The Art Deco era roughly dates 1920 - 1940 (though different sources vary here). It was a time that had a taste of clean lines, geometric form, coloured gemstones and vibrant motifs. Diamonds were now used prolifically and platinum was the metal of choice. Invention was everywhere thus this era was the introduction of baguette cut, french cut and asscher cut diamonds!
With greater accessibility to diamonds by the 1950s, there are fewer distinct trends dictating the engagement ring market. However, it’s still clear certain styles were more popular than others. One of the most iconic and enduring shapes of this time period is a large centre diamond with symmetrical smaller diamonds, or baguettes, on either side of it.
