This ring from Edwardian England of the first years of the 20th century is entirely dedicated to the colour white. A total of 13 diamonds with a carat weight of about 1.80 ct are set here, forming a white flower. Flower motifs have been extremely popular in jewellery design through the centuries. Similar to a bouquet of flowers, they were expressions of emotions such as affection and love, but unlike their organic cousins, they never wilted. Each era has used flowers and, of course, their forms were varied according to the tastes of the time. Since the 19th century, England in particular has had a fondness for graceful plants and even developed its own "flower language" with which (more or less) secret messages could be exchanged. The following poem, whose author is known only by the abbreviation F.W.H., summarizes the meaning of flowers very nicely: "There is a language, little known, lovers claim it as their own. Its symbols smile upon the land wrought by nature's wondrous hand; and in their silent beauty speak of live and joy, to those who seek for love divine and sunny hours in the language of the flowers." The flower that forms our ring of fine old European cut diamonds is familiar to all of us since childhood. It is the popular daisy that enriches many a lawn with its white flowers. In English it is known as Daisy (also a popular first name, by the way) and represents innocence and purity. However, it also symbolizes a new beginning, which is why daisies especially like to decorate engagement rings. Our ring presents the diamonds in settings of bright platinum, which beautifully matches the white fire of the stones and presents the historic diamonds in fine milgrain settings. A romantic piece of jewellery with a never-wilting little flower for the finger.
