More Antique Engagement Rings
After yesterday’s post on beautiful antique engagement rings, we decided to follow it up with another post since there were so many beautiful engagement rings to choose from to showcase.
These engagement rings are more straightforward with a classic design that showcases a larger solitaire style center diamond and side diamonds as accents. As if more typical of older engagement rings, the shanks of the rings which we chose to feature are mainly done in platinum rather than gold (which is much more popular these days).
Engagement Ring with Pear Shape Center Diamond
This is a beautiful engagement ring which has been set with a large pear shaped center diamond. This stunning pear cut diamond weighs 3.76 carats, has VS2 clarity and is E color. On either side of the center diamond is a tapered baguette cut diamond which provide extra visual appeal. The shank and mounting of this engagement ring is made from platinum.
Round Cut Diamond Engagement Ring with Side Diamonds
This engagement ring has been set with a fabulous round cut center diamond which weighs 2 carats, is VS1 clarity and E color. Four sets of double claw prongs secure the center diamond in place. A total of six tapered baguette cut diamonds (three on either side of the center diamond) have also been set along the ring’s shoulders. The mounting of this engagement ring is made from platinum.
Solitaire Style Diamond Engagement Ring
This engagement ring was made in the 1950s and was set with a beautiful round cut center diamond of 1.52 carats in weight. Four prongs grasp the center diamond and keep it securely in place. On either side of the center diamond, placed two per side along the shank, are four smaller accent diamonds. The shank of this engagement ring is made with platinum.
Gold & Diamond Engagement Ring
Unlike the other diamond engagement rings which we are featuring today, this ring is made from 14K yellow gold instead of platinum. The 2 carat center diamond has an oval shape and is flanked to either side with a total of 16 princess cut diamonds arranged into four rows running along the shank in a perpendicular manner.
Emerald Cut Diamond Engagement Ring
This is a beautiful engagement ring that has a very 1950s feel to it. The large center diamond is done with an emerald cut and is secured by four sets of double claw prongs. To either side of this center diamond has been set a tapered baguette cut diamond which runs along the platinum shank in parallel. The large center diamond weighs an impressive 6.3 carats.
