Specific eras of jewelry are as timeless as a solid gold band, while others—like the ‘80s-style marquise—are more trendy. But what's certain is that there are a plethora of options for vintage engagement rings to suit any style; even big, bold ‘60s cocktail rings with semi-precious gems can be a fun and unique jewelry choice.
“People are always looking back at styles in the past and modernizing them, like in fashion,” says Easter Ahn-Lee, gemologist and founder of Easter Ahn Design. “The details of vintage style jewelry are beautiful and delicate and bring so much more character to the piece. As fashion styles always come back in a new, modern way, vintage-style engagement rings have also come back with a fresh, modern look.”
Halo moissanite engagement rings are a romantic and feminine floral-esque style, with a delicate profile that still packs in the glitter. “These rings usually have a primary moissanite in the center and are surrounded by smaller diamonds,” explains Hopeman. “The classic halo cluster rings we see today are inspired by the Edwardian period from the early 20th century. Queen Alexandra had a love for flowers, which led to a rise in these flower-like styles.” The unique shape of a halo moissanite engagement ring means you can mix and match band styles to create a wedding stack that’s truly 100 percent you.

“This setting has definitely stood the test of time and has been a very popular vintage style,” says Ahn-Lee. “Most popular has been round cut moissanite, pave set around the center stone. However, Art Deco-style halo moissanite engagement rings, using tapered baguettes or other small fancy shapes prongs set around the center stone, have been a new trend.”
