Choosing the Right Ring to Propose Marriage During a Game of Dreidel

Much has been said about holiday marriage proposals. Prospective grooms look for ways to stun their future brides, keep the plans a surprise and inject some holiday symbolism into the mix. Hanukkah proposals lend themselves to rings with silver, white gold or platinum settings. Blue gemstones are ideal but not de rigueur. If you have been thinking of proposing marriage during a game of Dreidel, here are some rings that bring a wow factor to the occasion.

1940s Diamond Engagement Ring in a Platinum and White Gold Setting 

This ring celebrates the 1920s and its Art Deco movement. The setting is a mix of platinum and 18k white gold. The center stone is an emerald cut diamond with a weight of 1.87cts. Set along the band’s top, you also notice 14 step-cut diamonds that weigh a combined .50cts. Their graduated sizing brings a heightened visual appeal to the mix. Opt for this ring when you want to leave her speechless.

1940s Rose Gold Ring with an Aquamarine and Diamonds 

If she loves the unusual, then this 14k pink gold ring is a must-see. Artisans designed the showstopper in the 1940s. The blue aquamarine with slight green hues weighs 4.50cts and presents in an emerald cut. On either side of this stone, you find round, full-cut diamonds. Their collective weight is .10cts. The combination of the pink gold and center gem creates an excellent appearance.

1920s Platinum Ring with Diamonds and a Cabochon-cut Sapphire 

It is fair to say that this ring is probably a unique piece. The setting features a traditional platinum Art Deco design. For the focal point, artisans selected a cabochon cut sapphire from Sri Lanka. Weighing 25.0cts, it presents with a rare pure blue color. For sparkle, jewelry makers added 26 full-cut diamonds with a combined weight of .30cts. They adorn the ring’s side ornamentation. You will be hard-pressed to find another ring like this one.

1930s Platinum Ring with Diamonds and a Gray to Blue Sapphire 

This ring features another rarity: a sapphire with a gray to blue color. The subtlety of the color makes it a great engagement ring for the Hanukkah holidays. It weighs 2.33cts and nestles into the platinum setting. Evidence of the Art Deco design favored during this decade is obvious when you look closely at the two diamond baguettes that weigh a collective .15cts. If you only look at one engagement ring today, make it this one.
