In a beautiful example of what’s old is new again, Art Deco engagement rings are soaring in popularity. We see many variations on this style trend, from customers looking for one-of-a-kind antiques, to those who want to replicate or customize a vintage piece they have seen, to those who love the Art Deco inspired designs in our Antique Inspired engagement ring collection. We would like to show you a few of our favorite Art Deco engagement ring options. Maybe you’re in the market for an engagement ring and want something more distinctive—like a vintage feel, a bold design, a splash of color, or a piece with a romantic past. Maybe you’re already married but you are considering something unique for a special occasion gift. Or maybe you just like looking at beautiful jewelry (we don’t blame you). Regardless of the reason, we invite you to read on and be inspired.
The Art Deco Era
The Art Deco Era (circa 1920-1935) had a lasting impact on the jewelry industry – it marked the beginning of cutting techniques that resulted in the sparkle and fire of the modern round brilliant diamond cut. Art Deco engagement rings are characterized by bright colors, straighter lines, and geometric forms that create a fun, stylish look. The bolder, more dramatic designs in jewelry reflected what was occurring in the era generally: as the economy boomed and the ‘20s roared big, women experienced a newfound freedom in expression. Moving away from the restraint of past eras, many women were eager to showcase a more daring side of themselves through fashion and jewelry.
