The Sculptural Beauty of Vintage Engagement Rings

Aug. 28 2014
One of the signature features found on most vintage engagement rings is the stunning use of shape and pattern to create one beautifully sculpted piece.

F and I have always appreciated the vintage engagement ring look for the simple fact that each piece seems to be a story-filled miniature work of art. Designer Melanie Eddy has taken this concept to a whole new level and each one of her creations is a mini sculptural explosion of gemstones and rich metals.

Art-Deco inspired vintage engagement rings share a common stylistic trait of embracing geometric forms and patterns with exquisitely fashioned metalwork and precision placement of vividly coloured gemstones. They are perfectly put together visual puzzles ranging from elaborately intricate to beautiful celebrations of simple forms.

Melanie’s sculptural pieces harnesses these pure, sleek lines of geometric shapes and gives them life within a ring.

In terms of aesthetics encapsulating truly heart-felt meaning the vintage engagement ring has it all. One of Melanie’s pieces utilizes the way colour combinations and form can evoke different emotions.

This particularly unique creation pairs the rich vivid purple of an amethyst with the warm glow of rose gold.

The form of both the stone and the metal band is simultaneously angular yet curvaceous creating a beautiful, aesthetically appealing ring that certainly stands out from the crowd.
