Your Guide to Shopping With Us
At Trumpet & Horn, we’re passionate about finding one-of-a-kind vintage engagement rings that tell a story of history in a modern world. Looking for an engagement ring? Here are the 10 things you need to know before you begin shopping with us!
1. All of our rings are one-of-a-kind!
Every engagement ring you see on our site is one-of-a-kind. Our engagement rings are all authentically antique or vintage, unless they are a part of our Vintage-Inspired or Nouveau collection (see below). With each piece you see, there is only ONE of everything, and each ring comes with its own appraisal! So that means when a ring is marked as SOLD, that particular vintage ring is gone forever, but we may have something similar! If a ring says that it's RESERVED, that means the ring is either out on a photo shoot, another customer has asked us to hold it for a few days while they decide, or it's currently in someone's shopping cart. If you're interested in a SOLD or RESERVED ring, please get in touch with us. We may be able to to help you find another vintage engagement ring that you'll love, or let you know when it will be back (if so!)
2. We have a Vintage-Inspired and a Nouveau Collection for newly made engagement rings and jewelry
The engagement rings in our T&H Vintage-Inspired Collection are newly made pieces on our website, made in a vintage “style” with antique cut diamonds and recycled metals. These are typically modeled after vintage rings that we had on our website at one point, but were sold quickly and requested by many customers ever after. In these cases, we determine whether we are able to re-make the ring for a similar price that the original sold for, and if so, we re-make one or two engagement rings that are added to our Vintage-Inspired Collection. All of our the rings in our Vintage-Inspired Collection are handmade. We are typically able to make these engagement rings over and over again, and in some cases we may be able to make slight adjustments to the design - just ask!
The T&H Nouveau Collection is inspired by one of our favorite artistic eras and each piece uniquely embodies Art Nouveau while fitting seamlessly in with the Trumpet & Horn brand. We wanted to create a line of jewelry that celebrates a woman's everyday grandeur, regardless of if she dons an engagement ring! The collection contains engagement rings, earrings, necklaces, cocktail rings and stackable bands.
3. FREE shipping.
We want your shopping experience with us to be as painless and risk-free as possible. We ship all of our vintage engagement rings and fine jewelry with free overnight shipping. If you're planning a spontaneous proposal, we have you covered!
4. FREE returns.
If you receive your ring and don't love it, return it! Or, if you can't decide between two rings, try them both on at home and we'll give you a full refund on one or both rings. Return it to us for free within 5 days (or longer if you let us know when you plan to propose!) and we'll give you a full refund, no questions asked.
5. FREE ring sizing.
All of our vintage engagement rings can be sized to your exact size (unless otherwise noted in the ring's description), and sizing with your purchase is FREE! We can size it before we ship it to you, OR send it back to us for free after you try it on and we'll size it, for free, and send it back to you, for free. Doesn't get much easier than that!
6. Check out online or give us a call!
Yes, we are an e-commerce store! You may check out via our website with a credit card, OR give us a call to pay with multiple cards, by check, or through a wire transfer.
7. Yes, we offer payment plans.
We have partnered with Affirm to give you a simple way to make that special purchase with no hidden fees. And the best part about it? You'll get your ring right away! Affirm offers easy monthly payments over a 3, 6 or 12 month period, at APR rates between 10-30% APR. All you have to do is provide basic personal information (name, email, mobile number, date of birth, and last four digits of SSN) at checkout and you will be approved instantly. For more information about Affirm financing, check out their website.
8. We offer in-person appointments at our showroom in Los Angeles.
Our retail showroom is now OPEN! Let us know which engagement ring (or rings) you are looking at, and call or e-mail us to set up an appointment to come see our vintage rings in person. See our Appointments page for more information.
9. We are GREAT at what we do, but there are some things that we just don't do as well!
Our passion is for vintage engagement rings and fine jewelry— and those are the things that we know really well. However, we DON'T: Make custom rings, sell mountings without their original stones, or swap diamonds out upon request. The integrity of our antique and vintage engagement rings is so important to us that we would hate to do anything that might compromise the original, hand-made craftsmanship of the original jeweler. Please call or e-mail us if you have any questions about this!
