Flower jewelry has the power to inspire rebirth and renewal anytime of year. Its charming characteristics perfectly match the tastes of the glamorous and fashion-forward.
Whether at a gala or just for the everyday, wearing flower rings is a way to channel spring’s vibrancy and add color to your wardrobe.
There are hundreds of flower ring designs from all parts of the globe. Cherry blossoms, roses, and tropical flowers are some of the popular blooms that have been ingeniously crafted to fit a woman’s hand. Bright and gorgeous, colored gemstones are an ideal way to showcase a flower’s natural beauty – whether featured as a single gem or set with diamonds or pearls.
Who doesn’t love the big, bold fashion statement of a cocktail ring? When the ring depicts a flower, the statement somehow seems more elegant and romantic. Flower cocktail rings, lavishly set with colorful gems like ruby, sapphire, emerald, and garnet, are the perfect way to celebrate nature, romance, and the blossoming of love.
As beautiful gifts of nature, flowers have been a popular motif through the ages – used in religious ceremonies and as decorative elements in head wear, clothing, and household objects. Ancient Egyptian funerals featured floral decorations. At the end of 18th century Europe, the Romantic Era marked an unprecedented “blossoming” of flower jewelry and design.
People all over the world often turn to flowers as a language to speak of love and other emotions. A rose may be considered a symbol of love and beauty. A chrysanthemum represents purity and freshness, Jasmine symbolizes constant love, and orchid projects nobility and elegance. Wearing a flower ring not only brightens your outlook, but it can be a way to send a secret message.
An orchid’s unique appearance is hard to miss. Even from a distance, you can see the special sparkle of this ring.
Flower rings keep the spirit of spring alive all year long while adding a feminine and romantic flair to your wardrobe. Flower rings are also a great way to learn about the wonderful diversity and beauty of diamonds and colored stones.
