Perfect symmetry, clean lines, geometric shapes and striking gemstones are all hallmarks of Art Deco inspired jewellery. At Voltaire diamonds we are lucky to have a vast selection of Art Deco style engagement rings.
Here we look at some of the characteristic features of Art Deco design and detail some of our finest engagement rings.
Art Deco style and emerald cut diamonds go hand in hand. The clean lines of this step cut diamond lends itself perfectly to the designs of the Era. While most Art Deco rings were fashioned in platinum or white gold, this style can be given a contemporary twist by employing yellow or rose gold.
Our Emerald Cut Pave Halo Engagement Ring – ER 1389
Featuring pavé set diamonds with a cut-cornered halo, leading to a pavé set band, this classic ring strikes the perfect balance between modern and Art Deco style. Completed by a reverse tapered diamond set band, this ring is sure to get lots of attention.
Geometric patterns are a distinctive feature of Art Deco designs. The preceding Art Nouveau period was all about swirls and soft, fluid lines. When the Art Deco style came into vogue, these soft lines were quickly replaced with strong, bold lines and geometric shapes were the favour of the day.

Featuring a central emerald cut diamond, embraced by two scallop set diamond halos, this style speaks elegance in abundance. This striking engagement ring design is completed by a streamlined scallop set band. This style also looks spectacular with a coloured gemstone centre.
Pavé is a type of bead setting technique that packs gemstones so closely together that they take on the appearance of a ‘paved’ surface. This setting largely evolved during the Art Deco Era and always looks elegant and sophisticated.
