I have been obsessed with engagements rings ever since I was a kid; I used to love making my?own out pieces of tin foil.?I remember staring in awe at my grandmother's or mother's diamonds glittering on their fingers, and?the feeling of devastation I felt when'my mother lost one of her sparklers down the bathtub drain. While I adore all rings, there is something particularly beautiful about the classic style and elegance of a vintage ring: one that looks like it has a history, and harks back to an era of art deco (think Zelda Fitzgerald or Kate Moss-inspired jewels). To add a little sparkle to your Friday, here's a gallery of some of the most beautiful engagement rings around.
