The Glorious Elegance of Vintage Engagement Rings

Aug. 28 2014
Decadent, opulent and elegant are the best ways to describe art-deco inspired vintage engagement rings. And owning one today is definitely possible!

Sophie Breitmeyer has turned capturing the exquisite elegance and decadence of the Art-Deco period quite literally into a form of art. Each one of her vintage engagement rings exudes luxury and celebrates the designs and techniques used in bygone days.

I can see that L is drawn to Sophie’s rings as they perfectly suit her desire for the ultimate bling that is neither ostentatious nor overbearing.

Sophie’s unique approach to commissioned vintage engagement rings is both clever and refreshing.

Although this designer is a self-admitted traditionalist she takes great pride in adding modern touches to her pieces that may be so subtle that only the couple for whom the ring was created might be privy to the details. To me this adds a surprising level of meaning and intimacy to each commissioned piece.

Sophie’s passion for coloured diamonds only proves to enhance their vintage appeal. In a very Art-Deco influenced way Sophie embraces geometric form and patterns with puzzle-like precision and they are all built with magnificent sumptuously coloured diamonds.

One of her commissioned vintage engagement rings, typical of her style, featured a rich brown coloured oval diamond with smaller geometrically shaped diamonds clustered around it.

This particular piece could easily have come straight from Daisy Buchanan’s collection as portrayed in the Great Gatsby.
