Characteristics of Vintage Engagement Rings
When we talk about vintage style, what does that mean? Generally, a vintage ring is inspired by a period between 1890 and 1930. This era was divided between two art movements that revolutionized the world of jewelry design, Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Art Nouveau is characterized by naturalistic curves and themes, while Art Deco featured bold lines and architectural themes. Platinum was first able to be melted in this era, making it the metal of choice for vintage jewelry. Milgrain beading, detailed filigrees, and step-cut diamonds also characterize both periods. Here at The Wedding Ring Shop, we’re pleased to offer vintage-inspired engagement rings to our customers!
Popular Vintage Engagement Ring Collections
When you’re looking for a vintage engagement ring, Noam Carver has a Vintage collection just for you: The halos run the gamut from the asymmetric earth-grown beauty of the Nouveau period to geometric shapes. And in all the pieces, Noam Carver utilizes the most high-quality diamonds, pave-setting them in the sides of these treasures. If you’re fond of the Vintage collection, you’ll enjoy the Tacori RoyalT line. Reflecting the sheer opulence of the Art Deco period, these rings are made exclusively for diamonds bigger than two carats; the halos are made from jointed baguette halos, which works to make a striking geometry a woman will adore.
Additional Vintage Engagement Ring Collections
Vintage style, however, can be paired with extraordinary modernity to create something unexpected. The Michael M Strada collection is built around princess-cut diamonds and split shanks, two very contemporary touches. However, these pieces also include a euro-style shank, pave-set side stones, and the round-cut center stone popularized by Tiffany & Co. Altogether a magnificent vintage look, the Strada collection is well complemented by the Hearts on Fire Deco Chic collection. The bezel settings that scream “vintage,” and the multi-level octagonal halos are just the treat a discerning fiancée will admire. And of course, don’t overlook our vintage collections from other top designers!
