    Happy Friday! Today we are featuring five of our favorite rings from one of our very favorite periods in jewelry: The Edwardian Era. Spanning about 1900-1920, the Edwardian era produced some of the most beautiful and intricate pieces in jewelry history. Advances in metal fabrication allowed for the use of platinum in jewelry, an extremely workable yet strong material that could be handcrafted into the feminine, lace-like designs you see below. The era also saw the rise of the enhancement technique milgraining, where small decorative platinum beads were added to to magnify the ring's elegance. We are featuring five of our favorites below, but are proud to have an extensive collection of vintage Edwardian engagement rings at Trumpet & Horn. Be sure to check out the rest of them here!

    T&H Couple: Devan & Andy

    T&H-Couples-devan-andy

    Congratulations to our latest T&H Couple, Devan & Andy! These two lovebirds met in college at a mutual friend's party. On their first date, they learned that they grew up only ten minutes from each other and even worked the same summer job without ever meeting! After seven years of dating, Devan & Andy came to Trumpet & Horn in search of the perfect vintage engagement ring. When the Victorian era cluster ring Nantucket hit our website one fine Tuesday morning, Andy snatched it up within minutes. He knew it was the perfect ring for her. For the proposal, Andy chose his family's lake house (his "Happy Place") in Sebago Lake, Maine as the setting. He took Devan to the dock at sunset and popped the big question. Devan was ecstatic, and the two celebrated alongside family, friends, and a spectacular sunset. The pair are set to be married in Mexico next October. Congratulations you two!
