With that comes choosing engagement rings that feel like heirlooms – pieces that will be handed down to future generations over the years. And so, we are seeing a focus on engagement rings with heirloom-inspired designs and details. Think intricate touches like filigree, elaborate halos and milgrain for a vintage and antique feel.
