Baguette Cut

Another feature to examine when shopping for vintage inspired engagement rings is the cut of the stone. As with any accessory, trends come and go and then come back again. Baguette cuts may not be all the rage at this moment, but have been extremely popular before. Definitely associated with 1930s glam, this geometric cut is really beautiful.

Colored Gemstones

Diamonds haven't always been the go-to stone for engagement and wedding rings. And using a colored gemstone can instantly make your ring stand out from the crowd on Instagram. We adore this oval aquamarine ring with its scalloped rose gold band.

Geometric Settings

Colorful Accent Stones

Walk around a vintage jewelry store and you'll soon find out that previous generations loved bold gemstone accents. Whether emeralds, rubies, or sapphires, everyone from the Victorians to your grandmother appreciated a pop of color.

Pearls

We hope this ring trend returns soon! Pearls are actually very common in vintage engagement rings. Especially in a setting like this one, with a slightly Egyptian influence, brides in the 1920s and 30s favored this style.
