Retro is in, and the art deco style diamond engagement ring conjures up images of days gone by. This style originated in the 1920’s and 30’s, during the age of flappers, the machine age and “all that jazz”. It is characterized by its geometric shape and symmetry. Art Deco jewelry consists of arcs, circles, triangles and squares rectangles and arcs. It is often featured in black and white or black and red. Some pieces were made into pins or brooches that were shaped into flowers, insects or plants.


Old mine cut diamonds and European cuts were very popular and mounted into rings with contrasting rubies, emeralds, turquoise and other gemstones. Some wedding sets were made with embellishment and unusual designs. In the 1920’s new diamond cutting techniques were developed that allowed for shapes that would add to this enhanced geometric flair.

Today we can achieve the same look using modern ideal cut diamonds. As they say “everything old is new again”! It is believed that if you save something long enough then it comes back in style, and of course, some things never really go out of fashion, like diamonds! The vintage look is still unmistakable with its finely worked and ornate crafting. The contrast of platinum or white gold combined with diamonds and gemstones is the signature look of many these styles.


The antique engagement ring and wedding band represents the height of sophistication to some modern women as well. The diamonds in these styles can be large ones, or small but tasteful and the setting often draws the most attention. The Whiteflash “Filigree in Bloom” diamond wedding band is a perfect example with its beautiful lacework. In addition, our “Delicate Blush” mixes 18K White and Rose gold for a vintage look and also features has a matching band with the same intricate design. The beautiful “Coeur de Clara Ashley” 3-stone diamond ring is also stunning in its elaborate design.
