Watch: 100 Years Of Engagement Rings

Mode.com are back with another brilliant video that takes us swiftly through the ages. This time around, we’re not chronicling the ways in which men’s swimwear has grown ever tighter (avert your eyes!) before loosening out again to hideous Hawaii-inspired board shorts, we’re looking at engagement rings.

If you’ve been pondering over while style will best suit you, or you’re looking for something vintage but not sure which era to go for, this video will satisfy the magpie within you.
