Common Designs and Styles of Art Deco Rings
The Art Deco period began in the year 1915 and continued into the 1930s. Most of the iconic styles were most popular between 1920 and 1930 thanks to a famous Art Deco exposition in Paris which was held in 1925. However, the entire period ranges from 1915 to the mid-1930s. The design features for Art Deco rings were eclectic, geometric and daring in some cases. These rings featured lines and geometric patterns based on natural shapes and themes. The 1920s and 1930s were an age of economic boom, the ‘Flapper’, exploration, travel and new discoveries. At the time the world was in a state of happiness and renewal which heavily influenced Art Deco designs. WWI was over and people were happy to be back at home with their families. Businesses boomed and the social culture reflected these new realities.

Gemstones in Art Deco Rings
During the Art Deco period, yellow gold lost its popularity while platinum, sterling silver and both 14kt and 18kt white gold gained traction. In addition, brilliant diamonds and colored gemstones were commonly used. Art Deco wedding rings were generally made with diamond solitaires that were surrounded by geometric metal designs or even other gemstones. On top of diamonds, other popular gemstones used in these rings included rubies, black onyx, jade, sapphires and emeralds. Mother-of-pearl and crystal were also used in many antique Art Deco engagement rings.
