Perhaps you've already snagged your dream man, or maybe you just like ogling beautiful things (yeah, us too), but either way, your engagement ring should be as unique as your love affair (and your sense of style). Are you as tired as we are of seeing the same old cloned cushion cuts and humdrum pears with pavés? Well, retro rocks might just be the cure for what ails us. After all, this is one piece of bling that really shouldn't feel like a ball and chain.
That's why we've handpicked some of the most ravishing vintage engagement rings around. This slideshow's got deco diamonds, trippy sculptural bands, and some classics for the more traditional of the bunch, too. Think of it this way: You've already got the first part of "something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue" out of the way!
