Floral engagement rings, also referred to as flower engagement rings, are a unique and non-traditional ring type that incorporate floral motifs such as leaves into the ring setting and design, making the ring resemble a flower. Some floral engagement rings are similar to halo designs and use a cluster of smaller stones around the center stone to mimic petals on a flower. They are a unique and creative expression of blooming love, and some designs can also make a center stone appear larger. Prong settings can also be used to give these types of rings a floral appearance. They are a glamorously feminine and classic ring type, popularly found in some vintage ring designs. Other floral designs use fancy cuts such as marquise and pearl cuts as side stones to mimic flower leaves. These rings are versatile and can incorporate any kind of gemstone or band material to suit the wearer’s preferences. They also tastefully express creativity such as the use of marquise emerald side stones to create petal leaves.

    Floral engagement rings can incorporate vintage designs such as the traditional halo ring setting which was first popular during the Gregorian era (1714 to c. 1830–37) or the use of the milgrain technique. The milgrain technique uses small beads of metal to create borders on the ring. However, nowadays, it is also common to see floral motifs being incorporated into rings through innovative prong settings and the use of different colored and different shaped gemstones, which are more modern design elements. You can ask your jeweler to create a floral engagement ring that is either influenced by modern or vintage design styles of your choice.

Yellow gold is a popular pairing for ruby center stones as it brings out the gemstone’s color. However, colored bands such as rose gold and yellow gold may also be used to draw attention to the floral design.
