during this era were made of either gold or silver. Rose gold also became popular during the Victorian period, so shoppers looking for antique rose gold rings should look for Victorian pieces. Engagement rings from the early Victorian period were often made with bright stones, particularly the bride’s birthstone. After diamond mines were opened in South Africa in the late Victorian period, diamonds began to be popular for engagement rings, including the diamond solitaire style.
