Platinum Engraved Engagement Ring Circa 1920

The Phoenix ring is a platinum engraved engagement ring from the Art Deco Era, circa 1920! The ring centers a GIA Certified 1.17 carat old European cut diamond of H color, VVS2 clarity. The diamond is set in a platinum setting with 4 prongs in the N-S-E-W orientation. A single diamond stud adorns the center diamond to each side within a beautifully hand-engraved band. The ring is size 5.25 and can be resized!

Why We Love It

That diamond is absolutely stunning, super white, and very clear! The old European cut gives the stone the prettiest of patterns with unique faceting! The setting is simple with perfect prongs and a gorgeous Art Deco band! And let’s talk about those engravings for a second, shall we? With a lovely pattern of flowers and leaves bordered by fine millegrain detail, these hand-engravings mark this ring as a distinct vintage treasure. While the organic design hints at an earlier Edwardian inspiration, the compact, modern setting is unmistakably Art Deco, making this ring one for the ages!

7 Reasons We Love Platinum!

If you’re looking for a white-colored metal in a vintage engagement ring, you’ve got three options: white gold, silver, and platinum. So what sets platinum apart? This metal was especially popular during the Art Deco Era, when jewelers were looking for the right balance between silken elegance and solid, sleek modernism. It looks great and feels even better. Here are 7 more reasons you’ll love a platinum engagement ring:

  • More durable than gold
  • More dense than gold, giving it a satisfying weight
  • A durable, secure setting for the diamond
  • Stays white & keeps your diamond looking white, too!
  • Low-maintenance and requires very little polishing
  • Hypoallergenic, perfect for those with other metal allergies

Because of its durability, platinum will look great for years to come, making it highly suitable for vintage jewelry. Over time, platinum also develops a patina, giving it a soft glow! As we can see in this gorgeous platinum engraved engagement ring, it stays white and showcases its engravings clearly, even after almost a hundred years!

A. Yes! We offer one complimentary resizing and MOST rings can be resized. Each additional resize is $80. Contact us to see if a certain ring can be sized to your preference! Keep in mind that resizing can take up to a 1 week. 

Q: Do you do custom work?

Q: What about diamond certification?

A. We wrote a whole page on your questions on diamond certification here!

Q: What is your return policy?

A. We are on a mission to pair people with their Dream Ring! If you are not happy with your purchase, we accept returns within 5 days of receiving the ring. Contact us and we will send you a return label to ship it back. Once we receive the ring in its original condition then we will issue a full refund. It may take a few days for the funds to show up in your account depending on your bank.

Q: What types of payments do you accept?

A. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, certified check, bank transfer, and Affirm. Important note if you are using a credit/debit card: Most banks impose a spending limit so you may have to contact them to have that changed for a purchase or to let them know that you are making a large purchase. We are also able to split payments over multiple cards! For this option, you can contact us and we can walk you through it!

Q: Will an "out of stock" item be restocked?

A: Unfortunately not! These are all one of a kind vintage and antique engagement rings so there is no other ring quite like it! Sometimes we can recreate a sold piece so Contact Us if there is a style that you can't get off your mind! For some of the vintage-inspired pieces, we can often recreate the ring!

Q: Will you sell the setting without the center stone?

A: Unfortunately not! We do not sell only settings and we try to preserve the vintage integrity so we do not separate the diamonds from the setting. 

Q: What shipping do you offer?

A. We offer FREE overnight shipping Monday through Friday in the continental US. The package will come in a UPS or FedEx box and will not have our name on it in case it is a surprise! An adult signature is required upon delivery. The billing address on your order must match the shipping address. International shipments have a flat fee of $100 USD. Contact us for more information on international shipments.

Q: Do you offer payments plans?

A. We do offer layaway plans! Engagement rings can be a large purchase and we want you to be able to get the one that you want before someone else snatches up that one-of-a-kind piece! We offer up to 60-day installment plans and are happy to split payments over multiple cards if needed. Since layaway rings are taken off the market for extended periods of time, they are exchangeable but not returnable. Payments are non-returnable for payment plans. Contact us at to set up a plan that works for you!

Q: What countries do you ship to?

A. We ship to the United States, Canada, the UK, most European countries, Australia, as well as many other countries. Feel free to contact us to see if we ship to your country! There are often duties and taxes associated with importing jewelry so you can contact your country's customs agency for help in calculating that cost! Shipping on international shipments is a flat $100 USD fully insured.
