rings from this time period were typically made of platinum
or white gold. A white-on-white look was popular in fashion,
and extended to the jewelry styles of the time.
engagement rings from the early twentieth century often feature
fine, lace-like filigree detail. The filigree engagement ring
designs sometimes incorporate bows, flowers or birds on either
side of the center diamond.
filigree engagement rings are in high demand, but may still
be found in estate jewelry stores today. It is advisable to
wear a filigree ring alone on the finger, with the wedding band
on the opposite hand. This will best highlight the beautiful
craftsmanship of the engagement ring, and protect the filigree
from being damaged by rubbing against another ring.
