If there’s anything more obsession-worthy than The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, it’s the mid-century aesthetic that lights up the show. We’ve rounded up these 1950s engagement ring fashions in honor of Maisel’s season 2. *Potential spoilers ahead!*
These 1950s engagement ring styles have us swooning around the Upper West Side, dancing along the Seine River, and dropping some Susie-inspired F bombs (… fabulous. What did you think we meant?).
We couldn’t help but notice that Midge is still wearing her glamorous 1950s engagement ring in Maisel season 2, and we totally get it. Who’d want to take that beauty off??
Mrs. Maisel barely gives us a glimpse of her ring because she moves as quickly as she speaks. From what we can catch, though, her engagement ring from Joel is a yellow gold stunner with side stones. Not a surprise given the costume designers’ keen eye and 1950s engagement ring trends; side stones, especially baguette shape diamonds, were huge at the time.
Female powerhouses in Midge’s era are legendary both for their actions and for their impact on fashion. Take Jackie Kennedy for example, who brought fresh energy to the 1950s engagement ring scene with her emerald engagement ring.
Household name and ingénue Audrey Hepburn sparked yet another alternative engagement ring trend: stackable rings! She opted for a sleek channel-set baguette diamond eternity ring and added two more gold rings when she got married.
Potentially more sacred than Rose’s pink soap: Midge’s pink wardrobe! If her all-pink ensembles are any hint, we think Mrs. Maisel would plotz over a rose gold ring with a pink sapphire center. Mirror her style by setting a gemstone in one of these vintage rings.
