Characteristics of Vintage Engagement RingsWhen we talk about a “vintage” engagement ring, what does that mean? There are a number of beautiful styles of engagement rings that are tied to specific time periods in history. These styles may not have gone out of fashion, but eagerness for new trends may have pushed them to the backburner. Some of the most popular styles of vintage engagement rings are inspired by the Edwardian Era, the Art Nouveau period, and the Art Deco period. Here at BENARI JEWELERS, we have elegant collections of vintage engagement rings from the top designers in the industry, and the diversity of their offerings means that no matter what your tastes are, you’ll find what you’re looking for with us.
Popular Vintage Engagement Ring Collections at BENARI JEWELERSSome of the most explicit touches from the Art Nouveau period are the presence of sapphires in engagement rings, halo-style rings, and milgrain beading. When you’re looking for a ring that explores that style, you can look to the Classic Romance collection from Simon G. The collection, which lives up to its name, boasts all these features and more. The luxurious treasure trove of side diamonds complements the river of blue sapphire encircling the center diamond. Plus, another vintage feature is the use of silky platinum, which was the craze of the Nouveau and Deco periods.
Appropriately named too, the A. Jaffe Art Deco collection is a checklist of the qualities that made Deco jewelry beautiful. For example, the bold, forward-facing style of the era is typified by the designs that A. Jaffe sculpts into the rings with 18k white gold. Strong architectural geometry is accented by up to half a carat of side diamonds. Also, if you like to see a blend of vintage engagement ring details with contemporary Scottish designs, Maevona offers the Scottish Towns collection, which harmonizes features like diamond-shaped prongs and triple center stones, intertwined bands, and chevron-cut side diamonds. It’s difficult to imagine a more elegant set of rings than the ones from Maevona.
