What Do Vintage-Style Rings Look Like?
What bride-to-be wouldn’t love the ornate filigree and engraving detail of the Victorian era, the bows and lace replicated from the Edwardian era, or the geometric playfulness of the art deco era? Engagement rings recreated for all of these time periods and more can be found in this vintage-style engagement ring collection.
Vintage-style jewelry designers utilize milgrain and filigree to create additional detail in the settings. Milgrain is made of tiny metal balls that decorate the sides of the band and the ring’s crown. This Simon G. vintage-style diamond engagement ring is a great example of both milgrain and filigree details. Filigree is another kind of delicate ornamental work with a fine wire formed and twisted into delicate lace-like patterns. Tiny metal beads are often added and then all metal is soldered together to create the final ring design. You can see exquisite filigree detailing in this "Halsey" victorian style filigree diamond engagement ring by Gabriel.
Vintage styles elements like these allow you to choose from a variety of distinct design characteristics that best fit your personality and tastes and then travel back in time every time you look at your diamond engagement ring.
Combining Vintage-Style With The Halo
Some believe the halo-style engagement ring made its debut in the Art Deco era of the 1920s. However, its roots can actually be followed back to the early Georgian era (1714-1837) in Europe, where smaller round diamonds or pearls were placed around the center stone. Regardless of when it arrived on the jewelry scene, the halo design remains one of the most popular, not only with celebrities but with brides everywhere. Perhaps it’s because the smaller diamonds that surround the center stone make that diamond look larger, making the overall impact of the ring seem even more impressive. This combination of halo with vintage-style has brides saying “yes” in record numbers!
