Vintage Inspired Gold Engagement Rings
As soon as Alexis Dove told L about her passion for vintage design I knew I wouldn’t be able to get a word in edgeways. With her passion for the romance of gone-by times, L could talk about her love for vintage jewellery for hours.
I am quite partial to a bit of vintage design myself, but what intrigued me the most about this particular design was the use of beaten gold. Engagement rings purchased from the high street don’t usually have such unusual textures like this, and the more of Alexis’ designs I looked at the more I saw of this beaten and hammered effect. I think it really helps with the vintage feel and I know Alexis is passionate about her designs looking authentic.
An element of this design that really stood out to me was the use of a peach sapphire gemstone. I don’t think I’ve seen a peach sapphire up close before and it really added the touch of femininity that Alexis is known for.
The subtle colouring of the sapphire works really well with the beaten gold engagement ring’s finish and looks very vintage.
The sapphire is also cut into the style of a Victorian old cut, one of Alexis’ specialties. Overall, the gold and peach design is very antique-looking and charming. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for beaten gold again as the effect is really growing on me. Alexis certainly knows what she’s doing when it comes to creating something quirky and unique.
