Vintage Motifs: Unexpected Accents


We all know that I love vintage and antique rings–but not all are created equal. Rings with unexpected colored stone accents are sure to catch your eye.  This style became very popular during the Art Deco Era, 1920s-1930s. The pop of color interrupted the typical “white-on-white” look that was en vogue, created during the Edwardian Era. Platinum and diamonds were still used, however French or Swiss cut accent stones like Onyx, Sapphire, Ruby and Emerald were the new thing. The rings below demonstrate this vintage motif–all of which can be purchased at Adin.
