Washington, DC engagement rings: A collection of timeless beauty
We have been buying, selling, and collecting some of the most unique jewelry in the country for over 130 years. The rich history of this city and the people that travel through have allowed us to curate an ever-changing collection of fascinating pieces.
Jewelry trends tend to change over the years, but the charm of vintage pieces transcends time. There’s something so special about a piece with a past. Our collection of engagement rings, earrings, necklaces, brooches, and more come from various eras including:
- Art Deco (1920-1935): Clean, rigid, geometric shapes made with pearls, gemstone mosaics, lacquer, and invisible setting. This jewelry was meant to be simple, elegant, and practical.
- Retro (1940s): Plastic, glass, wood, enamel, and synthetic stones with motifs of animals, bows, and flowers were used to make eye-catching costume jewelry. Charm bracelets, cocktail rings, and bold stackable bangles were popular.
- Mid-Century (1950s): Costume jewelry from the Retro era was refined and produced with expensive materials. Large, colorful gemstones surrounded by diamonds and long strings of real pearls were popular.
- Modern (1960s-present): This era encapsulates all of the trends that came with the 90s, 80s, and on. Jewelry has seen more and more commonalities with sculpture and design.
