Triumphant Love: Art Deco Engagement Rings from the 1930’s! Inspired by “It Happened One Night”

Love was triumphant for Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert in “It Happened One Night” – the classic 1934 movie about unlikely love. While this movie does involve the character of Ellie Andrews (Colbert) in a breathtaking wedding dress, you’ll have to watch the movie yourself to see if a wedding takes place. You simply can’t plan a wedding like that without an equally gorgeous wedding ring, of course.

Rings of the 1930’s were greatly done in the Art Deco style, which focuses on geometric shapes. At the time of this movie, Art Deco was still greatly popular. If you take a look at some of these Art Deco rings that I’ve picked out, I think you’ll see why. They make quite a statement.

In the spirit of love and weddings, here is one of my favorite quotes from It Happened One Night:

Ellie Andrews: Yes. Haven’t you ever thought about it at all? It seems to me you, you could make some girl wonderfully happy.
Peter Warne: Sure I’ve thought about it. Who hasn’t? If I could ever meet the right sort of girl. Aw, where you gonna find her? Somebody that’s real. Somebody that’s alive. They don’t come that way anymore. Have I ever thought about it? I’ve even been sucker enough to make plans. You know, I saw an island in the Pacific once. I’ve never been able to forget it. That’s where I’d like to take her. She’d have to be the sort of a girl who’d… well, who’d jump in the surf with me and love it as much as I did. You know, nights when you and the moon and the water all become one. You feel you’re part of something big and marvelous. That’s the only place to live… where the stars are so close over your head you feel you could reach up and stir them around. Certainly, I’ve been thinking about it. Boy, if I could ever find a girl who was hungry for those things…
