The Origins of the Art Deco Style
Art Deco relates to a period known as the “Roaring Twenties,” although the era bled into the 1930s. The Art Deco movement originated in France, following the popular Art Nouveau style. Primarily seen in high society, Art Deco engagement rings were considered a symbol of decadence, luxury and extravagance — qualities still associated with this ring style today.
The Art Deco aesthetic is defined by bold geometric shapes, strong colours and streamlined forms. When it originated in the early 20th century, it was heavily influenced by contemporary architecture and transportation as well as Aztec and Ancient Egyptian art. In fashion and jewellery, Art Deco captured an of-the-moment sophistication and pared-back modernism that departed from the ornate decoration of the past. During the Art Deco era, women were celebrating new freedoms, and fashion and jewellery adapted in line with these. Through the glamour of Hollywood, a new stylish woman was born, and modernist geometric designs became increasingly popular.
These bold, abstract designs have continued to capture our hearts and play a significant role in society for nearly 100 years, making the Art Deco era one of history’s most influential art movements. If your partner loves this timeless style, Art Deco engagement rings are an excellent choice to express their unique sense of style.
Why Choose an Art Deco Engagement Ring?
Art Deco engagement rings were the dream of every flapper girl in the Roaring Twenties and remain sought after today. This style of jewellery was influenced by ancient Egypt and the 1922 discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, which led to a renewed fascination with all things exotic. Even in the 1920s, Art Deco engagement rings combined modern and historical elements to create something uniquely beautiful.
Today, the Art Deco style is loved for its clean, elegant and sharp features. Art Deco engagement rings are characterised by their angular lines, streamlined silhouettes and geometric shapes with contrasting colour combinations. They remain popular for the following reasons:
Art Deco engagement rings boast historical charm and are crafted using high-quality materials. Opting for a vintage look is the perfect way to represent your enduring love.
They tend to feature beautifully bold gemstones like emeralds, sapphires and rubies, giving them a standout appeal. Prong, cluster and box designs further attract attention to the engagement ring finger.
Geometric shapes don’t have to be square. Many Art Deco engagement rings are oval or circular, offering plenty of options to suit your loved one’s tastes. Art Deco-inspired rings are a stylish alternative to modern pieces and are a fantastic choice if you’re looking for something different.
Although the Art Deco style is distinctive, it’s easy to find wedding bands or other jewellery pieces to complement this style.
Art Deco rings are one of the few types that have maintained popularity throughout the decades and are now in greater demand than ever. If you’re considering an engagement ring in this beautiful style, Rêve Diamonds can help you find the perfect piece or craft a bespoke design just for you.
Finding the Perfect Art Deco Ring
When looking for the perfect engagement ring for your significant other, you should always consider their style and personality. It’s also essential to set your budget in advance and consider the type of features you might be looking for. With Art Deco engagement rings, you’ll want to consider the following:
Platinum and white gold were the most popular materials for making rings during the Art Deco period. At Rêve Diamonds, we have a range of Art Deco designs to suit all tastes, with pieces available in platinum, white gold, yellow gold and rose gold.
Art Deco rings tend to have architecturally-inspired settings, with designs that make a statement. Stones may be circular, rectangular or triangle-shaped. As well as large solitaire diamonds, many Art Deco engagement rings feature triangular or trapezoidal side stones for a glamorous look.
In addition to their bold geometric shapes, Art Deco engagement rings often boast brightly coloured gemstones. Ruby reds, emerald greens and sapphire blues are commonly featured.
Art Deco jewellery is known for being opulent and extravagant, often featuring large stones for an eye-catching appeal. If a large diamond or gemstone is out of your price range, consider recreating the look with a smaller stone set in a large geometric setting like a halo or cushion. You may also consider lab-grown diamonds for impressive size and sparkle at a fraction of the cost.
As well as thinking about stone size, you’ll also need to get the ring size right to ensure the perfect fit. At Rêve Diamonds, we offer a free ring sizing service for you to take advantage of.
