Retro Edwardian-Inspired Diamond and Sapphire Engagement Ring (Vintage)
We once had a tour guide in Rome tell us there is nothing new under the sun. Meaning everything has already been tried. Been there, done that and bought the t-shirt. And she may just be right. So maybe that’s why every generation likes to harken back to earlier times in some of their designs. This Edwardian diamond and sapphire engagement ring appears to be Edwardian, but in reality, it came into being around the mid-20th century. As crazy as that sounds, it’s really not that uncommon. Why wouldn’t the folks of the mid-century hold the Edwardian designs in high regard? High enough to emulate them, as a matter of a fact.
What We Love About It:
For starters, we love the fact that folks in the 1950’s were so taken with the Edwardian period, they created a ring to look as if it was made during that time. But the super sparkly half-carat center diamond being saluted by the triangular sapphires is a theme we never tire of.
Our Edwardian diamond and sapphire ring is crafted in 14kt white gold and holds a .50ct (H/SI2) round brilliant cut diamond, surrounded by six synthetic triangular cut sapphires, all bead set. The gallery of the ring is full of filigree, some portions in the shapes of flowers and others as scrolls. This is not a ring for someone who works daily with their hands but for someone who wears their ring occasionally or has a cushy desk job, she’s a real stunner. She weighs in at 2.7g and is currently a size 8 US but could easily be sized up or down by our jeweler (see options and pricing in this listing) or by yours.
Just like love is love is love, so vintage is vintage is vintage. No matter if it represents the ear in which it was created or one that has gone before.
