Fall in Love with Scarlett Johansson’s Art Deco Engagement Ring!

Scarlett Johansson by Gage Skidmore

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:

 The Silhouette Ring


The Silhouette Ring

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.


The Farrah Ring

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!

The Rubicon Ring


The Rubicon 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.


The Delancey Ring

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!

The ring and the wedding don’t mean a thing if they don’t have a solid relationship.

Better a paper cigar band and lasting love and marriage than a $5,000,000 diamond ring and a divorce 2 years down the road.

I wish them both Health and Love and Laughter together.

This is cool, but where’s the picture of the ring? I’d like to see it.

I have an “Art Deco” ring created for my Great Grandmother in NYC. She lived in West Virginia at the time and made the trip herself. The ring has 2 full carat white diamonds with small sapphires surrounding the diamonds. It is all set in etched platinum. The ring is beautiful and I wear it for special occasions. I don’t think it was made as an engagement ring.

I love every ring on this page. I’m saving my money so that I can purchase one for my wife, soon. Until then, I’ll have to stick to the 100 dollar peace sign necklace and stuff like that. I’m poor, but I still like jewelry. And I’ve bought a LOT of it over the years.
I have always been shocked at the depreciation cost of jewelry. Don’t argue with me because you’re a jeweler–the depreciation of a car is nothing compared with a wedding ring. You pay thousands for it; it is essentially worthless when you walk out the door.
Seventeen years ago, my wife and I pawned our first “practice marriage” rings together, to go on our jet-setter weekend together. That paid for a cup of coffee, but not a plane ticket or anything like we had imagined. Another time, I had a heavy man’s ring. About 8,000 dollars. Gold is pricey now in 2013 compared to when I got that in the 90s. I got 500 dollars for it. Including 5 diamonds in it, between 1/2 and 1 ct. total weight. That is at a reputable dealer who puts his name behind his work. So, I like the idea of recycled gold and silver, very much! It makes a lot of sense. I’m surprised it is not more widely known that “valuable” jewelry is not re-sellable at 1/10 the purchase price, though, aren’t you? I mean unless it is the Hope Diamond, or belongs to Scarlett Johansson. That provenance should increase value or at least keep it the same, I bet!

The ring’s nice. But I’d much rather have Scarlett.

My favorite is the silhouette ring because I love diamonds and saphire is my birthstone. Love it.

Scarlett’s ring is undeniably beautiful, but I wouldn’t want it for my engagement ring. I guess I’m just a traditionalist at heart.

There was something very right about the 1920s. The rings are fantastic.

Who gives a rat’s behind. It’s just the love that matters!

I’m practical- minded, and especially these days prefer to give young men a deserved break. I have two daughters, and hope their intendeds adhere to the ‘anything over a carat is tacky’ rule. Beyond the engagement stone – if you got it, and enjoy bling – bling away.

What lovely windows to the past. For anyone interested in Art Deco jewelry, Generations 1912, headed by Bob Weinman is a company that uses family molds from the turn of the century, passed down to the present owner, to make beautiful jewelry. I suggest a look.
