Unique piece vs. mass-produced item

The diamond solitaire is generally regarded as the engagement ring par excellence. And while it also symbolises timeless elegance, for many a wearer it lacks personality and individuality. Art Nouveau engagement rings, on the other hand, are characterised by their imaginative designs, which still stand out from the crowd today. Organically curved shapes and motifs inspired by nature are characteristic of the entire era and were reflected, for example, in bold Toi-et-Moi rings or in figurative designs in the form of animal figures and female figures.


Historical symbolism and ancient craftsmanship

Art Nouveau rings are therefore the right choice if you are looking for a feminine and playful ring that focuses on natural, asymmetrical lines and combines these with (coloured) gemstones and/or ornate enamel.

At the beginning of the 20th century, for example, the aforementioned toi-et-moi rings, which symbolise a union of two lovers ("you and I"), or snake rings, in particular the Ouroboros, were popular. This is the motif of a snake that bites its own tail and thus represents a closed circle, which in turn is to be understood as a symbol of eternity.
