Our vintage and antique-style engagement rings are inspired by styles that were crafted from the mid-1800s to 1980. The expert team at Shane Co. designed our vintage-style engagement rings to reflect the most popular and gorgeous design elements from this time frame. Victorian-era engagement rings were referenced first. This era includes all of the rings that were created between 1837 and 1901. Victorian-era antique engagement rings were most popular for their halo settings and the use of yellow gold. Between 1901 and 1910, the Edwardian era popularized a new style of vintage floral engagement rings. These rings were cut in the shapes of flowers and started the trend of using platinum metal as the setting. After the Edwardian era came the time of vintage Art Deco engagement rings. From 1915 to the end of the 1930s, these symmetrical geometric rings, often with colored gemstones, reigned supreme. In the 1940s, also known as the retro era, white, yellow, and rose gold became the trendy new settings that we still see today. The mid-century era came next. From the early 1950s to the 1980s, bold, show-stopping rings and diamond stones were the style. Each of these design elements is reflected in Shane Co.’s collection of vintage engagement rings.
