Flower language

Antique flower ring with diamonds in gold & platinum, around 1910

The second volume of the Bildungsbibliothek für Teutschlands Töchter, published in Augsburg in 1834, contains a chapter on the so-called "flower language". This flower language was one of the common means of nonverbal communication in the Biedermeier era, and much of it has survived in proverbs and idioms today. At that time, young lovers in particular could not clearly express what they were thinking and could not clearly express their affection verbally. Flower language therefore became an important means of communication without words. Under the keyword "daisy", the meaning of this flower can now also be read in the volume: The meadow plant stands for gentleness, joyful playing youth, pure and quiet joy, as well as for modesty and love. It is in this spirit that this ring of the years around 1910 is designed. Nine diamonds with a total weight of about 0.78 carats are arranged like the leaves of a daisy, and together all the stones shine in beautiful fire. The stones are set in platinum, which beautifully enhances the radiance of the diamonds. A simple yet solid bar of high karat yellow gold completes the piece of jewelry. The beautifully appointed ring thrives entirely on the natural beauty of its luxurious materials, uniting them in a harmonious design. Speaking in the language of flowers, it is a wonderful gift of love! The ring came to us from London and its hallmarks reveal that it was also made in England.
