Sofia Kaman Curated Vintage Engagement Rings

Victorian Jewelry

The Victorian era (1835-1900) celebrated Queen Victoria and her love of the arts. Snake motifs were all the craze as the Queen herself dawned a snake engagement ring set with her birthstone of vibrant emerald, the symbol of eternal love. After her husband's passing, she went into a long stage of mourning, spawning a flooding trend of black enameling, onyx and gold lockets. Up until this point, birthstone rings were common for engagement, but as the diamond mines of South Africa were developed, diamonds began gaining popularity and the diamond solitaire engagement ring was born! Victorian jewelry can be home to delicious Old Mine Cut diamonds, Old European Cut diamonds and antique Rose Cut diamonds!
