Why do we love vintage things (well, rings, specifically) so much?!?!! One reason: they are so GD pretty. And they also have that timeless, storied look that you’ll want to tell people about for as long as that ring remains on your finger. I literally live for scrolling through my Instagram feed and double tapping all of the vintage styles I see. So, we thought we’d chat it out with one of our favorite brands, responsible for putting 💍💍💍 on the most discerning, vintage-loving brides out there. MiaDonna has an epic selection of conflict-free, lab-grown diamonds, that bring the antiqued aesthetic into modern times, without turning up the negative environmental and social impact [that Earth-mined diamonds do].
The rings get their looks from some of the GREATS
The majors at MiaDonna draw inspiration for their Engagement Rings and Wedding Ring Sets from a variety of solid sources. When dreaming up ideas for their Antique and Vintage-inspired designs, they look to past and present movies, celebrity engagement rings and fashion trends to lead the way. Their vision boards have pins from movies like The Great Gatsby, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Marie Antoinette and since-retired period television series like Mad Men and Pan Am. MiaDonna’s Founder, Anna-Mieke, and her design team have collaborated on rings inspired by the vintage details in Katie Holmes engagement ring from Tom Cruise, Katherine Heigl’s engagement ring from Josh Kelley and Miley Cyrus’s engagement ring from Liam Hemsworth. And the brand even sells a solitaire engagement ring that bears a striking resemblance to the antique engagement ring that Behati Prinsloo scored from Adam Levine.
Gorgeous guys (ahem, Liam and Adam) and gorgeous vintage rings… maybe that’s some kind of road map to eternal happiness? We wouldn’t discount it… 🤔
But that vintage look doesn’t come at a price
Yes, timeless beauty is unmatched, but when you consider what some of these rings feature, and how it was acquired, that beauty gets shallower and shallower. A vintage ring with a non-conflict-free diamond will inevitably shine bright, but we’re pretty sure it’ll lose its sparkle as soon as you think about how many ethically, socially, and environmentally unsavory things might have been at work behind it. Thankfully, everything that MiaDonna makes is guaranteed to be 100% conflict-free and clear of any ill impacts. They are a foundation-first organization and proudly use at least 5% of profits from every sale to fund education, mentorship, agriculture, and urgent relief programs in diamond mining regions through its charity, The Greener Diamond. Sooo you can look at that Daisy Buchanan-style stunner of yours, and feel ALL good about it. 👍
