Celebrity Antique/Antique Inspired Engagement Rings

It’s been while since I last posted about celebrity engagement rings (Celebrity Antique Engagement Rings and Celebrity Antique Inspired Engagement Rings). I still get excited when I see a celebrity with an antique/antique inspired engagement ring. They are all unique and beautiful. Here are more for your viewing pleasure!

Jason Sudeikis proposed to Olivia Wilde with an eye catching unique diamond and emerald halo ring set in yellow gold and platinum.

Alexis Bedel received an antique/antique inspired engagement ring from her Mad Men co-star, Vincent Kartheiser. The ring seems to be set in platinum with an octagon shaped bezel holding a round diamond and a few small diamond details on the thin band.

Adam Levine popped the question on one knee to model, Behati Pinsaloo, with a beautiful 1930s antique diamond ring. The band has delicate filigree detailing.

Romain Dauriac, a French journalist, proposed to Scarlett Johansson with an unique rectangular shaped Art Deco diamond ring. The ring features three vertically set round diamonds surrounded by smaller diamonds. I particularly love her ring because it is a similar design to my antique Art Deco engagement ring!

Sacha Baron Cohen proposed to Isla Fisher with an antique/antique inspired diamond ring (pictured with her wedding bands). The ring has lovely diamond detailing on the sides.

Mary-Kate Olsen received a vintage yellow gold diamond and sapphire engagement ring from Olivier Sarkozy. It is reportedly a 1950s Cartier ring with a four carat old European cut centre stone, surrounded by a sapphire halo, held by a diamond encrusted basket in the shape of petals.

Evan Ross proposed to Ashlee Simpsons with a custom made vintage inspired ruby and diamond ring from Neil Lane. The ring is made up of a five carat marquise cut center diamond surrounded by rubies and smaller diamonds to bring out the center stone. It is set in yellow gold and platinum.

Resettings rings

I had a stone reset and a ring remade so I can now stack and wear them with my wedding ring. The jeweler did a wonderful job!

One of my old rings (pictured below on the left), although really beautiful and unique, is thick and doesn’t go well with my wedding ring which is why I had the diamond reset into a thin 18k rose gold bezel ring (pictured below on the right). The glowing rich colour of the gold really makes the diamond stand out.

I also had a really old busy yellow gold flower ruby ring (pictured below on the left) remade into a single ruby twisted stacking ring (pictured below on the right). The marquise ruby was set east-west and the gold was reused.

Below are my thin yellow and rose gold rings together. I just purchased a plain thin yellow gold twisted band and plain thin yellow gold band on Etsy. I plan to wear the rings above with them and stack them together on my wedding ring finger. Can’t wait to get stacking!

Antique Art Deco Engagement Rings

The style of Art Deco originated from Paris and was developed between the 1920s to 1930s. Art Deco engagement rings were usually colourful, geometric, decorative, and architectural. Platinum was the popular choice of metal, and the rings usually held a centre gem surrounded symmetrically with more gems. Diamond was the most  dominant gem used in Art Deco jewellery. However, many colourful gems such as sapphires, rubies, and emeralds were also commonly used. The unique designs and dazzling gems of art deco engagement rings are so breathtaking to look at. Here are a number of beautiful antique art deco engagement rings that I found on Etsy.
