Art Deco engagement rings

Art Deco engagement rings

Who thinks of Art Deco jewellery, thinks of abstract forms, glamour and timeless elegance. This style movement affected the ' 20s and ' 30s. Women no longer had the urge to embellish themselves with diamond tiaras and other statement jewelry, as they did in the Victorian era. Instead, they wore long necklaces and earrings, headbands, etc., and this to compensate for their ever-shorter dresses. A decadent time full of geometrically cut diamonds, both colourless as coloured.

Art Deco fits perfectly with our current zeitgeist. It is therefore not surprising that there is more and more demand for such as engagement rings from that time. However, it is not so easy to find a vintage Art Deco ring. Often they are very expensive. Therefore we recommend to go for a custom model. Need help? We would be happy to assist you.

Geometric shapes

Art Deco engagement rings are known for their geometric shapes (triangles, squares, rectangles, etc.), both the processed diamonds as the models. It is the main characteristic of this movement. Baguettes are perfect, but also the emerald cut is suitable. Please note: rectangular shapes do not have such a pronounced brilliance. For example, they shine a little less than a round diamond, but are not less beautiful. Also very popular was the brilliant, though you can no longer compare it with today's modern variant.

Contrasting colours

Usually there are (also) coloured diamonds and/or gems processed in Art Deco engagement rings. In addition several (contrasting) colours can be combined. And ofcourse colourless or white diamonds are also still present. In this decadent period there was an abundance of diamonds, radiant in a white gold or platinum Art Deco setting.

We at BAUNAT have an extensive collection of engagement rings, but there is also the possibility to have a ring tailor made. If you have any questions you can always contact us.
