Art Deco rings are typically comprised of distinct geometric shapes. Due to the large influence of shapes in the Art Deco period, often large central gemstones such as sapphires, rubies and emeralds will be used, in addition to diamonds. The bold and architectural nature of some rings are reflected in the use of symmetry and halo settings.
Art Deco jewellery became more cost effective due to the commercial sale of white gold in 1912, which reached popularity in the 1920s. However the use of platinum was still the height of fashion, with few Art Deco pieces being displayed in yellow gold; a refreshing change from the 70-year old trend of the Victorian era.
Art Deco rings have gained popularity due to the nature of the large central stones, further ornamented with the additional encompassing setting. The use of shapes bears timeless classic manners and due to these styles an engagement ring may look more unique than the traditional solitaire.
Within the Edwardian period the use of pearls and diamonds was a primary look, whereas the pop of colour available from an Art Deco ring can create an instant conversation starter when wearing a cocktail or dress ring.
