We see a lot of fancy colored diamonds in celebrity engagement rings, but did you know that yellow diamonds have been popular for over a hundred years? Vintage fancy yellow diamonds, cut as cushions, Old Mine cuts, or Old European cuts, have a dramatic golden sparkle that elevates the most simple of settings to something really special. We were so inspired that we chose two Engagement Rings of the Week, one warmer hue set in gold from the 1940s and one cooler tone set in platinum from the 1960s.
It was bound to happen – our three diamond Engagement Ring of the Week just flew out the door to a new home! We know there are soon-to-be brides out there hunting for vintage engagement ring inspiration, so we decided to go ahead and share the photos anyway. If you love this ring, we may be able to find you something similar. Email us at email@example.com with your ideas, and in the meantime, browse more vintage three stone rings.

This beautiful 1940s wedding set belongs to one of our Doyle & Doyle brides. We love the two-tone band she chose to compliment her vintage solitaire diamond ring. The band is from the same period as the engagement ring and they easily could’ve been worn together back in the day, but the classic style feels fresh and modern at the same time. Look for the #doyledoylelove tag to see more photos of our couples and their jewels.

This detailed vintage engagement ring from the 1940s is a little work of art. A center Old European cut diamond sparkles amid swirls of diamonds and delicate millegrain.
Featuring a 1.64ct emerald cut diamond flanked by baguettes, this ring is the epitome of timeless elegance. Emerald cut stones are difficult to photograph, but trust us, this diamond has sparkle and fire like you wouldn’t believe. The clean lines and classic style ensure that it will always be in fashion, plus it’s easy to wear and maintain.
The centerpiece of our curated collection inspired by Charles James is this fabulous vintage engagement ring which mixes architectural structure with a flowing sense of movement. Crafted in platinum, the engagement ring features a 0.93ct round brilliant cut diamond, flanked by trios of baguettes and round single cut diamonds. The light plays differently over the facets of each stone and shape, giving the ring a beautiful shimmer. I especially love the metal detail that weaves around the bezels of the round accents, it reminds me of the draping details in a Charles James gown.
The beginning of March means that it’s Oscar time – the perfect event to inspire our two Engagement Rings of the Week. A beautiful piece of jewelry, like a couture gown, is a work of art that transcends its time period. In this spirit of timeless beauty, we paired our rings with two vintage gowns that were recently worn on the Oscar red carpet. It doesn’t hurt that they’re both ivory and could make killer wedding gowns!

Meet Doyle & Doyle couple, Amy and Joe, who got married last April in Colorado, near Amy’s hometown. After getting her dad’s blessing during a trip to see her family, Joe surprised Amy with her beautiful Doyle & Doyle vintage engagement ring. He describes the proposal:
One more week to our November 15th Grand Opening at 412 West 13th Street! Inspired by the spirit of our new neighborhood, we’re showcasing a 1940s Engagement Ring of the Week that fits perfectly into the industrial, cobblestoned streets of New York’s Meatpacking District. The chunky Old Mine cut diamond is a striking contrast to the streamlined, architectural mounting, fashioned in palladium.
What could be more appropriate for our Halloween Engagement Ring of the Week than a blood red vintage ruby solitaire? Decadent and regal, there’s nothing better than a ruby to make a glamorous statement, and this one fairly glows.
This week is our celebration of October’s birthstones, opal and tourmaline, and you may be wondering why we’re featuring a diamond engagement ring. We always love a colored stone engagement ring, and both opal and tourmaline are some of the most colorful out there! However, both are soft stones, especially opals, and we don’t recommend them for hard, everyday wear.
