Rectangle engagement rings were popular in the Tudor period, and were often diamond rings. Because Tudor jewellery was often made with Table cut diamonds (an early form of the step cut) the stones they used in jewellery were often rectangle shaped. However, the Tudors also used other semi-precious stones in their rectangle stone rings, such as rubies, sapphires and red spinel. At this time, only the nobility could afford jewellery, so Tudor jewellery such as rectangle stone rings were an indicator of wealth and power.
Although rectangle stone rings and jewellery would be sporadically popular in the centuries after the Tudor period, they went through a renewal of popularity during the Art Deco era of the 1920s. After the horrors of WWI, society wanted a change from the aesthetics and values of the past. The artistic pioneers of the time favoured geometric shapes and clean lines, meaning that rectangle rings were incredibly popular. Rectangle engagement rings from this period are some of the most highly valued pieces in vintage jewellery, and are incredibly prominent in collections of Art Deco engagement rings. Rectangle stone rings would continue to be popular after this period, and are still a popular choice for engagement rings even today.
