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 and1935 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:
We love the Silhouette Ring for its striking geometric pattern. Round, bezel-set diamonds are separated by triangular sapphires, creating a long, rectangular design the glitters across the finger.
This gorgeous ring from the 1920s features a sparkling old mine cut diamond surrounded by diamond accents in milgrained frames. This would make a stunning engagement ring!
This showstopper of a ring features a bezel-set center diamond and a stunning geometric design that glitters with diamond accents. Black onyx details create a beautiful contrast, making this ring even more wonderful to look at.
This ring is from the Art Nouveau period—about ten years before Art Deco style was born—but the three stone style is so similar to Scarlett’s we had to highlight it!
