18 Captivating Art Deco Vintage-Inspired Engagement Rings
Shop Story

Art deco isn’t just a style of architecture popularized by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Art Deco movement extended into  jewelry design in the 1920s and 30s, characterized by geometric patterns, abstract elements, and contrasting colors. Much like TV reboots, what’s old is new again in the world of engagement rings. Art Deco engagement ring styles are everywhere, being designed by the likes of jeweler to the stars Neil Lane, and available at mainstream retailers like Blue Nile

 

You may hear the style referred to as vintage Art Deco, because technically, a piece of jewelry would have to be 20 to 30 years old to be considered vintage, and obviously, Art Deco qualifies. Our roundup features baubles inspired by the art deco style, but aren’t actually vintage pieces that belonged to someone else (you’ll have to raid grandma’s jewelry box to unearth those!). The rings here embody both Art Deco qualities, like careful attention to symmetry and the use of unconventional shapes like triangles, as well as the vintage elements that are so popular today, such as milgrain detailing and rose gold. Look for modern touches as well, such as the use of emerald gemstones or pearls in place of a diamond

 

All in all, get ready to be wowed by these Art Deco engagement rings, and ahem, don’t be afraid to send your man some links for his consideration!
