21 Edwardian-Style Engagement Rings for the Vintage-Loving Bride

by Staff

While modern and trendy rings are certainly beautiful to look at, there’s something to be said for vintage-inspired engagement rings that almost look like they belong in another time period. These pieces have a special and unique feel to them that truly stands out against the array of minimalist designs available today. And for brides-to-be who favor retro aesthetics, Edwardian-style engagement rings are lovely pieces to consider.

Dating from 1901 to 1910, these rings are known for their intricate and elaborate designs, and are particularly a favorite amongst those with maximalist aesthetics. With carefully detailed settings and plenty of filigree and milgrain edging, Edwardian rings are beautiful and interesting to look at no matter the specific design. The one drawback? Given their uniqueness, they aren’t the easiest to find.

While it’s possible to locate some actual vintage Edwardian-style engagement rings online, there aren’t too many authentic options available today, so you’re likely to come across rings that have been influenced by that time period. For those who are okay with either an original or inspired piece, however, here’s a collection of beautiful Edwardian-style engagement rings that are worth looking into.

Erstwhile Jewelry.

Set in platinum and featuring an Old European cut center stone, this piece is obviously from the Edwardian era. The center stone is surrounded by old rose-cut diamonds that create a really pretty pattern from up above.

While this ring is meant to mimic crystal embellishments in a custom wedding gown, we think the elaborate design is a little reminiscent of Edwardian-style rings. A 3.20-carat round center stone sits in between 88 smaller diamonds in various cuts, resulting in a look with plenty of sparkles.

What to Look for When Buying an Edwardian-Style Engagement Ring

If you really want your Edwardian-style engagement ring to look authentic, look for pieces in white gold or platinum. These metals reigned supreme during that time period, so yellow gold just isn’t going to look as vintage-inspired as you’d like. You should also search for specific stone cuts, such as the Old European cut, which was a very popular style at the time. Additionally, the more detail, the better: think filigree, milgrain edging, and intricate designs that almost look like lace. Edwardian-style rings definitely have an old-fashioned look to them, but that’s just part of the appeal.


  • Ornate and interesting to look at, Edwardian-style rings date back to between 1901 to 1910, and are delicate and detailed pieces, with designs that tend to have a flowery and lacy aesthetic.

  • Edwardian engagement rings are more likely to use white gold and platinum over yellow or rose gold. While they aren’t exactly over-the-top, they can sometimes use a lot of diamonds for added sparkle and usually feature a lot of detail, such as filigree and milgrain designs.

  • Vintage refers to anything that is at least 20 years old, while antique refers to anything that is at least 100 years old.
