Obsession: Elongated Antique Rings


My most favorite ring out of my entire collection is the elongated antique diamond and sapphire ring that I am wearing on my middle finger above.  I remember when I spotted it at a local Pawn Shop, I sort of thought it was too bold for my tiny fingers.  So glad that I took a chance on “something different.”  You should take a chance on a jewelry style that you don’t normally wear.  Whether it be an elongated ring, a bright colorful gemstone mix, a statement necklace, or finally investing in a charm bracelet–you should go for it.  It may end up as your favorite “obsession.”



This ring is the epitome of the Retro Era. It is set in platinum with an Old European cut diamond front and center–0.65 carats! Baguettes fan around, giving it that elongated look I love. From Beladora and priced at $4250.


Pretty Edwardian Era ring, with diamonds and sapphires. The symmetrical design of the ring looks like the doodles I used to draw in High School. The ring is done in 18k yellow gold and priced at $1150. From Israel Rose


The large, round bezel set diamonds on this ring showcase a geometric pattern reminiscent of the Art Deco Era. Of European origin, featuring 14k yellow gold and platinum–total diamond weight is 1.3 carats, and all natural rubies. Price: $8402 from Adin.


The final ring comes from Beladora, and is from the Art Nouveau period. Round, Old Mine cut diamonds and sapphire all set in 14k yellow gold. Price: $1895

{Didn’t set out picking rings from each Era, but it ended up that way. Goes to show how elongated rings were a part of each time period, and will continue to be popular.}
