Some more lovely engagement rings to look at (and obsess over). Today’s theme? Architecture! Yup we’ve got some gorgeous architectural art deco rings for you today. They’re all just flat-out pretty, but they’ve also got this highly structural, skyscraper-y look without sacrificing elegance and delicacy. Like this first one from James Allen, whose setting from the side reminds me so much of a classic art deco sunburst pattern (and a bit of the Chrysler Building):James Allen)
Yes, please. (also: I kind of love that they use another ring as a ring stand to display the main ring. It is working some kind of subconscious, “Now I want two of them” magic on me… one for each hand! Huzzah!).
Moving along to the next Pretty, and this one is a beaut: green is, of course, a classic art deco color, in various shades of mints and emeralds. That’s why this vintage engagement ring is a particular deco delight: via Fay Cullen (who calls this a “lively” pastel green hue), you have to love the architectural/stepped sides and that big, beautiful emerald. Stunning!

If you’re not seeing the architectural influence I did in those two, perhaps these will suit your fancy with their directness: gorgeous engagement rings explicitly, specifically inspired by the art deco landmark Chrysler Building. Things of beauty, all:
