I think we’ve known each other long enough by now that you can suspect how excited I am to write this post. I’m rather in love with all of these. If only I had more fingers (and money).
Without further ado: Art Deco engagement rings.
I really love this one. I think the shape of it is just gorgeous – almost floral in outline, but in a geometric way. This ring is circa 1920s-1930s, centered by a 1.40 carat European-cut diamond with a spready cut that gives it the outline of a 1.75 carat diamond. The diamond is flanked on each side with sparkling geometrically designed shoulders leading down to hand-engraved details adorning the top half of the ring shank. I think the way the shoulders lead into the engraving on the ring shank is just perfection.
This little beauty centers a very fine 1.13 carat European cut diamond set in a square box head with both baguette and round cut diamonds surrounding in a geometric platinum setting. It has a low profile and a beautiful overall silhouette. I just love the delicate shoulders.
This lovely ring has a relatively low diamond carat count but it’s so sprinkled with sparklers that it would definitely still catch the eye. The center diamond is the largest, at .15 carats, with smaller accent diamonds throughout the rest of the geometric millegrain setting.
