Modern white gold ring with diamonds, circa 2010
"On waste and woodland, rock and plain, Its humble buds unheeded rise; The rose has but a summer reign; The Daisy never dies!" James Montgomery, A Field Flower, 1803 In the language of flowers, still ubiquitous to our ancestors, the daisy occupied a special place. For not only was the little flower equated with innocence, but it, which could bloom all year round, was appreciated for its constancy. The Scottish poet James Montgomery, for example, wrote the above verses after finding a daisy in full bloom on a hike on Christmas Day in 1803. So it is not surprising that the daisy also found its way into love symbolism. Rings with arrangements of pearls or diamonds reminiscent of daisies, known simply as "daisy rings" in English-speaking countries, were worn as early as the 19th century. Due to their simple, classically elegant form, however, they enjoyed great popularity for decades. This modern ring follows in this tradition and varies the old motif in an interesting way. The centre of the ring is occupied by a large brilliant-cut diamond of about 0.45 ct. It is optically enlarged by a surrounding shadow gap. Twelve further diamonds frame the centre stone like petals. Two diamond baguettes accentuate the sides and give the little flower a modern touch. The ring has been crafted in recent years according to Art Deco models and is now a love gift with a very individual appeal!
