The mid-twentieth century, roughly from the late 1940s and early 1950s through 1970, was an era of changing jewelry designs, and mid-century engagement rings reflect those changes. Early in the era, more classic, feminine designs with fluid patterns were most popular, and diamonds were preferred. In the 1960s, more colorful rings emerged to represent the free spirit of the decade, and bolder, more geometric lines were popular. Both decades emphasized personal flair, however, and very distinctive rings are characteristic of the era. Diamonds could be paired with gemstones for more colorful rings, and accent stones helped add extra sparkle to more elaborate designs, though simple solitaires were still popular as well. Yellow and white gold were the most popular metals, though platinum was also featured in many rings. Top jewelry designers all contributed to the mid-century era, and vintage designs from Bulgari, Tiffany, and Harry Winston remain popular as vintage pieces even today. A mid-century engagement ring brings classic elegance to your relationship with quality, workmanship, and distinction that is sure to make an impression well into this century and beyond.
