Heirloom Jewelry: Vintage Engagement Rings

Every family has vintage engagement rings that have been passed on to them by their ancestors and generations before them. These treasures are usually in the form of collectibles, charms, diaries, photos, clothes, paintings, coins, recipes, handicrafts and/or jewelry. We label such treasures as family heirlooms. They remind us of our history and of the people who are no longer with us. They may come with a price but they are priceless in terms of sentimental value.

These heirlooms are more than just everyday objects. They are stories and therefore must be preserved. Does your family have any such heirloom that has been passed onto you by your great grandmother? If yes, don’t you feel better every time you hold onto it? Probably yes? Now think how would you feel if your great, great granddaughter/grandson feels the same? Wouldn’t you like to leave behind something of sentimental value for them to tug onto?

If yes, you’ll want to keep reading!
