One thing to keep in mind when shopping for a great engagement ring: you don’t have to focus only on the center stone. Side stones can add beauty and size to any ring and can make a super unique piece! Side stones are also an opportunity to add color, aesthetic design features, and dramatic sparkle. Here are five vintage engagement rings with side stones from our collection that we love!
Art Deco Sophistication
Our Lottie engagement ring showcases the elegant possibilities of side stone designs. The 1.17 ct. Old European cut centerpiece diamond would be a showstopper by itself, but the 0.25 ct. sparklers at each side really add to the glamour! Millegrain bezel settings, hand engravings down the shank, and a gallery of scrolling open metal work further amplify the beauty of these diamonds. The overall look is one of chic sophistication!
To say our Josephine engagement ring is “breathtaking” does not come close to capturing the magic of this 1920s masterpiece! At the center is a gorgeous 3.04 ct. GIA certified diamond. It is flanked north-and-south by two square cut emeralds for a dash of dramatic color. To the east and west are twin clusters of staggered baguette cut diamonds, adding a flash of geometric Art Deco style. To finish off this beautiful ring, 16 single cut diamonds decorate the outer edge. The size and glamour of this vintage engagement ring with side stones make an unmistakable impression!
Elegant baguettes in descending sizes adorn the sides of our spectacular Kimberly engagement ring. The baguettes steer focus toward the impressive center stone—a large 2.54 ct. Old European cut diamond in a platinum box setting while adding sleek glamour. This ring has an impressive sense of drama that is filled with the love of several generations.
Our Scarlett engagement ring is a stunning late Edwardian / early Art Deco design from 1915. This vintage engagement ring with side stones features a central 0.85 ct. Old European cut diamond held in a 12-prong platinum setting. For dazzling extra sparkle, 32 single cut diamonds are set into the surrounding setting and around the center stone and descend gracefully down the shank as well. Millegrain details and intricate open metalwork further embellish a look that is magnificent and romantic. All of the diamonds are incredibly bright for an eye-grabbing look!
Looking for a ring that adds side stones to a more traditional solitaire design? Our Kiera engagement ring offers the best of both worlds. The central 1.60 ct. cushion cut diamond stands out, cradled in a platinum four-split-prong setting. The beautiful side stones are sophisticated rose cut diamonds lining the shank. Fine millegrain details and delicate fluting add a subtle note of femininity. Solitaire perfection!
