But if you're still searching for the perfect engagement ring, and you're all about one-of-a-kind, you can't go wrong with a vintage piece. Engagement rings from the late 1800's to early 1900's are beyond gorgeous, and are as unique as they are beautiful. Another major plus is the eco-friendly factor... it doesn't get more green than a vintage engagement ring. I stumbled upon New York's Erstwhile Jewelers while tweeting the other day (psst... follow OneWed on Twitter), and when I checked out their vintage ring selection, I was captivated! They offer rings at every price point (from $2500 to $22,000), all worthy of an everlasting love story just like yours. The stunner above is set in platinum with a European-cut diamond flanked with calibre-cut sapphires, and dates back to 1925. And the Sugarloaf Emerald and diamond engagement ring in photo three simply takes my breath away! Which vintage engagement ring from Erstwhile Jewelers has left you swooning?
