Tired of shopping for an engagement ring among the hundreds of tired modern trends that don’t last? There is a case to be made for skipping the modern jewelry stores selling brand new rings and instead turning to genuine vintage treasures! Choosing an engagement ring is a whole experience, and an investment in new beginnings with a loved one. Keep reading to discover five reasons to choose a vintage engagement ring with us!


Perhaps the biggest pro to choosing a vintage engagement ring is the ability to stand out with your choice. While walking into a brick-and-mortar chain could get you a “trendy” ring, thousands of other brides have probably recently walked away with something very similar. Every vintage engagement ring comes with a unique story and an opportunity to make its own special statement.


At Maejean Vintage, we are committed to making choices that value sustainability. Buying a vintage engagement ring breaths new life into old jewelry and minimizes negative impact on the environment by repurposing old metals and gemstones.


Buying pre-owned may seem like a second-hand option for other purchases, but with jewelry, there is incredible value in investing in a vintage piece over a brand new manufactured ring. Choosing an engagement ring doesn’t have to break the bank. Due to its pre-owned nature, a vintage engagement ring can be highly affordable without reducing value!

Shopping Small

Skip the manufactured atmosphere of a chain jewelry store and walk through the doors (or virtual “doors”) of a small business! The recent couple of years have stressed the vital importance of taking every chance we can get to support a small business. Taking the time to browse through vintage jewelry curated by a small business is rewarding, and a win-win for both you and the friendly face behind the shop!


If you’ve ever stared curiously at old photographs, researched the history of an antique, or imagined what life might have been like decades ago, you understand the romance in a vintage engagement ring! While the history of some pre-owned rings may remain a mystery, there’s something incredibly romantic about a small symbol of love being an important part of multiple couple’s stories throughout history.

We love working with couples to find the perfect genuine-vintage engagement ring to fit their style! Contact us about what you’re looking for, and we’d be happy to take a look at the treasures we’ve sourced to help you find the perfect addition to your love story. ❤️
