Nature Inspired Engagement Rings

There are times in life when you want to make not just a big impression, but an unforgettable one. Choosing an engagement ring is one of those times.


From the classic round solitaire to the cluster of sparkling side stones of the 1970s, trends in jewellery styles have evolved with many designs rooted in a love for nature.


Even dating back to the Middle Ages, we know that some wedding rings inscribed with messages of love contained gemstones resembling our modern day engagement rings. Sapphires, rubies, emeralds and diamonds were all used back in the distant past as a token of love.

Flower engagement rings have their origins in the 1700’s. Silver ‘poesy rings’ engraved with flowers were very fashionable in Europe at this time. These flower engagement rings had a love poem or message inscribed on the inside. In fact, Shakespeare often mentioned them in his writings. Upon engagement, a silver betrothal poesy ring would be given to the bride and then replaced with an identical poesy ring in gold following marriage.
