The 20’s Are In (The Roaring 20’s, That Is)
We’re seeing a trend in jewelry and engagement rings that is unprecedented. Brides are ditching the overused diamond ensemble and opting instead for an opulent alternative: art deco rings. They say it started with Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson, but these regal and timeless designs have been worn on the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Lucille Ball. In fact, it was Liz Taylor who started the sapphire craze in the early 50s, upon her engagement to Michael Wilding. Her stunning, deep blue sapphire was flanked by diamonds and certainly captivated the hearts of movie goers. Even Lucille Ball opted for a breathtaking aquamarine that was picked out by Desi Arnaz.
Something Borrowed From Time
Some brides are hesitant to do away with the traditional diamond–after all, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. That’s why we’ve curated a mesmerizing collection of vintage, art deco rings featuring a variety of precious stones and metals with diamond accents. You’ll have the glimmer and effervescence of the diamond, coupled with the luscious color of a precious gemstone.
