For the new 'Maymay' collection, Boodles has transformed five pretty flowers into precious jewels

The new 'Maymay' collection from British fine jeweller Boodles features five classic spring blooms, reimagined as five diamond rings.


This spring Boodles is launching a quintet of floral rings to mark the arrival of the new season. Called the 'Maymay' collection, it sees five pretty flowers transformed into wearable jewels.

By stripping the colours away, the designers at Boodles have captured the distinctive silhouette of each bloom. My favourite is the Rose ring. The contemporary "open" setting - where two stylised flowers sit either side of the finger rather than meeting in the middle - makes it look like the roses are rambling across the hand.

A diamond pavéd stem curls gracefully around the finger on the Tulip ring, trailed by an elegant brushed-platinum leaf. The Jasmine ring sprawls extravagantly across the hand, radiating out from a perfect yellow diamond - a single flash of colour among a shower of sparkling marquise and brilliant-cut diamonds.

Like the best-selling Raindance, Waterfall and Blossom collections, 'Maymay' celebrates the beauty of nature, a recurring theme at Boodles. The launch of the new collection, on 20 May 2013, is timed to coincide with Chelsea Flower Show in London.
