Today’s post is going to a DitL classic sort of post, where we round up a bunch of antique engagement rings and admire them together. I tried to come up with a theme, but really I’m just in the mood to admire the classic beauty of rings made 100 or so years ago.
The theme of this post shall be “these antique engagement rings are pretty, hooray!”
Let’s start things out with a bang. Several of these antique engagement rings are going to be from the Art Deco era, because that’s how I roll.
This magnificent beast is a spectacular 3.10 ct diamond Art Deco engagement ring with calibre sapphires. A huge, juicy diamond in an intricate setting with tiny, sparkling diamonds an vivid blue sapphires? What’s not to love.
This ring – and the others today – are all from perennial DitL favorite, Lang Antiques.
How freakin’ cool is this 1920’s ring? Its die-struck setting is ostensibly a straightforward solitaire, but the elegant, curving details beneath the diamond make it truly special. A unique beauty.
How about a perfect cushion cut diamond sandwiched between two luminous emeralds? Yes, please. I love antique engagement rings with colored stone details, and this one from 1915-1920 fits the bill.
