Let Love Bloom: The Vintage Flower Engagement Ring

Posted on

If you love old-fashioned style but want something other than a classic solitaire, a vintage flower engagement ring is an option you might want to explore. Floral jewelry designs are reminiscent of the Victorian and Art Nouveau periods in history, which were rich with romance and artistic expression. However, choosing an old-fashioned theme doesn’t mean your ring has to look like an antique. Vintage designs can look remarkably fresh if you choose the right design.

Your Vintage Flower Engagement Ring: Symbolic of True Love

It’s easy to see why flowers go hand in hand with love stories. Flowers of all varieties are associated with:

  • - Springtime, renewal, and fertility
  • - The beauty of the natural world
  • - Miracles and limitless possibility
  • - A lovely aesthetic that appeals to almost everyone


The most important factor in choosing an engagement ring for yourself or someone you love is that the ring will be adored for many years to come. Flowers have consistently been a cherished item, and with a vintage flower engagement ring, you’ll never have to worry about becoming bored with the design.

Options for Floral Engagement Rings: Vintage Beauty vs. Modern Shimmer

Choosing contrasting gemstones for your vintage flower engagement ring takes Victorian style and gives it a modern update, as colored gemstones are back in style today. Colored stones can also be used to highlight the floral setting, which you can see in our Holden ring. This beautiful vintage ring from the Victorian era features bright-green demantoid garnets and white diamonds, creating an interesting floral shape.

Accenting Stones on the Band

Accenting StonesFloral rings usually feature a halo setting, a complex and beautiful option that is often matched with a simple band. However, if you like your florals with extra shimmer, you might want to choose a vintage flower engagement ring ring that also has additional gemstones on the band.

Kingsville, one of our rings from the Victorian era, features a GIA certified natural pearl surrounded by alternating diamonds and sapphires, creating the “petals” of the flower. It also has three diamonds on each side of the 14K gold band. 

A Floral Shape Surrounding the Setting

Halo designs that use gemstones to create the floral shape are popular options, but another possibility is a setting that features a metal floral shape. The Dahlia, a beautiful ring from our Art Deco collection, incorporates the floral theme into a modern setting that was commonly found during the 1920s and 30s.
