VICTORIAN ENGAGEMENT RINGS (1837-1900)
If you’re having a hard time choosing one particular design motif, you’re in good company—the Victorians liked their jewelry as eclectic as it gets, and engagement rings were no exception. Everything from fanciful flora to twining serpents was fair. Diamond solitaires of graceful antique cuts sit in rich, sunny yellow gold settings, or gather together in lines of three or five stones. And the cluster ring, resembling a blooming diamond or gemstone flower, is the ultimate Victorian stunner. Diamonds were not yet the standard for engagement, so all kinds of stones appear in these rings; we recommend sapphires or rubies as the most practical alternatives for daily wear.

EDWARDIAN ENGAGEMENT RINGS (1900-1920)
Gazing into a lacy web of detailed filigree? Chances are, you’re looking at an Edwardian engagement ring. These lovely, feminine settings feature intricately pierced and millegrained mountings, often dotted with diamonds. Though they appear light and airy, with alluringly curved lines and openwork, durable platinum keeps them very wearable. The sweetness of their designs is balanced out by their strong, often wide profile on the finger and their liberal use of bright white diamonds. If your vibe is equal parts pretty and powerful, this may be the era for you.

ART DECO ENGAGEMENT RINGS (1920's-1930's)
They didn’t call it the Jazz Age for nothing—these sleek and chic engagement rings follow their own fascinating rhythm. Geometric lines and streamlined designs give the Art Deco its signature bold appeal. Architectural styles emulate city skylines as jewelers finally embraced a high-tech aesthetic. Though the Art Deco is certainly more leather than lace, its timeless sophistication make it a great fit for a wide range of tastes. We don’t even try to hide the fact that we love this style, and Art Deco engagement rings always feature prominently in our collection.

RETRO ENGAGEMENT RINGS (1940-1950)
All the glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Age shines from these dramatic beauties. Though we see fewer engagement rings from the relatively brief Retro era, their distinctive lines and asymmetry leave a strong impression. During the Second World War, platinum was reserved for strategic purposes, and the look-alike precious metal palladium took its place. An engagement ring in this special material is a piece of wearable history, with a significance known only to its lucky new owner. Sweet and inventive Retro wedding sets evoke a return to home and family, and new lives begun together going into the second half of the twentieth century. Combine high glam with a love of history, and you’ll find yourself falling for this short-lived but very stylish era.

MID-CENTURY ENGAGEMENT RINGS (1950s-1960s)
Go big or go home! Whether it’s the actual size of the diamond (which it quite often was), or the free-form swirl of the ring’s design, the fabulous fifties had no qualms about embracing opulence. The optimism of the post-war era shines irresistibly from these brilliant showstoppers. If “more is more” sounds like your jewelry philosophy, you may want to research—on the finger, of course—some Mid-Century engagement rings. We guarantee it won’t feel like homework!
