A brief article on Art Deco diamond engagement rings:
The Art Deco period was between the 1920â€™s to the 1940â€™s and was as popular today in style and design as when they were made all those years ago.
Commonly made in gold or platinum or a combination of both, platinum was very popular during this period as it is a very pure white metal that is wonderful to work with to obtain very fine intricate detail.
With a combination of older cut diamonds re-set into rings or the â€śnewerâ€ť round brilliant cut diamond that was being perfected in the early 20th century, the use of other gemstones such as rubies and sapphires is also commonly seen in many Art Deco engagement rings.
Quite often Art Deco jewellery including engagement rings, display a wonderful geometric symmetry that has never gone out of fashion and is a characteristic of many Art Deco engagement rings which can be seen in this Art Deco diamond engagement ring from the 1920’s.
