The Most Amazing Engagement Rings in 'Antiques Roadshow' History

Vintage-inspired jewelry is all the rage right now, which explains why so many women watch "Antiques Roadshow" and stare longingly at the antique engagement rings featured on the show. Over the years, this popular antiques appraisal program has showcased jewelry from Tiffany, Cartier, and other esteemed jewelers. Some of these rings cost a small fortune, but others are actually quite reasonably priced. Here is a guide to some of the most valuable, most beautiful, and most memorable diamond rings featured on the series to date.

In a 2011 episode set in Miami Beach, one "Roadshow" guest brought in an engagement ring that belonged to their aunt. The diamond ring was valued at $25,000 to $35,000, and featured a center stone of 2.5 carats. While the setting was relatively new, the stone itself was dated to the 1950s.

Interestingly enough, not all of the engagement rings on the "Roadshow" are older pieces. For example, a May 2012 episode set in Minneapolis featured a yellow diamond ring that only dated back to the late 1970s. The ring, which clocked in at an impressive 3.4 carats, was appraised for $160,000. While some women find yellow diamonds to be less attractive than white stones, the fact remains that many women would love to own a ring that had such a high appraised value. It's also interesting that this ring has such a high value, considering it was a relatively new piece.

One of the most fascinating jewelry stories in the show's history was revealed in a 2012 episode. A Minneapolis woman brought in a Belle Epoque ring fitted with three diamonds. Dated to 1915, the ring was appraised at $30,000 to $50,000. But astonishingly, the ring was almost lost. The owner found the ring tucked into their great-aunt's old sewing machine case, where it had gone unnoticed for years! Only after the sewing machine went through a house fire did the owner notice the ring. Just goes to show you should always check any inherited items over with never know what might be hidden away!

Finally, a 2012 "Roadshow" episode set in Atlanta featured the appraisal of a Tiffany sapphire and diamond ring. The ring dated back to 1950, and previously belonged to the guest's grandmother. The ring was valued at $4,000 to $6,000, plus several thousand more for a matching bracelet. The center sapphire of the ring was 1.80 carats in weight, and the ring contained both platinum and palladium. The guest even brought along a photo of the grandmother wearing the ring, which added a nice touch to the proceedings.

Whether your are looking to get engaged soon, or just love the artistry of vintage jewelry, "Antiques Roadshow" has an impressive array of engagement rings that continue to dazzle the folks watching at home. These great designs provide excellent inspiration for people shopping for engagement rings.
