Why buy a Second Hand Engagement Ring

  • Pre-owned or vintage engagement rings often have unique and distinctive designs that may not be readily available in new collections. If you appreciate a one-of-a-kind piece, buying a second-hand engagement ring can provide a wider range of options.
  • Vintage and vintage style engagement rings are particularly appealing to individuals with appreciation for art and history. Each vintage engagement ring often reflects the design trends and craftsmanship of its era, providing a glimpse into the past.
  • For those with existing collections of vintage jewellery, a vintage engagement ring will complement other pieces when worn together.
  • Unfortunately not every engagement story has a happy ending and as a result some pre-owned engagement rings are nearly new and in mint condition.
  • Second-hand engagement rings are typically more affordable than brand-new ones. This can be especially beneficial if you wish to allocate more funds to other aspects of your engagement or wedding.
  • Authentication and / or certification should be requested with any second hand engagement ring to confirm a genuine purchase.

  • You might be able to afford a higher quality or larger stone when buying second-hand compared to buying a new ring with a similar budget. This allows you to get more value for your money.
  • Opting for a second-hand engagement ring is a sustainable choice. By recycling and reusing a pre-owned engagement ring, you reduce the demand for new resources and minimising the environmental impact associated with mining and manufacturing new jewellery.
  • Diamonds, the most popular gemstone choice for engagement rings, are highly durable as implied by the famous De Beers slogan ' diamonds are forever'.
  • People who appreciate history and nostalgia may be drawn to the romantic and sentimental qualities of vintage engagement rings. The idea of wearing a ring with a history and a story behind it can be very appealing.
  • At S&R Jewellers we can resize many of our preloved engagement rings so please enquire if you find a style you love but it is not currently your or your partner's finger size. We will be happy to advise.
