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:
