Art Deco Ring Designs
As decorative arts reached their peak in popularity and taste during the 1920s and 1930s, the period known as 'Art Deco' was born. In the Art Deco era, jewellery was designed to reflect the optimism and fun of the 'roaring twenties', while also reflecting women's increased independence.
During the period of this artistic movement, there was a shift away from the traditional nature-inspired motifs of the previous periods and a larger focus on simplicity, in the form of geometric shapes and bold colourful gemstones.
In our collection of Art Deco antique rings, you'll find bold, abstract and distinctive ring designs that reflect those period trends. Discover the distinctive details and styles of our rings' various periods on the 'About Periods’ page.

Vintage Art Deco Rings FAQs
Art Deco rings are characterised by their use of geometric shapes and distinctive patterns and gemstones of contrasting shades. Combining minimal details with bold colours, the vintage rings of this period feature clean lines and geometric shapes, as well as bold gemstones.
Edwardian-era jewellery is characterised by its delicate use of the colour white and its use of elongated oval shapes. Cartier's innovation in platinum craftsmanship made it possible to create more elaborate and intricate details. These included filigree, millegrain, and fretwork that mirror fine fabrics of the era.
Victorian-era rings are characterised by the three defining periods during the monarch, Queen Elizabath’s reign. Victorian jewellery from the Romantic period was heavily influenced by Queen Victoria’s successful courtship with her husband Albert and thus, stylistically featured symbols of love and romance. Conversely, Victorian jewellery designed in the Grand period reflected themes of grief, in the wake of the passing of the monarch’s husband. Styles in this period were sombre, often featuring black gemstones such as onyx, along with black enamel. Victorian era jewellery created in the Aesthetic period were influenced by the monarch’s excitement towards the future and typically featured lighter and more practical designs, in contrast to earlier styles.
Georgian jewellery is distinguished by its incredibly ornate metalwork. This level of artistry could only be achieved by hand fabrication. Conversely, Edwardian-era jewellery is characterised by its delicate use of the colour white and its use of elongated oval shapes.
Art Nouveau jewellery is characterised by its use of soft and organic figures and curved lines, as well as its use of floral patterns, vines, and leaves.
It is often the gemstone that determines how tough an antique ring is. For example, Diamonds have a rating of 10 on the Mohs scale, making them extremely tough gemstones. Additionally, ruby and sapphire gemstones have a Mohs hardness rating of 9 out of 10.
A high rating on the Mohs scale indicates that a degree of toughness is present, meaning it has no tendency to cleave when struck. Due to their durability, these gemstone is a great choice for rings and other pieces of jewellery that are worn on a regular basis.
In terms of sustainability, purchasing antique and vintage rings rather than a new ring can reduce your carbon footprint. As a result, it makes more sense to reuse valuable gemstones such as gold and diamonds rather than mining new ones.
With this in mind, purchasing antique rings and vintage rings is considerably better as it mitigates the damage done to the environment from the effects of mining practices.
