Why Are Art Deco Engagment Alternative Rings In Demand?

November 29, 2018

There is a romanticism attached to the Art Deco era based on the distinct fashion trends, artwork and architectural style. Jewelry designers were willing to create beautiful pieces that had unusual lines and dynamic gemstone groupings.  The contrast of diamonds with colored stones such as emeralds, sapphires and rubies was a quintessential element of Art Deco engagement rings.

A resurgence of interest in these antique lovelies is perfectly sensible when you  consider and appreciate the nuances of a ring such as this Art Deco diamond and sapphire engagement or alternative ring.

Notice the dazzle of the center diamond that is full of sparkle.  It is an old European cut with depth and dimension.  It is flanked by channel set sapphires in a delicate crescent moon shape.  The contrast is captivating and the added artistry demonstrated in the placement of the crescent shapes make for an extraordinary ring.

A final elegant and very Deco element completes the mount - a geometric pentagon fit so seamlessly into the curvaceous components.  You will also notice the etched details along the shoulders of the ring which provide a finishing touch.

 

With careful consideration, the fascination with Art Deco engagement rings is evident.  They are fine, unusual and well crafted pieces of art!
