    Why buy second-hand diamond rings

    The right engagement ring doesn't need to be brand-new. Carefully selected and lovingly restored, second-hand diamond rings provide an alternative that's just as romantic and thoughtful. When you find one that's in nearly new condition, you could make big savings on that perfect engagement ring.

    Without knowing the perks of buying one, it's easy to overlook pre-owned diamond rings. We think there are plenty of reasons to buy a second-hand engagement ring, so we've listed a few here.

    One-off, original pieces

    Our selection gives you exclusive access to pieces you might not see anywhere else on the market. Since no second-hand diamond ring is the same as another, you could even find an elaborate piece with a fascinating history.

    From contemporary rings to restored vintage pieces, buying pre-owned means you can access rare, alternative and authentic rings. Much like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, after a second-hand diamond ring in our collection has sold, you won't be able to get it again. No matter its size, origin or diameter, each used diamond ring is something truly unique.

    Lower prices for quality stones

    Diamonds are cheaper second-hand. When you can't afford to compromise on the quality of the gemstone but are still looking for a cost-effective option, buying a second-hand diamond ring is the most intuitive choice.

    At H&T, we have real diamond rings to suit a wide range of budgets, all inspected and approved by our specialists. No matter how flexible or strict your requirements are, we're confident that our selection of second-hand sapphire and diamond rings will step up to the mark. If you'd like to combine diamonds with the finest gold, 22ct jewellery promises something truly exquisite.

    Sustainable, safe approach

    Pre-owned gemstones are ideal for those trying to make the least harmful choice for the planet. Unfortunately, the practice of diamond mining displaces natural environments and can disturb ecosystems within them. Buying a second-hand diamond ring means that you can prolong the lifespan of a ring harvested years ago and promote a circular economy.

    We encourage our clients to consider buying a second-hand engagement ring for this reason. There's a good chance that it will still look just like it did when it was brand-new. We have an incredible selection of eco-friendly men's and women's jewellery, epitomised by our second-hand diamond rings.

    Our collection of pre-owned diamond rings

    We don't just take any piece of jewellery. Before we list a used ring in our online catalogue, we ensure that it undergoes extensive checks and inspections first. Only once we're satisfied that it's authentic, durable and high-quality do we put a second-hand diamond ring up for sale. A few types of rings in high demand include:

    Women's second-hand diamond rings

    Second-hand diamond engagement rings

    If you're planning to propose soon, finding the right engagement ring is an important step. It needs to be something that not only suits their taste but resonates with your relationship too. Perhaps you're looking for a symbol that points to a specific memory, or maybe you'd prefer a ring that connects you both to a certain place. No matter the thought behind the gesture, you'll find the perfect piece in our second-hand diamond ring selection.

    Which styles of second-hand diamond ring are available?

    Before you buy a diamond ring for your engagement or another special occasion, it's a good idea to get to know some of the most popular styles. From the gemstone colour to its specific size and shape, the smaller details deliver a profound effect. A few to look out for include:

    Second-hand diamond trilogy rings

    Also known as a three-stone ring, diamond trilogy rings are easy to identify. They almost always have three diamonds set on the head of the ring, forming a classy and versatile design that's perfect for engagements. You can find a magnificent three-stone diamond ring second-hand with H&T.

    Pre-owned diamond eternity rings

    An eternity ring is different to an engagement ring, given as a symbol of lifelong commitment. Eternity rings typically hold a ring of delightful, identically cut stones within a band of precious metal.

    Second-hand vintage diamond rings

    Sometimes, big occasions call for bigger gemstones. Whether you're looking for a second-hand 1 or 2-carat diamond ring, vintage styles promise some of the most timeless designs. Think bold, beautiful diamonds on 22ct gold, seamlessly positioned as an emblem of love.
