Adrienne old mine cut diamond engagement ring


Adrienne is a classic vintage engagement ring showcasing a very special antique diamond. The timeless eight-prong solitaire setting, with a tapered 18-carat yellow gold band, was crafted in the 1980s, but the diamond dates from much earlier than that. Weighing an impressive 0.53 carats, the old mine cut diamond was prevalent from the mid-1800s to the early-1900s, so this antique stone is 100 years old at the very least. With its distinctive silhouette and larger facets, back when this beautiful old mine cut diamond was cut and polished, the whole process would have been undertaken entirely bit hand, which is reflected in its softened contours and understated sparkle, which has so much charm and character.

One of the aspects of vintage engagement rings that we find most endearing is that they are precious reminders of the fashions from days gone by. Whilst the majority of clothing and accessories from the Victorian era no longer exists, leaving us with only sepia-tinged photographs to remember it by, well-made jewellery from the years in which Queen Victoria ruled over Great Britain endures. It is this extraordinary ability to evoke a certain period in time that we find irresistible. 

Whilst some classic designs have remained popular through the decades, there are also lots of design quirks and flourishes that immediately identify a ring as belonging to a specific period of time.

To learn more about the defining characteristics of certain epochs, check out this helpful page or head to our blog.



We source our rings with the utmost care and attention. For a ring to catch our eye, it must be unique in some way. It might be the design that draws us in, or the gemstones, or perhaps how it has been set, but ultimately, if it’s not well made and of good quality, you won’t be able to purchase it on our website. 

Each ring goes through a rigorous process of checking, cleaning and polishing to ensure that, by the time it reaches you, it is looking its best. We employ a craftsman in London’s Hatton Garden to check the setting of every stone and, where necessary, to fix it. We thoroughly clean every ring to remove any dirt that may have built up over time and polish the gold or platinum to a gleaming shine. Only when we have done all of this do we take it to the Assay Office in London for the creation of a pre-sale report – our pioneering Certificate of Authenticity.



We want you to be happy with your purchase and to know that what you're buying is the real thing, which is why we created our Certificate of Authenticity, which is unique to The Vintage Ring Company. It is our guarantee to you that any ring you see on our website has been professionally assessed and is exactly as described.

Certificate of Authenticity. The Vintage Ring Co

Signed and stamped by The Goldsmiths' Company, it will tell you everything you need to know about your ring, from the type of precious metal used to the size and quality of the gemstones. It will also specify the era in which the ring was made and even the year if it has been hallmarked as such.  

They are also a lovely keepsake of your engagement that you can present to her - once you've popped the question, of course!  



Your ring will arrive elegantly packaged in a white box, branded on the top with a vintage-style wax seal, ready for you to propose. It will be accompanied by your Certificate of Authenticity, presented in a luxury white envelope.
