Great story behind why Erstwhile carries the assortment they do:

In the beginning engagement rings were just part of the assortment among other vintage jewelry classics by the likes of Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels.. but over time, people got really excited about the engagement rings that we had so we started to carry more. Our popularity as the go-to for antique engagement rings grew, and we now focus on antique engagement rings and Victorian jewelry.. specifically,  jewelry that tells a story. We particularly love the Victorian Gothic styles of mourning jewelry made popular by Queen Victoria when she was mourning the death of Prince Albert.  Mourning jewelry is made from materials like rich gold incorporating jet and black onyx.

Good luck Cakelets!

ps. If you aren’t the lucky winner, don’t let that hold you back from browsing for your own unique vintage piece on the Erstwhile website!

UPDATE: The contest is now closed, and the winner is… Evangeline Richeson of San Francisco! Congrats!
