Birthstones and nature inspired themes are prominent in pieces from the early Victorian period. In fact, Queen Victoria’s own engagement ring featured a serpent and an emerald. Vintage flower rings often include beautifully colored stones, a staple of the Victorian era. Thankfully, these rings were so loved that they spanned into other periods, and we come across them often enough to offer you a variety to choose from.

Queen Victoria was very influential in the jewelry designs that were popular during her rule and thankfully some of these trends continued after her death and into the Edwardian era. However, new trends were being established as well. Platinum was introduced into many new pieces of jewelry, which made it possible to have more intricate detailing. Diamonds were also very popular during the Edwardian era, however colored gemstones still made an appearance. Jewelry was often light and delicate, and the era is noted for its feminine style.
Vintage flower rings continued to be popular into the Edwardian era, and Orchard Park perfectly encapsulates the light, feminine style of the time. Diamonds are up front and center, with 10 forming an oval halo around the star of the show, a beautiful Burma ruby. The band on this ring is 14k gold, platinum topped, and features subtle detailing near the gemstones. There’s really not much else to say about Orchard Park—it speaks for itself!
Flower rings are great options for someone who is not necessarily traditional and loves pieces that are unusual and charming. One of the great things about vintage flower rings is that although they can fit under one category, each ring is completely different.
