What are Art Deco Engagement Rings?
Art Deco engagement rings are vintage engagement rings from the Art Deco period which occurred in the early 1900s. Art Deco is short for the French word Arts Décoratifs which means “decorative art.” This style was developed by the unique artists who became popular during this period when French nationalism grew as a response to a rise in German imports. Deco is a combination of rich materials and modernist styles. In its peak of popularity, it represented glamour and luxury as well as the technological progress at the time.
The art and jewelry from this period are characterized by sharp lines, striking symbols, prominent angles and bold geometric shapes. A unique feature of Deco engagement rings is the brightly colored center stones often used to complement the sharp, stylized designs of the rings.
