With one word, Scarlett Johansson broke millions of hearts around the world. That word was “Yes” and it was said in response to Romain Dauriac’s marriage proposal!
Dauriac, a French journalist, obviously knows a good thing when he sees it. The couple had been dating for a little under a year when he popped the question in early September, and we like to think that his choice of engagement ring had something to do with the positive answer!
At the Venice Film Festival, Johansson wore a simple off-the-shoulder black dress that drew attention to her colorful necklace…and her stunning antique engagement ring! The ring features three bezel-set center diamonds in a long rectangular frame filled with diamond accents. Additional diamond accents in thinner rectangle frames step down on either side to form this iconic Art Deco style.
Art Deco rings were created between 1920 and 1935 and were highly influenced by the style of the roaring twenties. The jewelry of the time mirrored the fun, bright, energetic world around it. Haircuts and fashion became much more masculine in the 1920s—the short bobs and undefined sheaths of the infamous flappers being the most obvious example. Jewelry followed suit, showcasing bold colors and highly geometric patterns. Lacy filigree and soft colors were a thing of the past! Johansson joins the ranks of other celebrities who adore antique engagement rings, including Penelope Cruz (who totes around a vintage sapphire ring from Javier Bardem) and Mila Jovovich (whose antique style ring mirrors Scarlett’s).
If you love Scarlett’s vintage style, consider choosing a stunning Art Deco engagement ring! Here are a few of our favorites:
The Nelle Ring
The Nelle Ring is a showstopper featuring an old European cut diamond surrounded by ten single cut accent diamonds. Six French cut lab sapphires provide a pop of vivid color against the ornate and milgrain detailed platinum ring.
The Tanja Ring
The stunning Tanja Ring displays two old European cut diamonds bezel set in a unique pear shaped top. Nine single cut diamonds add shimmer and shine to complete the dazzling design.
The Elana Ring
Geometric shapes and fine detailing reign supreme in the Elana Ring, which dates to the 1930s. An old mine cut diamond shines from the center of a square setting surrounded by eighteen old mine cut diamond accents.
The Lelah Ring
Two-tone metal and differently shaped diamonds give contrast and interest to the exquisite Lelah Ring. An emerald cut diamond sits in the center of four old mine cut round diamonds, while eight single cut diamond accents provide shimmer and shine in all directions.
