The Triumphant Return Of Art Deco – Pippa Middleton’s Engagement Ring
The Art Deco era is perhaps one of the most prominent periods in the history of jewellery design. From the early 1920s up until 1940s, Art Deco widely represented the glamour, exuberance & luxury of the era and paved the way for design elements used in jewellery design to this day.
Typically featuring intricate details and geometric lines, Art Deco design has continued into the twenty-first century, impacting on a variety of other design areas from architecture and interior design to textiles and electronics.
Stars such as Scarlett Johansson and Olivia Wilde sport engagement rings inspired by Art Deco design. The latest celebrity to be proposed to with an Art Deco engagement ring is Pippa Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge’s little sister revealed her new diamond engagement ring this week after hedge fund millionaire, James Matthews, popped the question last weekend.
From the first look pictures, her diamond appears to be an Asscher cut of around 3 to 4 carats framed in a typically vintage style with a channel-set octagonal halo featuring round brilliant diamonds. The ring has similar features to our Art Deco inspired Arcadia engagement ring.

Assuming the centre diamond is of the highest quality, we expect Pippa’s engagement ring itself would retail upwards of £200,000. Since the weekend, Pippa has been spotted out running errands showcasing her stunning Art Deco platinum engagement ring, but it’s not just Pippa who appears to be thrilled with the news.
A spokesperson for William and Kate said “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are absolutely delighted with the news.” While Pippa’s father said “They make a wonderful couple and we wish them every happiness together”.
