There are a lot of tips, and if you want to learn more. I definitely recommend taking a look at our blog. Um, but if I had to if I had to label it down into five tips, I would tell you like this tip number. One is make sure whenever you’re buying a vintage engagement ring. You’re buying it from a reputable, an expert company. There’s so much information that goes into vintage engagement rings, things that most people have no idea about, And if you if you’re not aware of them, you’re just not going to know. And if the company you’re buying from is not aware of it, you know you should. You won’t know better. They won’t know about it, so make sure the company whoever you’re buying the vintage engagement ring from, make sure they’re experts make sure they really really know what they’re talking about. When it comes to the vintage education rings, I’ll just give you some classic examples of why it’s so important in regards to dating, there’s so much misinformation out there and even companies that are selling vintage rings. Some of them just don’t are not experts on the topic, so for example, you’ll see in a lot of a lot of Art Deco rings that are listed as white gold. And, you know, most people wouldn’t know any better and the problem, of course, would be that white gold wasn’t around for the beginning of the Art Deco era, even towards the end of the article, Eric started showing some most. It’s all it’s almost impossible, if not very, very rare that they’ll ever be a white gold genuine Art Deco ring so again, that’s a that’s a massive red red alert, red alarm, and if you’re not buying from a company. That would know something like that, you know you. You risk not getting a genuine vintage ring. Um, also the diamonds. A lot of times you’ll see in rings have been listed as vintage rings and the diamonds, meanwhile, are modern diamonds, which is a great indicator that the ring is not actually a genuine antique ring and another thing as well is some of them. Sometimes it is a genuine antique ring, but the the craftsmanship is just not up to power. And, you know, just because it’s vintage doesn’t mean it’s good, so it’s important as well to make sure that whatever ring you’re getting is going to be. High craftsmanship and an expert company would make sure that they would only pick the finest rings to put in their collection. Um, another thing that’s another second. My second insider tip and that is, I would always make sure that you get an appraisal. Not just a gia report that a a gia report for the diamond. Sometimes in vintage rings. You actually won’t even be able to get it because they won’t, They won’t want to take the ring out the diamond out and Gio, Only they’ll only appraise loose diamonds, but more importantly, when it comes to vintage rings, you want to make sure there’s an actual appraisal from an expert company which says that all the information of the the ring a lot of times the appraisal company will take one look at the ring and say sorry this this isn’t what is being played, so make sure, in addition to the diamond certificates. Make sure that you have an actual appraisal that either lists the diamond information together with the ring, at least just the ring by itself the next thing that’s really really important whenever buying a vintage catcher and truth is. This applies to any engagement ring for that matter. Make sure you have a full. A proper return policy. Do not buy any engagement ring for any company that will not give you a return policy, which means you need a few days to make sure that whatever you’re buying, you’re willing to keep if you if that you’re buying from a company that won’t give you at least a 14-day return policy. Do not buy from them. It’s a very bad idea. Something is very efficient. Any company that’s willing to to give you 14 days Means they’re willing to stand behind their product. If you’re not going to get at least 14 days, something is very, very fishy. Also make sure the condition of the ring is very good. A lot of people like they look at the ring and they they, they say. Well, it’s vintage. You know, it doesn’t have to be perfect, that’s. True vintage rings means that you know, either 20 years or even antique rings. They’re 100 years old. You can expect wear. That’s absolutely perfectly normal, but you you have to expect that. The ring is in at least good condition. If it’s anything less than good condition, it’s not worth it. It’s not worth getting a ring where you could be worried that maybe the the prongs aren’t holding the diamond in place and the time is going to fall. That’s that’s too large of a risk to to to take, so make sure that whatever if you’re taking bang up into your engage ring, a little bit of wear and tear is perfectly normal. But if the diamond looks in too bad shape, if the ring the craftsmanship of the ring looks in too bad shape, it’s not worth getting that ring and my last tip, and this is probably the most important tip is do research.
