Vintage Trends: Two-toned engagement rings

My boyfriend surprised me by proposing with his grandma's engagement ring.  I absolutely adore it.

Wandering around New York last week, I kept noticed that a lot of shops (like In God We Trust)  were carrying similar vintage ones. Which seemed appropriate since his grandparents bought the ring in Brooklyn in the 1930's.  I love yellow gold, and the two-tone ring seems like a great way to ride out the ever changing gold/platinum trends.   

Etsy and ebay have many of these gems to offer, some favorites I spotted include:

Awww… What a sweet surprise! It must have been the happiest moment of your life. Plus, the fact that the ring was his grandma’s engagement ring was another surprising story. Your boyfriend sure loves you so much! And can I just say, the ring is beautiful!
