Art deco rings are geometric, angular rings that offer a sense of style and class alluding to the art deco period of the early 20th century. Originally inspired by art genres such as cubism and futurism, this style of ring is for those looking to step outside of the box, whether they opt for something more demure, or something more glamorous. Art deco rings are especially popular for their proportional arrangements and decorative bands. Often you will see them with gems of an emerald or Asscher cut with a halo setting around a beautiful center diamond or gemstone or an angular three-stone arrangement that cascades into a pavé band. The stones within the setting would often be closely set together in what is known as a ‘caliber cut’. Typically, when we think of art deco rings we envision quite square and angular designs, however, they can come in round compositions as well.
