|Jewellery and rings produced from 1910 – 1935 are classified as belonging to the Art Deco Jewellery period. The Art Deco Engagement Ring and Jewellery style incorporate simple geometric shapes with long sweeping lines, creating possibly the most instantly recognisable style of jewellery. Designs were inspired by architectural and automotive designs, such as the famous Chrysler Building in New York.
Art Deco Engagement Ring and Jewellery designers captured these geometric shapes in their designs, adding curves and long lines to bracelets, rings, earrings and necklaces. The leading designers of the Art Deco Jewellery period include well know names like Louis Cartier and Rene Lalique.
Art Deco Engagement Rings were often designed with a square band and an intricate collection of precious metal and stones. During the Art Deco Jewellery period white gold and platinum were often replaced yellow gold, reflecting the sheer architectural styles of the time. Designs also incorporated square stones surrounded with smaller stones, and the baguette cut was introduced for diamonds.
