The grandeur of the Titanic. The exquisite nature of Downton Abbey. The turn of the 20th century was arguably one of the most opulent and refined decades in recent history. It’s so stunning that media depicting that time period continues to capture the imagination. If you’re looking for a piece of jewelry that will excite true romantics, you’ll find it in our stylish collection of 1910s engagement rings.
Created during the period between the Edwardian Era and Art Deco Era, the rings you will find here recall the unmistakable beauty and glamour of the early 20th century. While there are many unique styles to discover, here are some standout features:
- European Cut Diamonds. Unlike today, each individual diamond was hand-cut by skilled craftsmen in the 1910s. These old European cut diamonds feature larger facets than modern diamonds, and some experts believe this provides these antique gemstones with an “inner fire” that can no longer be found in modern diamonds.
- Pearls & Colorful Gemstones. Although diamonds were a popular choice when crafting engagement rings during this decade, there are also plenty of styles to choose from that include colorful gemstones like amethyst, sapphires, rubies, pearls and more.
- Opulent Platinum Settings. Incredibly popular with European royals at the end of the 1800s, platinum was the metal of choice when creating engagement rings in 1910s. Its durable nature and silver luster continue to delight the senses.
- Art Nouveau. Engagement rings from this time period are influenced by Art Nouveau, a design movement that was popular at the turn of the 20th century. Subtle curves and designs that are almost organic in nature give these rings an effortless elegance.
