Engagement Ring Trends - Modern Vintage

Rebecca Smith
Browse By Engagement Ring Collection

In recent years the sleek framed look of our rub over set engagement rings has been softened through the use of beading tools giving rise to our latest Engagement Ring Trends – Modern Vintage. Our journey with this design began with a clients brief: Lacy, fine, floral, decorative were the words we came up with to describe his girlfriends, soon to be fiancee’s taste. This was the rings that inspired many others!

Once this ring was photographed we started to get requests for personalised versions using the same theme. The beading technique used to give these rings their vintage feel requires an edge to work rather than a flat so all the rings have a trillion shaped shank to accommodate this. A trillion is a triangle with curved sides. Stylistically this makes the ring shank look narrower than it really is.

These are some of our bespoke personalised evolution’s of the engagement ring itself. Changes in stone shape, setting style and gemstone. pictured we have a round brilliant cut diamond, a princess cut champagne diamond and a sapphire. Mostly the rings are handmade in platinum but we also had some rose gold and yellow gold requests.

Beading has been applied to precious metal for thousands of years for decorative and strengthening reasons. It can be seen in celtic and roman 22ct gold jewellery. Beading or “Graining” can be confused with pave setting which is use in the rings below. the grains in pave setting are raised from the metal in order to retain a gemstone or diamond. Beading has a purely decorative function. It was last popular in the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

Of course there are many era’s of history that can inspire us today. look out for our Art Deco Collection! All our contemporary classics take a theme from history and take it back to it’s simplest form using heavier weight materials?
