Hello, Victoire readers! My name is Grace, and I am so excited to tell you that the Wellington St. Victoire shop is now carrying Heart Deco antique and vintage rings & ring boxes. You might have seen the sneak peek on instagram a few weeks back (thanks so much for the excitement) and now it's really happening!

The mission of Heart Deco is to provide beautiful, one-of-a-kind antique and vintage rings at an affordable price. Much of the collection would be perfect for wedding and/or engagement rings, but I am also a big believer that - diamonds or not - these beauties work great for anyone, anywhere, anytime. Married, single, engaged, whatever!

Edwardian 18K & Platinum crossover diamond ring $362

Antique 18K white gold heart filigree ring $544
Early 20th Century 18K & Platinum solitaire ring $632

Deco-era 18K engraved wedding band $374

Victorian engraved half-hoop ring 18K & Platinum $695

There is also a great collection of vintage and antique ring boxes in the shop. There are some leather boxes, but most of them are made of celluloid (an early plastic) and date from roughly the 1930s & 1940s. They come in a variety of styles, with beautiful & colourful velvet ring beds on the inside. Perfect for storing a special keepsake, or for engagement & wedding day photo shoots.

vintage boxes from $30-$70
I went looking for a an antique ring myself a few years back, and discovered that it was harder than I thought to find something affordable, especially in Canada! Katie & Régine were so enthusiastic and supportive when I approached them with this idea, and there is no one I would rather collaborate with on a project like this.

If you're in Ottawa, you can find all these lovelies at Victoire's 1282 Wellington St. West (only). For those of you outside of Ottawa, I've got you covered! I'll be selling these all online very soon - check my website for updates.
