Art Deco Style Engagement Rings
Thanks to the recent Deco resurgence, Art Deco Engagement Rings are once again in vogue.
Brides-to-be are becoming more vocal when it comes the style of engagement ring they would like. The thinking is that if I'm going to be wearing it my whole life – I want to love it!
And women want to be unique, yet be elegant, stylish and classy all at the same time.
They want to express themselves and the jewelry they choose to wear is an extension of their overall look and style.
Art Deco engagement rings are popular because they meet the needs of today's modern woman – they're both elegant and unique.
Deco style is quite eclectic, which suggests that the variety of ring styles would appeal to many different women.
They're also in limited supply, which makes them all the more desirable.
Characteristics of Art Deco Engagement Rings
One of the largest jewelry trends of this era was bold, bright colouring – emeralds, rubies, sapphires, yellow diamonds were popular stone choices.
Traditional diamonds were also quite popular and typically set in gold or platinum.
The easiest way to recognize a vintage engagement ring is by its angular or geometric shape. Triangles, rectangles, squares and oblongs were very popular during the 1920s and 1930s. The Classic Princess, Emerald and Baguette cuts are your best choice if you want a classic Art Deco shape.
For the unconventional bride-to-be deco offers some unusual options as well: rings embellished with pearls, quartz, onyx and jade. Although these unusual rings are harder to find, they are well worth the search in my opinion.
Also, look for wedding bands with chevrons or zigzag pattern to complement the stunning engagement ring.
