Once we have known about the Edwardian ring model, we can smoothly discus about antique engagement rings settings. Well, basically both ring styles are not too different from each other. If the Edwardian is specific, the antique ring is the general term of old fashioned ring model. And it means we can put the Edwardian ring as a part of the antique ring. Let’s talk more about the Edwardian ring model firstly. Have you ever seen Eiffel Tower? We will point the bottom part of the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower foot appears in A-letter shape with arch accent to connect the fourth standing poles. Let’s imagine that those A-shaped Eiffel Tower feet are connected to for a circle. From that imagination, an Edwardian ring is formed with a half A shape on the top of circle ring. Do you get it? Well, you will understand by seeing some pictures of classic Edwardian ring below.
As like what we have expected, the model of Edwardian ring is similar with the antique engagement rings settings. The ring comes in classic and modern styles. The old fashioned style allows the ring to appear not even simple. There will be a huge ornament which is attached as ring embellishment. And usually the ring circle incorporates stylish and artistic details of carving for the characteristic of old ring. In modern look, the antique engagement ring comes in simpler shape. The ring is commonly made with slimmer circle and smaller stone as embellishment. And there will be some tiny grains to replace the old fashioned carving along the ring circle exterior.
Besides the Edwardian ring style, Celtic and Greek ring style are also included in antique engagement rings settings group. The Celtic ring is more elegant with round diamond cut as characteristic. The Greek also involves round diamond cut as well as the Celtic ring. The difference is only on the style of how we apply that round diamond as ring ornament. The Celtic ring usually applies three horizontal round diamonds as ornament style. And the Greek ring only applies a big round diamond to beautify the antique ring model for engagement.
