THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO VINTAGE RING STYLES

HALO STYLE RINGS
Halo style rings are one of the most characteristic vintage ring styles that were dominant in the Art Deco Era. The halo design is so strong that they are still very much in style today. Diamond and sapphire halos are the most popular type of halo ring, but emeralds, rubies and onyx halos are quite commonplace as well. Click images to view more information:

SCROLL MOTIF RINGS
Among the design flourishes in our vintage ring styles guide, the scroll motif is the oldest as it has been a part of jewelry and art for at least three millennia. It more recent times, the Edwardian and Art Deco Eras really placed a strong emphasis on the scroll motif. Although the Edwardian and Art Deco Eras used the scroll motif so differently, their joined focus was enough to bring the scroll motif back into popularity.

BOW MOTIF RINGS
The bow motif is one of the most characteristic flourishes of the Edwardian Era. It already existed and was very popular during the Georgian and Victorian Era, but it hit its stride during the early 1900’s. Although the bow element of the motif is usually expressed in metalwork, it is not uncommon to see the diamonds also play a part of the motif.

FLORAL MOTIF RINGS
There are two types of floral motifs. The more renown version of the floral motif jewelry throughout the art and jewelry world is the asymmetrical version: Art Nouveau. Art Nouveau ran along the same timeline as the Edwardian Era and its design follows the more organic and realistic rendering of the floral structures. During the Art Deco Era, the more interpretive and symmetrical floral designs became very popular, and their design borrowed elements of the floral elements and balanced the shapes against each other.

Monogram necklaces have come into fashion thanks to our most loved celebrities. How did this happen and why? To be fair, all that fashion designers have to do in order to bring a new style into fashion, is to ask the celebs to wear it – and there you have it, a trend is set. This goes for clothing, shoes, bags, jewelry and makeup. Monogram jewelry seems to have taken its natural course through the celebrity world and it is clear that they truly love wearing them, and not just under designers’ pressure. It seems that the general public is inspired by celebrity jewelry and the effect of the monogram necklace has impressed upon everyone.
Celebrity necklaces trends are forever changing and updating from religiously expressive to statement pieces and personalized charms. It’s always a good idea to keep up with the latest trends by reading magazines and articles online so that you know what is in and what is out. Some trends never go out they just lose that originality factor and press coverage over time – therefore you never need to ‘overdo’ something to get the most out of it while it’s at its highest point of ‘trendy’. In fact you should never really overdo anything. A great tip is to always keep your jewelry displayed in moderation with your outfit.
Sentiment & personalization
Monogram necklaces may display your initials or the initials of a loved one, giving the jewelry a lot of sentimental value. I think this is one of the things people love about monograms the most. We love to see our own names displayed in silver or gold, it makes us feel good. It is a piece of identity, a short description of who you are, for all to see, there is an essence of pride. The monogram is a subtle way of expressing your true self.
