What are Vintage-Inspired Engagement Rings?
If you love living life outside the box, consider shopping for vintage-inspired engagement rings at Azzi Jewelers. Featuring heirloom-quality touches and a great deal of history, these finely crafted rings celebrate the popular jewelry of the Edwardian, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco eras. Styles range from the bold to the romantic with design details such as milgrain beading, filigree, and breathtaking step-cut diamonds. Additionally, many vintage rings are crafted with platinum, as the metal was first able to be melted during this time period.
Vintage-Inspired Engagement Ring Elements
If you appreciate fine detailing, a ring with milgrain is likely to turn your head. This jewelry style rose to popularity in the late 1920s into the 1930s during the heart of the Art Deco era and is still appearing on vintage-inspired engagement rings today. We especially love the intricate pattern on this S Kashi & Sons Micro Pave Engagement Ring. The channel cut sidestones add an extra touch of Old World elegance.
Referring to a subtle jewelry embellishment featuring fine threads of precious metal, filigree appeared in plenty of pieces from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras. In particular, brides raved over pieces showcasing filigree that was twisted or curled into delicate scroll patterns. Today, you can expect to see filigree in the gallery of rings with a cathedral setting. Additionally, many top designers include filigree patterns on the ring band or shank. We are especially enamored with this Zeghani Halo Crown Engagement Ring that boasts elaborate lacework and a dramatic halo center stone. It’s the perfect ring for women who appreciate a little Downton Abbey style romance in their lives.
When we say engraving, we are not just talking about names or initials scrolled on the inside of the band. The most beautiful vintage-inspired engagement rings feature elaborate engraving in the form of geometric patterns, delicate florals, and more. Achieved by sculpting or carving away the metal, these patterns result in a stunning ring ideal for brides who like to make a statement. Consider the Stuller Vintage-Inspired Engagement Ring, which gets added drama from its masterful hand-carved metalwork and pave set side stones.
