Antique engagement rings from different eras

As the engagement is one of the most important moments in a person's life, engagement rings play a prominent role. You can find engagement rings from bygone eras in our extensive selection of antique jewellery.

Engagement rings from the Art Deco era

Engagement rings from the Art Deco period often feature geometric shapes such as rectangles, squares or triangles and are often set with diamonds. However, other gemstones such as sapphires, emeralds or rubies are also used. Rubies stand for passion and sapphires for fidelity - the perfect message for an engagement ring!

The milgrain embellishment, which is a fine beading that is placed around the edge of the ring, was also popular. Art Deco engagement rings with their delicate details therefore ensure an elegant appearance.

Engagement rings from the first half of the 20th century

Diamond engagement rings were very popular in the first half of the 20th century. The classic diamond ring with a single stone, also known as the solitaire, was the most popular at this time. In addition to gold, white metals such as platinum and white gold increasingly came into focus. Together with white diamonds, this created a classic, elegant look.

The tradition of engagement rings as we know them began at the end of the 19th century in New York, when the jeweller Charles Lewis Tiffany came up with the idea. Around the turn of the century, Toi-et-Moi rings became more and more fashionable, as did trilogy rings with three stones, symbolising the past, present and future.

Turn of the century and Art Nouveau: antique engagement rings

Antique engagement rings from the turn of the century and Art Nouveau form a contrast to the traditional solitaire ring, as completely different shapes come to the fore here. As with many types of jewellery from this period, they focus on natural motifs. Flowing shapes, tendrils, garlands and detailed designs characterise Art Nouveau. Coloured gemstones such as rubies, amethysts, aquamarines and peridots complete the picture. At this time, it also became popular to decorate rings with countless small diamonds.

Historicism and Belle Époque: elegant, antique engagement rings

The Belle Époque jewellery is characterised by the joie de vivre that was typical of this era. It is therefore characterised by its elegance and features simple geometries, leaf ornaments or Greek meanders, while Renaissance and Medieval forms made a comeback in the preceding Historicism eras.
