Wedding Wednesday: a guide to antique engagement rings

If you’ve always dreamed of an antique engagement ring (or you’re reading this knowing that this is just the kind of ring that your fiancee would love), then check out this infographic from online auctioneer Catawiki.

There’s something really lovely about buying a preloved ring to continue its history, and it playing a role in this new chapter of your love story. Catawiki has a fantastic selection of antique engagement rings up for grabs in its online auctions (we’ve already eyed up the marquise cut three diamond ring!), and is actually holding a special wedding ring auction at the moment. To browse rings in real life, head to Grey-Harris in Bristol, Bartlett Street Antiques Centre in Bath, Bakers Fine Jewellery in Cheltenham (which also has branches in Bath and Gloucester) and Jonathan Green Antiques in Salisbury.
