Art Deco Verlobungsringe

(etwa 1920 bis 1940)

The choice of a suitable ring should therefore be carefully considered. Art Deco engagement rings are a wonderful option here, as they are particularly elegant, high-quality and naturally unique.

A brief history of engagement rings

The ring has always been regarded as a symbol of eternity and is still worn today not only for purely decorative purposes, but can also be a sign of an internal connection.

Historically, the engagement ring is said to go back to Pope Stephen I, who wanted to emphasise the promise of marriage and the commitment of marriage. In antiquity and the Middle Ages, iron engagement rings became established, which were - not very romantically - given to the future bride as proof that the dowry had been received.

In the 15th century, Maximilian I of Habsburg presented a diamond engagement ring for the first time.

Art Déco engagement rings

The deeper meaning of the ring makes it ideal as a gift. An antique model has a particular advantage in this context, as it is as individualised and unique as its wearer.

From the 1920s onwards, Art Déco produced beautiful models - preferably in platinum and white gold - that have lost none of their preciousness to this day. The classic Art Déco engagement ring is characterised by clear designs and geometric lines. In combination with diamonds and high-quality coloured stones such as emerald and sapphire, pieces of jewellery with timeless elegance and classic luxury were created.

The typical Art Deco design

An Art Déco engagement ring stands in clear contrast to the models on the current market. While the diamond solitaire has almost become synonymous with engagement rings since around the middle of the 20th century, Art Déco engagement rings focus on opulent diamond setting, set in oval, polygonal or shield-shaped ring heads. Diamonds in different sizes and cuts are framed by delicate millegrains that emphasise the finesse of the craftsmanship of the time. High-quality coloured stones add charming accents and create sophisticated contrasts to the fine brilliance of the diamonds.
