When assessing engagement rings in vintage or antique styles, we look at a number of different things. We assess antique diamond cuts and carat weight to determine the value of your vintage ring's diamond, if it has one. Of course, we also understand the value of other valuable stones that are found in many vintage rings, such as a blue sapphire or other colorful gemstones.


Of course, when it's an older ring, we understand it might not be in like-new condition. However, we'll consider its overall condition as part of its value. Jewelry from a specific period might be more valuable than a piece from another period, so we'll look at this, too. Many vintage rings are made from rose gold, white gold or yellow gold, which has its own value. Depending on the period that your ring is from, it might be made from platinum (such as the Edwardian era), which has a high value, too.


We have a lot of experience with valuing antique diamonds and vintage engagement rings. To get an accurate, on-the-spot offer for your vintage engagement ring, stop by Hilltop Pawn and Jewelry any time that we're open, six days a week. We'll value your jewelry in minutes, and if you like our offer, you'll be able to get paid for your vintage or antique ring on the spot, in cash.


What is a Vintage Engagement Ring?

When dealing with vintage jewelry, the first thing you have to understand is what, exactly, a vintage engagement ring is. Basically, a vintage engagement ring is any engagement ring that is at least 20 years old. If you're interested in an even older diamond ring, you may want to look for an antique engagement ring, which must be at least 100 years old. All antique rings are vintage, but not all vintage rings are antique, based on age.


As you can probably imagine, styles have changed quite a bit over such a long time period, so vintage and antique rings can all look very different from one another. Some are from the Victorian era, a time when rings sometimes had diamonds but often featured pearls or opals. Some are from the Art Deco era, which is known for its bold, geometric designs. Others are from the Retro era, when diamonds became even more popular in engagement rings and started getting bigger and bigger.


How to Take Out a Loan on Your Vintage Engagement Ring

With a pawn loan at Hilltop Pawn and Jewelry, you can use gold and diamond jewelry, as well as other items of value, as collateral. This allows you to take out a big loan, all without a credit check or application process. Vintage engagement rings are perfect collateral for one of our loans, and the best part is that you don't have to give up your ring forever. Instead, let us hold it as collateral until you repay your loan, and we'll keep it safe and secure until you come back. We even offer extensions on our loans if you need a little more time; just make sure you stop by sometime before your repayment date to let us know you need an extension. We'll be more than happy to grant you one.


Our pawn loans can be used for anything! You can also take out a bigger loan by bringing in multiple pieces of vintage jewelry or other items of value. We'll assess their combined value and make you a loan offer based on that. Just be sure to bring your ID when you take out a loan (or when you sell us jewelry). We're required by the State of Virginia to see your ID, but that's about all we need to grant you a loan. It'll be the easiest loan you've ever taken out!
