Vintage Octagon Halo Engagement Ring

The Maya ring is a vintage octagon halo engagement ring from the Art Deco era, circa 1920! This beauty centers a GIA certified 1.93 carat old European cut diamond of M color, I1 clarity. The diamond is bezel set in a platinum setting with an octagon-shaped halo of 8 old European cut diamonds. An additional two old European cut diamonds line each shoulder with the side diamonds all combining for approximately 0.82 carats. The gallery and side profiles have hand engravings, and the shank features delicate fluting. The ring is size 5 and can be resized! 

Why We Love It 

There are definite Art Deco themes in this dream ring! The center diamond comes to life with fiery facet patterns and an incredible sparkle. Those chunky OEC diamonds accent the center stone perfectly! The octagon outline lends a nice geometric feel that is both streamlined and somewhat playful—giving an appearance somewhere between the windows on a house or a crystal carousel. Each of the diamonds in the halo is lined with fine hand engraving, creating an excellent interplay of textures! There’s so much detail packed into this gorgeous ring!

Why Halo Engagement Rings?

Halo engagement rings offer a timeless style. Originating in the 1700s, these rings were especially popular during the Art Deco era, when jewelers were experimenting with different geometric designs. Because halos work well with a variety of shapes, they are a perfect way to tie everything together and create uniquely cohesive designs. Here are just a few more reasons halo rings have remained so popular over the years:

  • Halos make the center stone appear fuller and seem to add carat weight, no matter the cut or size
  • Halo diamonds provide excellent shine while keeping the attention on the center stone
  • The halo arrangement is an attractive way to protect the center stone
  • Vintage halos come in a variety of styles that are totally unique

We love vintage engagement rings, and we know you will too! With intricate details, rich sparkle and gorgeous stones, the Maya octagon halo engagement ring offers plenty of reasons to fall in love!

Q: Can my ring be resized?

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?

A. Yes! We do indeed do custom work when we source the center stone and we work exclusively with antique diamonds! We are not currently creating settings for stones that we do not source. The custom process starts at $10,000.

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. Made-to-order rings are final sale. 

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 with another antique diamond.

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.
