Historical Engagement Rings

The history of engagement ring bestowing is far older than you might think. Traditions of giving a ring associated with love and romance go back thousands of years to the ancient world.

From Ancient Greek rings featuring symbolic love knots, to the earliest betrothal rings from Ancient Rome showcasing intaglios depicting the god of love, Cupid. Then we see Medieval ‘fede’

rings; the precursors to the modern concept of wedding rings known as ‘posy’ rings and early diamond set Tudor rings so rare they would be fit for a Queen. Following these are glittering Georgian diamonds contrasted by their silver settings; richly ornamented Victorian engagement rings; elegant and refined pretty Edwardian styles through to bold geometric Art Deco designs and stylish retro rings of the 1940s and 50s.
