Let’s shop for Downton Abbey rings! | Art Deco Ring Styles

Downton Abbey takes place during the 1920’s, so we’re on the hunt for 1920’s rings. That falls in the realm of the Art Deco jewelry period, which was strongly defined by geometric shapes and strong lines. I’ve even put together a bit of a refresher for you guys:

What was 1920’s jewelry like?

  • Geometric shapes like triangles, pentagons, and trapezoids
  • Bold edges
  • Strongly contrasted color combinations with gems of ruby, onyx, sapphire, and emerald.
  • Design names of the day: Cartier, Van Cleef and Arpels, Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli.
  • Sleek, streamlined appearance
  • Straight lines

Art Deco Ring Styles

  • Art Deco Ring Styles for gem cuts: Emerald, Asscher or Radiant
  • Pave set diamonds
  • Use of Platinum

Art Deco Rings – Shopping Time!

What we’re looking at today are real, antique art deco rings made with actual diamonds. But I’m also looking for rings that can be worn for any occasion, and aren’t just engagement rings. Although Lady Mary and the other Crawley sisters all had to make marriage a priority on their minds, we luckily don’t have to think about marrying someone at all times.  So, forget about a single diamond for that left-hand. Let’s just look at pretty rings for any finger, any occasion, and from anyonewho wants to buy us fancy rings. Honestly, sometimes I just like to extend my fingers and imagine what it would feel like to wear some of these rings.
