8 Amazing Art Deco Engagement Rings

Celeste Perron

The past few years have seen more and more young women falling for engagement rings from the Art Deco era. With their geometric lines and dazzling sparkle, these designs often feel as fresh and contemporary today as they did almost one hundred years ago.

The Art Deco era, the period from 1920 to 1935, marked an exciting shift in the worlds of art and design, and jewelry was no exception. During this time advances in gemstone cutting created the sparkle and fire of modern diamond cuts, resulting in glamorous rings that suited the fizzy and festive feel of the roaring ’20s. The diamonds in Art Deco engagement rings are often accented by vibrant colored gemstones, chic geometric settings, and the cool, contemporary sheen of platinum or white gold. If you love Art Deco engagement rings you’re certain to be dazzled by these designs:

The Kalkora Ring

Kalkora Art Deco Engagement Ring

The Kalkora Ring captures the geometric sensibility of the Art Deco era. A dazzling old European cut diamond sits nestled in the center of twenty bezel-set single cut diamond accents.

The Elouise Ring

Elouise Art Deco Engagement Ring

A round cultured pearl and two old mine cut diamond accents form the platinum centerpiece of the Elouise Ring, a mixed metal piece from the 1920’s. Five rose cut accent diamonds in each shoulder give brilliance and sparkle.

The Triska Ring

Triska Art Deco Engagement Ring

The Triska Ring features two old European cut diamonds held aloft in a delicately detailed kite shaped head. The milgrain bordering, six old European cut diamond accents, and four French cut natural sapphires add to the appeal of this unique ring.

The Vedette Ring

The Vedette Ring’s floral motif is carried out beautifully with an alluring cushion-shaped natural ruby in a diamond double halo with larger diamonds in the inner halo.

The Shanti Ring

The Debbie Ring

The Debbie Ring showcases an exquisite round diamond in a rhodium plated top. Diamond accents on each shoulder lead to the 14k yellow band adding intrigue to the charming ring.

The Marcelene Ring

A vibrant green emerald shines from the center of the Marcelene Ring. The 18k white gold setting of this 1940s ring is adorned with milgrain detailing and pierced designs.

The Romona Ring

Thank you for this article! My mother has my grandmother’s Rani ring in her possession. It is the only thing I have ever asked for, since I was a child of 10!

I really love the old mine cut diamonds! They have so much life. I have my grandmothers’ two engagement diamonds and my original diamond sent in a band ring. The two old diamonds really outside my ideal cut flawless diamond. Same in a Deco brooch with all old European diamonds. Anyone else agree? But really, the emerald cut is my special favorite. So elegant!

Old diamonds are the best. European, mine cut and transitional are all I check out when I buy on ebay.

The Fabia – beautiful contrast of the sapphires nestled amongst the diamonds!
The Hayleigh – gorgeous zircon (my birthstone) nestled amongst the diamonds and white gold!
I purchased a 3/4carat 9 old mine diamond clustered ring with 18k gold band at an antique show for $400 back in 1980. Appraised for $1000 back then. Didn’t really appreciate the old mine diamonds until I read the comments here!

The Fabia ring is my favorite, except I would make the center stone a sapphire also.

I love the Integration ring. My Mother left a platinum ring which was somewhat the same design. I put one diamond in the middle and two rubies surrounding it….stunning! I love Art Deco pieces.

I have to love the period of the 1920’s. So elegant, and as a man I think the women’s fashions were gorgeous and exciting. I also love the cars. It’s too bad that while their tastes were stylish, their knowledge of economics was imperfect.

AM I the only one to notice that none used traditional yellow gold?

I recently decided that I deserved to give myself a pre-retirement celebration gift after 46 years as a nurse. i chose a smaller (.9 carat) but quality Asscher cut diamond in a platinum Adorned Trio band. It is a colorless, ideal cut internally flawless, with 6 tiny diamonds flanking the stone. The Asscher cut is a square emerald like stone and is like looking into a crystal cave. Was worth going smaller to have such a spectacular diamond, and in a dark room, it somehow finds light and sparkles as though it has light from within. Best gift to myself, and worth the wait!
