Edwardian Engagement Rings

If you’re shopping for an antique engagement ring, Edwardian engagement rings are among the most collectible.

After Queen Victoria died, in 1901, her son took the throne as King Edward VII, ushering in a period of refined luxury in Britain that was mirrored in America and Europe (in France, it was known as la Belle Époque, “the beautiful years”). His short reign served as a bridge between the mores of the past and the ideals of a modern era, as Victorian notions of propriety and femininity began to change. The suffrage movement went mainstream, and women started to make forays into the worlds of higher education and work.

Jewelry design evolved, too, but there was some overlap with late Victorian styles. Nature, for instance, continued to be a major theme, thanks to the influence of the Art Nouveau movement and the tastes of Queen Alexandra, King Edward’s wife. In fact, flowing and floral garland motifs were so popular that the Edwardian period is sometimes called the “garland era.”

The invention of the oxyacetylene torch enabled jewelers to use platinum, which had previously been too challenging to work with. As Fred Leighton’s Selva notes, “Advances in metalsmithing liberated designers to create airy, delicate platinum rings.” It also enabled the lacy filigree and exquisite millgrain work characteristic of the period.
