Gemstone rings have a long, rich history as fashion statements and symbols of relationships — as well as a way to show status and wealth.

Inside, you will see a collection of stylish rings for women that were popular during the first half of the twentieth century — jewelry that was equally at home gracing the hand of a Hollywood actress, a newly-engaged woman, a well-to-do matron, or a girl celebrating an important birthday.

The creative metalwork could be lacy, delicately-carved and intricately engraved — featuring piercings, filigree and milgrain details around stones mounted on basket, trellis or bezel settings.

Sometimes two different color metals were used, along with a variety of brilliant gemstones. Some of the most popular jewel choices included diamond, emerald, amethyst, ruby, sapphire, topaz, aquamarine, citrine and garnet.

In 1926, the Decatur (Illinois) Herald noted, “The most interesting change of recent years in the jewelry business has been the change in wedding rings and diamond mountings. Diamond mountings have changed from the yellow Tiffany style to the white gold 18 karat Belais or platinum with a basket setting.”

They noted that traditional bridal sets also were modernized. “Wedding rings have changed from the wide heavy band ring in yellow gold to the narrow-band engraved ring in white and green gold [a gold/silver mix] and platinum.”

Between the covers of this book, you will find 47 pages of dinner rings, cocktail rings, wedding sets and other kinds of beautiful jewelry for the hands from the three decades between 1919 and 1949.

They’re sorted by date, and each one is printed on just one side of the paper, while page numbering and other image information appears on the reverse, ensuring the coloring side is distraction-free and suitable for framing. (There are also two pages for you to test your pens or pencils.)

Now you can customize these beautiful souvenirs of the past with your very own palette of rich reds, cool blues and warm yellows — and every shade in between.
