Vintage & Antique Style Lab Diamond Engagement Rings

This collection features a range of vintage, antique inspired designs, from delicate filigree patterns to intricate art deco motifs and each ring is handcrafted by skilled artisans to the highest standards.

Our antique art-deco inspired rings are elegant and sophisticated, reflecting the glamour of the 1920s. The geometric shapes and intricate designs exemplify the beauty of this era, and evoke a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era. 

For those who prefer a more natural aesthetic, our vintage style engagement rings also feature organic shapes and designs. These rings have a rustic, bohemian feel, reminiscent of nature and the outdoors. 

Additionally, our vintage and antique inspired engagement rings can be set with lab grown coloured gemstones or fancy diamonds, adding a unique and vibrant touch to the design. Coloured gemstones are a popular choice for engagement rings, as they offer a pop of colour and personalisation. 

Sapphires, with their rich blue hue, are a classic option for vintage inspired engagement rings. They symbolise loyalty and trust, making them a meaningful choice for a lifelong commitment. Other popular gemstone choices include emeralds, rubies, and fancy coloured diamonds. Whether you're drawn to the boldness of an emerald or the romantic allure of a ruby, incorporating a coloured gemstone into your vintage inspired engagement ring will ensure that it stands out from the crowd. 

Our engagement rings are meticulously crafted, using only ethically sourced materials. Each ring is designed with precision and attention to detail, resulting in a piece that is truly special. We will create beautiful jewellery taking inspiration from the past while still being conscious of our impact on the environment. We strive to reduce our carbon footprint in the production of our jewellery by using diamonds and gemstones grown aboveground using renewable energy where possible.

By choosing one of our vintage or antique style engagement rings, you can feel confident that you're getting a beautiful piece of jewellery whilst supporting positive change within the jewellery industry.

Celebrities have always been trendsetters when it comes to fashion and style, and their choice of jewellery is no exception. High profile people who have chosen vintage inspired diamond engagement rings include Kate Middleton, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Katy Perry, Mila Kunis, Mary-Kate Olsen and Margot Robbie.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are art deco inspired rings a good choice for an engagement ring?

Art deco rings are a style known for their elegance, geometric patterns, and bold designs, making them a popular choice for those who want a unique and eye-catching engagement ring.

Art deco engagement rings often feature intricate metalwork, geometric shapes and accent stones such as diamonds or coloured gemstones. These rings can be dazzling and stand out from the traditional solitaire engagement rings, making them perfect for someone who appreciates vintage or retro aesthetics.

Additionally, art deco inspired rings have a timeless quality to them, as they were popular in the 1920s and 1930s, and continue to be admired for their beauty and craftsmanship. They are a great choice for individuals who want a ring that will never go out of style.

What's the difference between vintage and antique or art deco style engagement rings?

Art deco style engagement rings are inspired by the art and design movement of the 1920s and 1930s. They are known for their geometry, symmetrical designs, and bold aesthetics. Art deco rings are often intricate with filigree or milgrain detailing and may incorporate gemstones or accent diamonds.

Vintage style engagement rings encompass a broader range of designs and eras. Vintage rings can include styles from the Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco periods, as well as retro styles from the mid-20th century. Each era has its own distinctive design features and characteristics.

The main difference between vintage and art deco style engagement rings lies in their design aesthetics. Art deco rings typically have a more angular and geometric look, with bold lines and symmetrical patterns. Vintage rings, on the other hand, may have more delicate and intricate details, with floral motifs, scrollwork, or whimsical designs.

In summary, art deco style engagement rings are a specific subset of vintage rings that draw inspiration from the 1920s and 1930s art deco movement. Vintage rings encompass a broader range of styles from different eras and design influences.
