    A brief history of the engagement ring

    The engagement ring dates back as far as the Ancient Romans. Mostly cast from iron or ivory back then, gold rings were only affordable for the higher classes in society. Rings of this period were plain bands without stones. It wasn't until 1477 the first diamond was used in an engagement ring, for an Archduke of Austria.

    With diamonds becoming more accessible in the Victorian era, new designs and stone shapes began to emerge. It wasn't until the late 1940's that diamond Engagement rings really gained popularity.

    Diamonds are still a highly popular choice for pre owned engagement rings, but more gemstones and precious metals are on the rise. Choosing a ring with coloured gemstones is a great way to reflect your partner’s personality.

    Solitaire Rings

    One of the most popular types of engagement ring is the Solitaire diamond Ring. This classical ring features a single stone taking centre stage, flaunting the elegance of this design. This timeless style often features brilliant cut diamonds, with other shapes such as baguette and princess cuts offering a new look.

    We also have a selection of Solitaire Rings with accent stones in stock today. The extra stones transform the Solitaire diamond Ring into a far more eye-catching and show stopping engagement ring.

    Trilogy Rings

    The Trilogy ring provides a powerful meaning to your partner. Consisting of three stones, the Trilogy ring symbolises the past, present, and future of a couple's relationship. This striking style began increasing in demand during the Victorian era, with the middle stone being the largest.

    With diamonds being the norm for used engagement rings, the Trilogy ring has become more versatile recently. As times have changed, these rings also feature Rubies and Sapphires, fashioning a more tailored Trilogy ring for your partner.

    Halo Rings

    One of the more sought-after styles of pre owned engagement rings is the Halo Ring. The Halo ring dates back to the Georgian times, consisting of a large centre stone with surrounding smaller pavé diamonds. These smaller stones help amplify the shine of the larger stone, increasing the wow-factor for all to see.

    Why choose second hand Engagement Rings?

    When deciding on the perfect ring, choosing to buy used gold engagement ring can offer some unexpected benefits.

    Pre-owned engagement rings are usually far cheaper to buy than brand new jewellery. You can still buy rings with high quality stones and craftmanship second hand, without breaking the bank.

    Second hand engagement rings are also a more sustainable choice. Mining for new materials used in jewellery causes negative impacts on the environment in locations around the world. Being kinder to the environment never shined so good.
