Flower Engagement Rings

Flower Rings

With a flower engagement ring, you can present your partner with flowers every day. Pick their favorite florals, choose one for its meaning, or incorporate their preferred color gemstone. There are a variety of ways to flaunt a floral look, depending on the details you choose to accentuate the pattern. You decide how subtle or realistic you want your flower engagement ring to be.

Nature Inspired Engagement Rings

What are flower engagement rings?

A flower engagement ring falls into the category of nature-inspired rings — ones with purely botanical motifs. For example, milgrain might emphasize the veining of leaves; a cluster arrangement can resemble a bouquet; a wispy scroll of metal vines can give a garland effect to your gems. From flower carvings to a hidden halo of petals, here are the most common ways a flower engagement ring can blossom.

1) Flower engagement ring setting: These settings feature floral accents along the band, gallery, and prongs of a ring – or on all three. Classic examples include milgrain detailing that sweeps upwards like a vine, marquise diamond accents that look like buds, and subtly floral engravings that add a hint of botanical bloom to designs.

2) Floral center stone: Rounded or elongated shapes are best for mimicking the center of a flower. Think oval or pear forms, and marquise or cushion cuts. You can also use these fancy diamond shapes to design artistic leaves and boughs around your center stone. Or beneath it, with a rounded gem that sits high like a bud on top of claw prongs.

3) A halo setting: If you want the top-down illusion of looking onto a flower, design the halo around your center stone to look like petals. This is commonly achieved with an arrangement of outer pavé gems. For a minimal aesthetic, you can opt for all metal shapes where petal placement and the prongs holding them work together to create the body of a flower.

Flower Meanings for Engagement Rings

When you’ve found a gorgeous floral design you know your partner will love (or if you’d rather start with their favorite flower), you can explore the floral language of love. Each flower has its own meaning. When suitors and secret admirers in the Victorian era wanted to make their feelings (inconspicuously) known, they’d send the flowers that represented their emotions. Here are a few common themes:

Any flower can be a thoughtful reflection of your relationship, your partner, or your intentions. You can also choose your partner’s birth flower (just like gemstones, each month is assigned a flower).

Popular Gemstones for Flower Engagement Rings

A floral engagement ring often combines rich or pastel hues for the center stone and its setting. Here are the most common gemstones that display the beauty of Mother Nature. Just like flowers, each gem has its own meaning.


As the ultimate symbol of commitment and eternity, it shares the sentiment of the rose. White or colored diamonds are popular for center stones and decorative accents in any flower. They inspire enduring love because of their toughness. They’re also attached to purity, fitting for their brilliance and clarity.


Known for deep blue hue, sapphires actually come in most colors. High on the Mohs scale of hardness, they’re long-lasting and scratch resistant. These gems state wisdom and nobility, a good match for a lily.


Fiery red, these richly colored gems are all about desire. While suited for a rose, a ruby can add energy to any vibrant floral.


The lush green shade is ideal for literal interpretations of plant life, including accent stones that stand in for leaves and stems. Emeralds signify growth, so they’re perfect for an engagement ring before starting the next chapter. As natural emeralds are softer than the other gems, you’ll want a secure setting, like a bezel.
