As nature bursts into bloom and the promise of sun-kissed days beckon, floral engagement rings are perfect for marking a summer proposal. They may lack the heady fragrance of their real-life counterparts, but these sparkly diamond flowers are symbols of love that will never wilt. We have picked out our top three diamond engagement rings decorated with contemporary floral motifs.
Featuring a diamond in the patented star cut, nestling on top of delicate diamond-encrusted openwork petals, this Louis Vuitton engagement ring is a stunning choice for a modern bride. The jewellery designers at Vuitton are dab hands at incorporating the Maison’s monogram into jewels that subtly reference the iconic LV logo. For a veritable bouquet of bridal jewellery on your wedding day, team Louis Vuitton diamond engagement rings with other jewels from the newly launched Monogram Fusion collection.
Named Floresco after the Latin word for “bloom”, this intricately crafted Mappin & Webb engagement ring is nothing short of a feminine flower bomb. Inspired by the British jeweller’s archives, the symmetrical floral motif resembles a kaleidoscope of blooms, twinkling seductively with round brilliant-cut white diamonds.
This Harry Winston engagement ring from the new Winston Blossom collection launched last month is timelessly elegant, but with a modern edge. Flowers and other natural treasures are perennial motifs in Harry Winston jewellery, from the Sunflower and Lily Cluster collections to the Water and Royal Gardens jewels. The Winston Blossom builds on this romantic theme with a round brilliant-cut diamond, available in three carat sizes, framed by a halo of 16 smaller diamond and platinum petals set on a diamond pavé band.
So, if you’re planning on a summer proposal, bring on the romance and let your love blossom with one of these stunning floral engagement rings.
