antique platinum & diamond engagement rings

Platinum and diamond engagement rings are simply classic! Rings featuring platinum settings began to appear with increasing frequency beginning in the Edwardian period. New jewelry making techniques allowed platinum to be worked with greater precision, unlocking the creativity of ring designers and jewelry makers. This style quickly grew to popularity and is still in high demand today! To help you in your search for the perfect ring, here are five vintage platinum & diamond engagement rings that we absolutely love!

Art Deco Delight

Just look at this stunner! The Coco engagement ring comes from the high point of the Art Deco Era, circa 1930. The centerpiece stone is a sizeable 2.23 ct transitional cut diamond that is an immediate eye-catcher. But the amazing thing about this ring is that the setting boasts a sleek, low profile despite the main diamond’s size. Platinum bezel features, subtle millegrain and delicate floral engravings down the shank add an extra touch of elegance, while a geometric arrangement of baguettes celebrates the iconic Art Deco style. This piece is glamorous and unique—an incredible platinum and diamond engagement ring!

Traditional Elegance

The Willow engagement ring demonstrates that simple and gorgeous can easily go hand in hand. This 1930’s Tiffany & Co. engagement ring features a lovely 1.91 ct Old European cut diamond that makes an unforgettable first impression with its bright white E color! This large stone is held in a tab-style four-prong platinum setting with four bead-set diamonds on either side. Delicate millegrain detailing shows off this ring's Art Deco pedigree. The style is very traditional yet with unique embellishments and that create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece!

Endless Romance
